TT Games and Disney Interactive have released the first trailer for LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, the latest LEGO game to emerge from the iconic company’s partnership with Disney. (I’m still waiting for LEGO Tron.) There’s no gameplay shown in the video, just what I’m guessing is probably part of the opening cinematic. But TT Games’ trademark quirky/playful humor is firmly in place, so have yourself a look.
They’ve also unleashed a set of screenshots from what looks like the game’s first few levels, and some concept art that’s really quite lovely. The graphics in these games has really come a long way since the first LEGO Star Wars came out for the original Xbox, PS2, and GameCube. In this new set of media, you’ll see realistic water effects and island plant life and topography.
I’m curious how fans feel about this increasing move away from in-game environments made out of LEGO materials to more realistic materials with LEGO objects living in them. It certainly makes for a prettier game, but it can be a bit jarring to see LEGO Minifig characters roaming around realistic landscapes.
