Electronic Arts kind of missed the start with the latest Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows film and are only planning to release the Part 1 of the game this Fall, when the final movie will hit theaters. However, I’m sure that fans of Harry Potter & Co. will forgive the delay and jump in the wizard’s shoes for a great adventure.
For the first time ever, all the action of the game will take part outside Hogwarts and EA promises that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 will represent a shift in tone for the Harry Potter games. What does this mean? It means that you’ll always be on the run with a horde of merciless enemies on your tail, finding yourselves in unknown territory, far from the safety of the school grounds, fighting for survival at every turn.
“The final Harry Potter adventure has given us the opportunity to make a darker and more action-oriented game than we have before,” says Jonathan Bunney, VP, Head of Production of the game. “We believe we are creating a Harry Potter game that the HD console gaming generation will appreciate and enjoy. We have built new technology specifically to allow us to prove that magic is a truly potent force and, in this game, players will need to use all their skills if they want to survive.”
To amplify the action, players will encounter ferocious creatures from the previous films in addition to the adversaries Harry faces in the seventh film. They will need to muster their most powerful magic against relentless assaults from all sides. There are no more lessons, no more training. This time the danger is real. It’s time for players to fight for their lives. Sounds interesting enough? Wait for the Fall to come and see for yourself if it really is!
