“Harry Potter: Magic Awakened” Set for Global Release This Year
Calling all Potterheads: The new Harry Potter game, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, is set for global release this year. It’s set to be a “free-to-play immersive collectible card (CCG) and massively multiplayer [online] (MMO) wizarding dueling game featuring a blend of strategy roleplay (RPG).”
Set for a worldwide launch later this year, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened was released in the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan regions in September 2021. It became the biggest mobile game launch of 2021 and reportedly surpassed “all new globally released mobile titles in revenue in its first four months of the year.”
The game will launch for iOS and Android under Portkey Games, which is the “label dedicated to creating new mobile and videogame [sic] experiences inspired by the Wizarding World that place[s] the player at the centre of their own adventure.”
Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is a multiplayer wizarding dueling game that offers an immersive role-playing journey with deep strategy play that fulfills the fan fantasy – all beautifully rendered in a unique art style.
Described as having a “captivating gameplay experience with compelling features, an in-depth collectible card system and [a] beautifully distinct art style,” it sounds as though the magic of Harry Potter has struck the gaming world once again.
In Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, players will begin as young witches and wizards who have just received their acceptance letters to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Fans can customize their own character and go on to experience all the hallmarks of a magical education, including purchasing school supplies at Diagon Alley, wearing the Sorting Hat to be [S]orted into a House and competing in the Duelling Club.
Witches and wizards will also embark on a riveting new story, featuring familiar faces from the original Harry Potter series and new characters alike. As players progress, they will learn spells and charms that can be cast through the form of cards. Players need to accumulate magical knowledge to master these spells, devise unique strategies and form winning combinations – learning what to cast and when – as they venture through increasingly challenging trials, duel other players and master the magic in their own illustrious wizarding journey.
If you live in the Americas, Europe, or Oceania, you can preregister for Harry Potter: Magic Awakened today on Google Play or through the game’s official website, and you’ll receive “exclusive rewards” once the game is released. You’ll also be able to unlock additional rewards, including “in-game currency, cosmetic items and a Niffler card, after surpassing each pre-registration tier.”
