iMac and MacBook owners will finally get their hands on The LEGO Movie Videogame this week when the hit title goes on sale in the Mac App Store.
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 Videogame takes 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.
The game was Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, handhelds and PC, The LEGO Movie Videogame.
The Mac edition is being handled by Feral Interactive which will offer it direct from its own store, via Steam and the Mac App Store.
Mac App Store prices are $32.99 in North America, £22.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €29.49 (inc.VAT) throughout Europe.
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.
Steam customers will be able to purchase the Wild West DLC pack separately.
“With its playful cocktail of characters and worlds, The LEGO Movie Videogame comes with a superb spirit of imagination and fun,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.
“Flying around the Wild West as Superman or swimming through LEGO coral reefs as Abraham Lincoln? What more could a gamer want?”
