TT Games and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have announced that a bundle pack of Lego Harry Potter games will be arriving for the PlayStation 4 on disc for the first time. The pack will be available next month on the PlayStation 4 starting October 18th, featuring remastered content and all of the DLC.
The news was made known via a press release that Warner Bros., sent out to inform the general public that the Lego Harry Potter games are prepping for re-release on Sony's system. It's crazy to think that some of these games are arriving on the PS4 for the very first time. The bundle pack will include the collection of Lego Harry Potter: Years 1 -- 4 along with Lego Harry Potter: Years 5 -- 7.
Very much like other Lego games from TT Games, players will take on the roles of Harry Potter and his friends, as they journey through many of the magical worlds and locations made familiar and popular from both the book and movie franchise.
The first Lego Harry Potter collection centers around the first four books and films, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The second Lego Harry Potter collection, spanning years five through seven, will take players on a journey through Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and finally, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Two additional DLC packs are also included in the bundle, this includes the Character Pack, which features 10 additional playable characters, such as Godric Gryffindor, Harry from the Yule Ball, Helga Hufflepuff, Gilderoy Lockhart in a straightjacket, Luna Lovegood as the Lion Head, Peeves, Hermione in a pink dress, Ron Weasley as a ghoul, Rowena Ravenclaw, and Salazar Slytherin.
The Spell Pack DLC features five additional spells, including Cantis, Densaugeo, Ducklifors, Melofors and the Tentaclifors. If you're familiar with the spells and magic casting within the Harry Potter movies and books, then many of those spells probably ring familiar to you.
Like many of the other Lego-themed games based on popular franchises and brands, gamers are able to select their character, hop into the wonderful world of Harry Potter and build, construct, modify and tinker with various structures and objects to help Harry and his friends get through various levels.
The TT Games series of Lego games have been very popular over the years, gaining a lot of fame with the Lego Star Wars titles and eventually moving on to things like Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones.
The gameplay was a little too samey and simple for my tastes (and just because they're games made for kids doesn't mean they can't appeal to adults), so I was never really into these particular sets of games, but I really did enjoy Lego Racers back when it was on the N64. That game was an addictive blast.
Anyway, you can look to get your hands on Lego Harry Potter Collection for the PlayStation 4 starting October 18th for $49.99. You can learn more by visiting the official website.
