Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows might be the last chapter in the Harry Potter adventures, but at least it’s going out with an almighty bang, with both the feature film and the game of the film warranting two full-length extravaganzas just to handle the weighty plot and all that extra action.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 is a very different game to those that have gone before it, as Jonathan Bunney, VP, head of production at EA Bright Light explains:
“The final Harry Potter adventure has given us the opportunity to make a darker and more action-oriented game than we have before. 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.”

The game is jam-packed with action and combat from start to finish. 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. Players will also encounter fierce beasts from the previous films in addition to the adversaries Harry faces in the seventh film.

The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 video game will be released this autumn on all major gaming platforms, including the Nintendo Wii.
