Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien and Middle Earth rejoice — Feral Interactive will be shipping a Mac port of Snowblind Studios’ The Lord of the Rings: War in the North (US$30) on August 29.

Don’t be surprised if you don’t recall any of the events that take place in the title, which is an action role playing game set in northern Middle Earth. About the only mention of the war in the trilogy came from Gandalf the White, saying “With his far-reaching right hand, Sauron might have done great evil in the North. Yet all that has been averted because a handful of heroes stood in his path.”

That small band of heroes consists of Eradin the Ranger, Andriel the Elf, and Farin the Dwarf, who take on the forces of Sauron in the game. LOTR:WITN is playable in both single-player and co-op multiplayer modes, and requires at least OS X 10.7.5 (be sure to check the system requirements before purchase).
