GUILDFORD, U.K.(LadyDragon.com)16/11/10--Today the EA Play Label of
Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) and Warner Bros.
Interactive Entertainment announced that the Harry Potter
and the Deathly HallowsTM Part 1 videogame is
available to buy on multiple platforms in stores
throughout the UK on November 19th.
The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1
videogame is packed from start to finish with action.
Players will be on the run, fighting for survival on a
desperate and dangerous quest to locate and destroy
Voldemorts Horcruxes, engaging with Death Eaters
and Snatchers in epic battle sequences at every turn. To
amplify the action, players will encounter ferocious
creatures, and will need to muster their most powerful
magic against relentless assaults from all sides. No more
lessons. No more training. Its time for players to
fight for their lives.
Theres no doubt that this is the most
exhilarating Harry Potter game weve made to date,
says Jonathan Bunney, VP, Head of Production at EA Bright
LightTM. 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. Its an entirely new
Harry Potter experience that we believe both fans of the
franchise and action games will love.
Players will, for the first time, be able to use Harrys
wand as the ultimate weapon, unleashing an arsenal of
formidable magic to defeat attackers, protect themselves
from harm and evade capture. Players will also find a
number of potions throughout the world - which can be
used in combat and for stealth. A dynamic cover mechanic
will enable the tactical player to utilize existing
objects as cover, or magically create their own, on the
fly. And Harrys famed Invisibility Cloak will allow
players to sneak past more deadly enemies, or get to
various points unseen. The game also includes a series of
challenges, available from the main menu and separate
from the single player campaign, that offers both local
and online leaderboards to compare best scores and times
across the globe.
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, PlayStation®3, WiiTM,
Nintendo DSTM, Windows PC, and mobile devices.
