Feral Interactive today announced that LEGO ® Batman™ 3: Beyond Gotham for Mac will be available on November 28th. Developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for consoles, PC and handheld, LEGO  Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is an all-new DC Comics Super Hero story that propels the LEGO series’ trademark blend of action-adventure gameplay and slapstick humor into the furthest reaches of the cosmos.

When Brainiac, an extraterrestrial android, threatens to shrink the Earth, Batman and the Justice League leap into action to thwart his evil plans. Teaming up with the Legion of Doom, our Super Heroes venture to the distant Lantern Corps planets to locate the Lantern Rings and harness their enormous energy to save the world!

With the combined powers of more than 150 DC Comics Super Heroes and Super Villains at their disposal, players crack puzzles, fend off bad guys and build impressive LEGO gadgets including laser cannons, spaceships and of course the Batmobile. As they travel between interstellar locations, players will discover the thrills of side-scrolling spaceship battles, mind-bending virtual reality mini-games and hi-tech ‘Suits’ that grant the abilities of flight, X-ray vision, invisibility and more.

The Mac release of LEGO  Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will be accompanied on day one by three add-on content packs. Players will rev up the “Tumbler” Batmobile in the  Dark Knight  pack, send an infant Superman to Earth in the  Man of Steel  pack and orchestrate deviously designed party celebrations in the  Batman 75th  pack. These packs will be available separately via in-game or in-app purchase.

“As you might expect from a galaxy-sized game, there’s a huge amount to discover in LEGO  Batman 3: Beyond Gotham,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “From the Justice League Watchtower to the Lantern Worlds, this is LEGO-style action gaming on a galactic scale.”

LEGO  Batman 3: Beyond Gotham  for the Mac will retail on the Mac App Store in North America for US $29.99, £20.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €26.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. Prices will vary slightly for versions of the game sold via other stores. The game will be available from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including  http://www.feralinteractive.com , Steam and the Mac App Store. A trailer can be found at  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=funMTQzDyRQ .

Minimum system requirements call for a 1.8Ghz Intel Mac with at least 4.0GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.9.5 or later. The game supports AMD 4670, NVIDIA 9600/GT120/GT330, and Intel HD 4000 series graphics cards or better.
