The agreement grants a licence to produce physical TCG products as well as digital products for PC, Mac and mobile devices. The TCG will release in 2011, following the October 26th, 2010 launch of Lego Universe.

"We’re obviously very excited about Lego Universe, and adding a TCG provides additional content, as well as a brand new customisable play experience," said Mark William Hansen, senior director, Lego Universe.

"The Dire Wolf team are experts in this space, and their passion for excellence made them a natural choice for this project."

Scott Martins, president of Dire Wolf Digital added: "Creating a game with the Lego Group and NetDevil is an exciting opportunity, allowing us to work with a beloved brand and great business partners.

"The creativity and ‘build anything’ spirit of the brand and Lego Universe fit perfectly with trading card games, where players are limited only by their imaginations."
