Feral Interactive says The LEGO Movie Videogame will be released for the Mac on October 16. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, handhelds and PC, its an adaptation of the hit film, The LEGO Movie. When released, the game will be available for download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including the Feral Store, Steam and the Mac App Store.
Here’s how the game is described: “The LEGO Movie Videogame tells the story of Emmet, a seemingly average construction worker recruited by a group of insanely imaginative ‘Master Builders’ to bring down the over-controlling Lord Business, who insists everyone follow building instructions. Players can take on Emmet and over 90 other LEGO characters, harnessing the wonderfully creative powers of the Master Builders including Wyldstyle, Batman, Gandalf and the irrepressibly cheerful Unikitty.
“With a madcap story told using clips from the film and original in-game dialogue, The LEGO Movie Videogametakes players from the towering metropolis of Bricksburg to the rainbow-colored world of Cloud Cuckoo Land and on to the lair of Lord Business himself. Each of these fantastical worlds, filled with secrets and hidden challenges, can be explored in single-player mode or with a friend or family member in drop-in/drop-out co-operative play.
“Versions of The LEGO Movie Videogame purchased anywhere besides Steam will include the Wild West DLC pack, which contains four additional characters as well as four pairs of magical pants which grant a character the power to perform spinning attacks, jump large distances, uncover valuable studs and start fires.
The LEGO Movie Videogame for the Mac will retail on the Mac App Store in North America for US$32.99. Prices will vary slightly for versions of the game sold via other stores. A mini-site dedicated to the game is available at http://tinyurl.com/ky3m345 .
