Feral Interactive today announced that the action-adventure game LEGO The Lord of the Rings will be released for the Mac on Thursday, February 21st. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, handhelds and PC, LEGO The Lord of the Rings brings the unique brick-based humor of the LEGO games to the legendary world of Middle-earth.

"Middle-earth is a magnificent setting for a LEGO game," said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. "The game's open world captures the films' huge scale and even in the medium of bricks, the visual design is captivating."

LEGO The Lord of the Rings tells the story of Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit, who is tasked with carrying the One Ring to the dark land of Mordor and destroying it in the fires of Mount Doom. With a fabulous cast of minifigures, dialogue from the films and LEGO versions of Rivendell, the Shire and Mordor, LEGO The Lord of the Rings is an imaginative and energetic retelling of the renowned movie trilogy.

Players can embark upon the quest in heroic single player mode or forge a Fellowship with friends and family during drop in/drop out co-operative play. On the way, they will master the special skills of more than 80 playable characters, face off against Ringwraiths, Mountain Trolls and the Balrog, and smash hundreds of Orcs to pieces with Aragorn's sword, Legolas' bow and Gimli's axe!

LEGO The Lord of the Rings is an open-world game that gives players the freedom to explore Middle-earth on foot, on horseback or by magic. Alongside the epic events of the main story line, players will also set out on perilous side quests, hunt for hidden treasures and craft new weapons and items to help them on their journey.

Minimum system requirements call for a 1.4GHz Intel Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.7.5 or later. The game does not support the following graphics cards: ATI X1xxx series, ATI HD2xxx series, NVIDIA 7xxx series, NVIDIA 8xxx series and Intel GMA series.

LEGO The Lord of the Rings for the Mac will retail in North America for US $29.99, 19.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and 24.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. When released, it will be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide.
