Warner Bros. has announced that it has teamed up with TT Games and the LEGO Group to create LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4.
The game will be based on the first four books and films of the Harry Potter series, bringing magical gameplay mixed with light humour to players.

Hogwarts castle is there to explore, as well as Diagon Alley, the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmead.
“With LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 we are creating an open, wide-ranging experience within Hogwarts that is full of fun and LEGO magic,” said Tom Stone, managing director, TT Games. “Harry Potter is one of the most beloved and well-respected characters, and we look forward to bringing gamers a new way of interacting in the universe with the LEGO games’ great humour and exploration.”
