Feral Interactive says Tomb Raider: Underworld will be released for the Mac on Thursday, May 31.. Developed by Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes for Windows and originally published by Eidos Interactive, Tomb Raider: Underworld comes to the Mac for the first time under the Feral Legends label.

Here’s how the game is described: “When Lara Croft uncovers proof that the Norse Underworld is real, she realizes that it contains the answer to a mystery from her own past, a prize worth more than any treasure in the world. She embarks on a quest to find it, and in doing do risks unleashing a force that could lay waste to all civilization.

“As Lara, players will experience an astonishing level of physical interaction with a beautiful, unpredictable and treacherous world. From the crystalline waters of coastal Thailand to the rain-lashed jungles of Mexico and on to mysterious sunken edifices deep beneath the Arctic sea, Lara won’t stop until she knows the truth.

“With over a thousand motion-captured moves at her disposal, Lara responds deftly to her environment by free-climbing, wall-jumping and using found objects to create new paths. Each level is an epic multi-stage puzzle which players will need to use all their cunning — and Lara’s athletic abilities — to solve.”

When released, it will be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including http://www.feralinteractive.com/ and the Mac App Store.
