Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. will release the new Harry Potter game here on 3rd July, a couple of weeks before the new film (17th July).

We're onto the sixth and penultimate book now, the Half-Blood Prince, and the world is gloomier still. Thankfully this means plenty of wizard duels - plenty of screams of "Stupify!", "Expelliarmus!" and "Avada Kedavra!" Ron's love life will also be playable, disgustingly, and we'll be able to embark on some Quidditch and potion-brewing as the story flows on.

Once again the game is being made for every platform, and once again we hope this instalment is better than the rest. EA has had an extra six months to polish, thanks to Warner delaying the cinematic launch to cover weak spots on its release schedule.
