LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 is the second installment of the LEGO Harry Potter series. The game is based on the final three books and four films of the Harry Potter franchise: Order of the Phoenix, Half Blood Prince, Deathly Hallows – Part 1, and Deathly Hallows – Part 2. Featuring 24 story events and a host of new areas such as Godric's Hollow and the Ministry of Magic, your journey to defeat the evil Lord Voldemort is finally set.

Multiplayer is included via an offline drop-in/drop-out co-op system. Up to two players can play and use different characters to solve puzzles and find gold bricks.
