Lego & Epic Games Say New Metaverse Platform is “Safe & Fun for Kids”


 

The Lego Group is the latest company to dip their toe into the pool of the metaverse as the toy company teamed up with Epic Games to create a family-friendly platform. 

 

There are no details yet about what the site will look like, or what it will offer users, but both companies revealed that they plan to “shape the future of the metaverse to make it safe and fun for children and families.” 

 

There are three principles they will follow as they “build an immersive, creatively inspiring and engaging digital experience” for adults and children alike. 

 

Those principles are to protect children’s right to play by making safety a priority, safeguarding children’s privacy, and empowering users of all ages by giving them tools that will let them control their digital experience.

 

Epic Games has a good track record in terms of creating kid-friendly online spaces. They are behind the mega-popular gaming platform Fortnite. Lego also has experience creating virtual worlds for children as well, with games like Lego Worlds and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga
