Today, EA Play and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 videogame is now available in stores throughout North America and Europe. In the game, players will be on the run, fighting for survival on a desperate and dangerous quest to locate and destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes, engaging with Death Eaters and Snatchers in epic battle sequences at every turn. To enhance the experience, players will encounter ferocious creatures, and will need to muster their most powerful magic against relentless assaults from all sides.
“There’s no doubt that this is the most exhilarating Harry Potter game we’ve made to date,” says Jonathan Bunney, VP, Head of Production at EA Bright Light. “The darker tone of the movies and books, together with the rich action storyline of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and the potential of HD gaming technology has enabled the development team to give the player more powerful magic, more dangerous enemies and an overall more exciting experience than ever before.”
Developed by EA Bright Light Studio, the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 videogame is now available for the Xbox 360, which offers an additional KINECT mode where players can actually cast magic via gestures and the PlayStation 3.
