Lego Lord of the Rings hits Mac this month

Feral Interactive handling port for Apple computers due for release February 21.

Lego The Lord of the Rings will travel to Mac on February 21, developer Feral Interactive announced today.

The game launched last year for consoles, portables, and PC. It is based on Peter Jackson's Oscar-winning Lord of the Rings motion picture trilogy and follows the storylines of each film, using dialogue from the movies.

Unlike the Lego Harry Potter franchise, which was split over two games, the entire Lord of the Rings saga will be told in one entry.

The game follows Frodo Baggins and the unlikely fellowship that sets out from Rivendell on a dangerous journey to destroy The One Ring and bring peace to Middle-earth. Throughout Lego The Lord of the Rings, players will enter the Mines of Moria, climb the Misty Mountains, and battle orcs, uruk-hai, and the nasty balrog.

In keeping with the staples of the Lego franchise, Lego The Lord of the Rings is peppered with lighthearted interpretations of the source material, with gamers tasked with solving puzzles along the way. Character players featured in the game include Frodo, Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, Boromir, Sam, Merry, and Pippin.

Hopefully it's less buggy than the Wii version.
