Lego Pirates of the Caribbean Announced #Lego

It’s been announced that UK based game developers Travellers Tales will be putting their skills into yet another LEGO game, this time around it will be Pirates of the Caribbean getting the block building makeover.

Travellers Tales have already converted some classic film titles into LEGO including Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman and Harry Potter so it’s no great surprise to see another successful film franchise given the LEGO overhaul.

The game will be based on the first 3 films and will feature 20 levels and 70 playable characters and will include a two player co-op mode. I’m a big fan of the LEGO franchise and was pleased to see that in LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4 a few changes were added to mix things up to stop the LEGO series becoming stale.

It’ll be interesting to see what new features will be added to POTC and will hopefully included some amazing ship battles using the good ol’ LEGO cannons like I had on my pirate island as a kid!

The Lego Pirates of the Caribbean game release date is May 2011 and will be released on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, PSP and DS around the same time that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is released in the cinema.
