The LEGO Group and 2K have announced LEGO 2K Drive, a driving adventure game developed by Visual Concepts. And you won’t have to wait very long to experience it, since the game is heading to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC on May 19, 2023. The game looks to be a mix of Mario Kart’s driving mechanics and Forza Horizon’s open world experience, blended with LEGO charm. What really sets LEGO 2K Drive apart from other racing games out there is the level of customization — it is LEGO after all. Players will have access to over 1,000 unique LEGO pieces to build their own vehicles. And that is how you get to race a hamburger in a video game. There’s a tie-in with at least one real automaker, as McLaren Automotive will bring the McLaren Solus GT and McLaren F1 LM to the game, serving as the cover cars.

In LEGO 2K Drive, players will explore Bricklandia, racing across various biomes as they strive to win the coveted Sky Cup Trophy. Like Forza Horizon and other similar open-world racing games, LEGO 2K Drive will let players choose the activities they’re interested in doing, from racing to minigames, challenges to collectibles. If you really want, you can just drive around and destroy things.

LEGO 2K Drive offers solo and two-person co-op, local or online. The Standard Edition of the game is priced at $59.99 for older-generation consoles and $69.99 for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. There is an Awesome Edition available for $99.99 that includes a new vehicle, vehicle flair, an in-game LEGO minifigure, Year 1 Drive Pass, and access to four individual post-launch seasons of Drive Pass content. Finally, the $119.99 Awesome Rivals Edition gets you everything from the Awesome Edition but includes multiple new vehicles and multiple in-game LEGO minifigures.

“Video games have long been an important way our fans experience the magic of the LEGO System-in Play, and 2K’s strong track record of delivering quality, innovative titles for a broad range of audiences makes them the perfect partner to create the next iconic AAA LEGO games,” said Remi Marcelli, Head of LEGO GAME. “Beginning with LEGO 2K Drive, we’re excited for fans to experience a fresh new take that builds on the LEGO humor and fun fans have come to expect.”

As part of the reveal, 2K and The LEGO Group confirmed LEGO 2K Drive is the first release in a multi-title partnership between the two companies. So we should expect more 2K LEGO titles in the future.
