In what is most definitely a treat for Harry Potter fans, author J.K. Rowling will post a brand new Halloween-themed story online today.

The 1700-word story, to be published on Pottermore.com, focuses on Hogwarts professor and former witch Dolores Umbridge, who first appeared in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

Umbridge, who featured as the Senior Undersecretary to the Minister for Magic, is not only one of the most malicious Potter characters, she is the only person other than Lord Voldemort to leave a permanent physical scar on Harry.


The world-famous novelist announced earlier this month that she had written a new story as a Halloween surprise for fans.

The website has been posting clues on its blog with the tagline 'All will be revealed October 31'.

In July, Rowling released another Harry Potter story on Pottermore.com, attracting so much traffic that the website temporarily crashed.

Software giant Google Inc plans to launch a mobile messaging app it is likely to test in India and other emerging markets, the Economic Times reported on Friday, citing sources.

The Mountain View, California-based company is also looking at localisation, by adding Indian language support and voice-to-text messaging, the newspaper said.

A Google spokeswoman said the company did not comment on speculation.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Zombies Sold Separately As Part of $50 DLC Pass

Fans were excited when last week a leaked trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare seemed to show that a Zombies mode would be making it into the game. As Advanced Warfare is from Sledgehammer, Activision’s newest developer recruit, it was unknown if Zombies, a Treyarch tradition, would appear as a mode in the new game.

Now, we have confirmation that Zombies are indeed coming to Advanced Warfare, but how they’re coming might upset fans.

Announced by a GameStop press release, access to an upcoming Zombies mode is granted through the purchase of the game’s mammoth $50 DLC Season Pass, which includes five maps from the get-go, all maps after that, and now apparently, Zombies.

Though Call of Duty is known for its traditional deathmatch-style multiplayer and summer blockbuster-esque story campaigns, there is a huge contingent of fans who adore Zombies, and some who play it almost exclusively, as it’s a very different type of game than any of the other modes with its own kind of strategy and…
