MUMBAI: The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced that two Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows videogames are in development to coincide with the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series from Warner Bros. Pictures, which will be told in two full-length parts.
The Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 videogame will be released this autumn on all major gaming platforms. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 represents a shift in tone for the Harry Potter games. On the run with a horde of merciless enemies on their tail, players will find themselves 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. 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,” says EA Bright Light VP, head Production Jonathan Bunney.
“We have enjoyed a tremendous partnership with EA in collaborating on the Harry Potter videogames. Over the years, the games have grown ever closer to the films in their art direction and in their spirit so it is exciting to know that the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 videogame will capture the action and suspense of the upcoming film,” said Harry Potter films series producer David Heyman.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 are being developed for the PLAYSTATION3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, Windows PC, and mobile devices.
