First “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” Video Game Details Released

Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have issued a press release with some information about the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire video game.

Harry is mysteriously selected as the fourth competitor in the dangerous Triwizard Tournament. Each contestant in this international competition must confront a fire-breathing dragon, rescue friends from the icy depths of the Black Lake, and navigate the twisting mysteries of a vast, dangerous maze. Players will experience all the thrills of the movie — from the Quidditch World Cup campsite to a heart-stopping duel with Lord Voldemort himself!

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are all playable characters, modeled after their big-screen counterparts. In this game, an all-new spell-casting system allows players to feel the magic for the first time as the controller shakes and reacts with every flick of the wand. Players can also team up with friends in co-operative play to combine their magic and produce more powerful spells than ever before!

The game is currently under development in EA’s United Kingdom studios and is being created for these gaming systems: Playstation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance, PC, and Sony’s new handheld PSP. A release date is set for mid-November.
