Traveller’s Tales and Warner Bros. Interactive, the dynamic duo of the video game industry that has brought to the world a vast library of LEGO video games over the years, knew well of their consumer base’s interest in creating sprawling LEGO-built virtual worlds. They’ve catered to this desire by releasing LEGO Worlds in September 2017 allowing LEGO fans to recreate any world of their fancy in the virtual, brick-building sandbox game. From ancient Egypt to the unexplored vastness of space, we now have another LEGO Worlds fan recreating one of the most iconic video games of all time in the title of Metal Gear Solid by Konami.
One of LEGO Worlds’ most hyped features was a brick-by-brick editor tool that enabled players to custom-design their own game stages and environments if they’re willing to spend the time doing it. YouTuber Craig Kelly certainly did, judging from his digital MOC of the setting for classic Konami videogame on PlayStation.
In a 20-minute video upload, Craig Kelly walks audiences through his painstaking recreation of Shadow Moses Island as seen in Metal Gear Solid, with a minifigure character dressed up to look like video game protagonist Solid Snake. What’s impressive is Kelly’s claim that he made all the environments using LEGO Worlds brick editor all from memory.
It took him about 30 hours total work on the brick editor to make all the familiar locations from the incredible hit video game created by Konami years ago. Everything is there from the underground dock, the helipad, the bunkers and even the snowfield from the Metal Gear Solid 4 iteration.
LEGO Worlds is playable on Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Nintendo Switch. If you haven’t tried LEGO Worlds yet, you may order your copy via Amazon.
