The wizarding world’s favourite sport comes to the mobile game for the first time!
Attention Quidditch fans! From today, you can play Quidditch in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery under the Portkey Games label. The new Quidditch feature is available to all who have advanced to year 2, chapter 6 and beyond in the game.
Complete with new characters, unique environments and fresh gameplay modes, this new addition is the largest feature and content update since the game’s launch in April 2018. We’re sure it will make for many riveting new adventures – now with added Quaffles!
Here’s the trailer for the Quidditch feature:
‘Quidditch is one of the most iconic parts of the Hogwarts school experience and something our players have been clamouring for,’ says Michael Brozman, Senior Director of Product at Jam City. ‘We’ve added in a fun and challenging new skill-based mechanic alongside some very captivating characters who are new to the world of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. As a permanent fixture in the game, we couldn’t be more excited to bring this ongoing, multi-chaptered adventure to players, season after season.’
Season 1 of the new Quidditch adventure debuts at 1PM Pacific Standard Time today, whereupon players will be invited to participate in practices, known as ‘Quidditch Friendlies’ in order to hone their skills. Move over, Cormac McLaggen!
Throughout the seasons, players will unlock new moves – such as Parkin’s Pincer or a Quaffle pass – as they progress through the positions of Chaser, Beater, Keeper, and Seeker. Their ultimate performance in the Quidditch Cup Matches will determine their team's success. Prizes include special brooms, house-themed face paint, and iconic Quidditch uniforms once they make the team.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is available through appstores globally.
