Electronic Arts (EA), makers of the Harry Potter video games with WB, have revealed more information about the forthcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows vide game, along with a series of stills and a trailer from the game.  Available to view right here, the thrilling trailer shows Harry going head to head with dementors, Death Eaters, and many other dark magical creatures as he battles his way though the game.  The trailer can also be seen below care of IGN:

 

Photos from the game are also online and include:

The full gallery can be viewed via this link.  A snyopsis for the brand new EA video game is as follows:
Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.  
Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort... alive.  
Harry's only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale—the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks.  
Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became "the Boy Who Lived." No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
Finally, as ComingSoon.com notes, the "new game engine built specifically to leverage the technology of HD consoles ensures high definition graphics and intense combat gameplay that will immerse players in the action like never before. Under development by EA Bright Light Studio, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2" are being developed for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, Windows PC, and mobile devices."

It looks pretty cool but more like a war game… instead of guns, you have wands. lol But I’ll be more interested in the gameplay then the graphics.
