Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince Available This Week
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced that the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince videogame will be available in stores across the globe this week. Available on multiple platforms, the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince videogame allows players to experience the game adaptation of the film based on J.K. Rowling’s sixth book in the Harry Potter series.

In the game of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, players return to Hogwarts™ – reproduced from movie blueprints in exacting detail - to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. Players will be able to master gesture-based spell-casting as they explore the Hogwarts school grounds, from the heights of the Astronomy Tower to Professor Slughorn’s Potions classroom in the depths of the dungeons and iconic locations in between such as the Gryffindor™ common room and the Great Hall.

For the first time players can move and cast spells simultaneously, creating intense and fast-paced wizard duels as the champions from each house line up to challenge the Boy Who Lived. Players can also chase down the Golden Snitch™ as they take to the air as the Seeker on the Gryffindor Quidditch™ team. In addition to spell-casting and flying, players can put their potion-mixing skills to the test when they learn how to mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron’s romantic entanglements as they journey towards the dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.
System Requirements:
• Mac OS X 10.5.5 or later
• 1.8GHz Intel (Intel only, PowerPC not supported)
• 256MB RAM
• 8x DVD-ROM or faster
• 5GB hard disk space
• ATI X1600 or Intel X3100 or better 3D graphics.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince costs $30 and is available as a hybrid release featuring both Mac and PC versions on the same DVD.
