It's not known what type of game it will be, but you can expect some touch controls and an action-adventure feel from the description.
The last game is LEGO Legends of Chima Online, a free-to-play, online world developed by WB Games Montreal. Players will build and customize their kingdom in the world of Chima, explore massive environments, uncover secrets and treasures, earn rewards, build weapons and take on missions to help Lavel and his friends. One of the goals is to "provide kids with a safe and incredibly immersive connected game experience."
