The great news keeps on coming, as EA the makers of the Harry Potter video games, have let TLC know they have now released a brand new trailer for the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” video game. Fans can watch the trailer via this link. Update: You can now see stills here in our image galleries. The site describes the game as follows: “Whether you’re a Quidditch master or a mere muggle, you’ll find something to entertain in this newest addition to Harry Potter’s storied saga. With a massive free-roam setting and a plotline intimately interwoven with the movie script, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince promises to bring back the magic.”

There is also a new interview online with one of the developers of the video game, who reveals they will be using the movie actor voices for their characters in the game, as well as some new features:

: Have any of the cast been involved in the game’s production? Are they providing voices? CR: Yes. Many of the movie cast lend their voices to the game (including Rupert Grint – who plays Ron Weasley, Tom Felton – who plays Draco Malfoy, and Evanna Lynch – who plays Luna Lovegood).Y!: Which locations from the movie or book will we be able to visit?

CR: We are really pleased to confirm that as a player you will have the opportunity to explore all of Hogwarts, from the Boathouse right through to the brand new Astronomy Tower, plus key locations such as The Burrow and The Horcrux Cave.

Y!: Romance is a big theme in Half-Blood Prince. Are you planning to capture those elements in the game? CR: Yes we are. We are focusing on the trials and tribulations of Ron Weasley, and also the developing relationship between Harry and Ginny Weasley.

Y!: Will we be able to roam freely around the game, like we could in Order of the Phoenix? CR: Yes. Hogwarts is even bigger than last time - you can find lots of new areas in the castle grounds - and you can roam at will.

To add to the excitement (and a way to add another spark to your holiday weekend!) EA will launch their brand new Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince videogame website, tomorrow July 4 at 2pm (GMT) via this link. We will update with that once it goes live tomorrow.

The “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” video game will be released this November. Thanks so much to EA, and enjoy!
