New Harry Potter & The Half-Blood Prince Trailer, Featurette
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

Apple recently posted a new trailer and featurette for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The videogame gives players the chance to return to Hogwarts and help Harry and his friends survive their sixth year at the magical school. The game features the ability to cast spells and move at the same time, the chance to take to the air in Quidditch matches, and the challenge of creating a variety of magical potions.

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.
