You Shall Not Pass on Lego Lord Of The Rings

Feral Interactive seem to have taken to announcing their games by springing out of cupboards, yelling “surprise!” and then hopping away. Well, we were certainly taken by surprise with their announcement of Lego Lord of the Rings, which is coming to Mac next week.

The latest flavour of Lego games lets you guide the Fellowship through a series of levels based around Peter Jackson’s trilogy, and features the music, voice overs from the films, as well as the usual Lego humour. Rock, Paper, Shotgun’s Adam Smith said of the Windows version: “If you are happy to spend hours of your life exploring a small and lovable Middle Earth, smashing things and seeking out simple puzzles, then you will find Lego Lord of the Rings to be exceedingly generous”.

The game will be available on February 21st, priced at $29.99 / £19.99 / €24.99. System requirements and a trailer are below, and you can expect a full review soon.

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.
