Feral Interactive has today announced that the action-adventure game LEGO ® Harry Potter™: Years 5-7 will be launched on the Mac on Thursday, February 16th. Originally developed by TT Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for games consoles and PC, LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 for Mac is the follow up to the top-selling LEGO® Harry Potter™: Years 1-4 and the latest in a successful line of LEGO titles to release on the Mac.
The game completes the saga of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™ with a spell-binding adventure taking them to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry™ and beyond. Locations from the last four films, such as Grimmauld Place, Godric’s Hollow and the Ministry of Magic, are re-imagined through the incredible and ever-changing prism of LEGO. This time, players will experience the stories of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix™ , Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince™, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ - including Harry’s last years at Hogwarts and his battle with Lord Voldemort™ in the ultimate fight between good and evil.
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 provides fans of all ages and skill levels with a number of new spells to cast, puzzles to solve, locations to explore and villains to defeat using an all new dueling system. New gameplay features include Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes boxes, which give players invaluable and comical assistance; Spectrespecs, which allow players to see and build with otherwise invisible Spectrespecs LEGO; and Ron’s Deluminator, which helps uncover hidden secrets. Players can also discover and unlock 200 characters, including Fenrir Greyback™, Bellatrix Lestrange™ and Professor Horace Slughorn™, all while enjoying the humor and creative story-telling that are the hallmarks of LEGO video games.
The game features easy drop-in and drop-out cooperative gameplay with a dynamic split screen, giving kids, parents and friends hours of enjoyment together as they play through 24 story events and attend 16 different lessons in the magical and endlessly rewarding LEGO adventure.
“ LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is a wonderfully light-hearted and imaginative game in which the characters’ special abilities all have unpredictable effects on the world,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.
