New Harry Potter Trailer Makes You Spooge

Right before you jump down my throat to tell me how much of a flaming fagola Harry Potter and his friends are (I love the books and films, by the way), take note at the trailer above.

What you just saw was a full-length video of awesomeness brought to you by Mr. Potter and his wand. Experienced from a third-person perspective, Potter fights a gargantuan battle against wizards and witches, shooting flashes of light onto collapsing enemies, and shielding himself from the barrage of incoming projectiles using a barrier of magic he creates as he utters some unfamiliar words in an unfamiliar tongue.

Looking at the video, many of you might not be familiar with a much darker side to the series. Having witnessed a grand spectacle of conjured foods at their grand dining hall, decapitated ghosts, and animated photographs earlier in the series, Deathly Hallows touches base on a much more serious topic – aside from hauntingĀ basilisks and creepy old men named Dumbledore who enjoy “talking” to Hogwarts children in the privacy of his chambers – which is also the last book of the series.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is not what you’d expect from a video game based on the popular series of family-friendly books, from what you can see. Instead, the game seems to focus more on a much more adult-like facade. Sort of like Gears of War meets Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Personally, I’ve never been a fan of the games. But from what I’ve seen so far in this trailer, EA has convinced me into getting the latest installment to the franchise. In fact, I’m seriously looking forward to it. Please look at the trailer and tell me that EA hasn’t convinced you that shooting wizards and witches with a chopstick has become the next best thing since the chick who plays Hermoine Granger turning eighteen.

The game is due to release this autumn, alongside theĀ theatrical release of the first part to the film.
