Lego City Undercover Out Today On New Platforms
Did anyone order a hero?
Action, adventure, and a big dose of humor; the hallmarks of Lego games are all there in Lego City Undercover, and now you can play the game on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for US $60 / £50 / AU $90. The game is out today in North America, on April 5 in Australia, and in Europe on April 6.
The game was originally released for the Wii U in 2013, and we here at GameSpot gave it an 8/10 for its joyful, open-world gameplay. It follows Chase McCain, undercover police officer and Lego disguise expert, as he tracks down public enemy number one Rex Fury. Fury has been on a city-wide crime wave and, of course, only you can stop him.
Lego City Undercover features an open-world environment with 20 unique districts. You bust thieves, drive a variety of vehicles, and collect items across Lego City. The game also features a two-player cooperative mode.
The game gives you the ability to choose between eight disguises. Each one gives Chase unique skills and abilities. In true Lego fashion, you meet characters throughout the game that become playable. There are more than 300 unlockable characters in Lego City.
Lego City Undercover raised concerns last month when a cover of the game's Nintendo Switch release showed it required up to 13 GB of storage (about 40% of the console's hard drive space). Nintendo later said this was a mistake, and players who buy the physical version will be able to enjoy the full game without any extra downloads required.
