Posted by Megs

In an update today, Quidditch has been added to the mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery! This brand new feature is an “ongoing, multi-chapter and multi-season adventure that is permanently available to all players that have advanced to year 2, chapter 6 and beyond of the game’s story.” The update will be available today, September 4 at 1PM PST.

Attention Quidditch fans!  Starting September 4,  players can play Quidditch in Jam City’s popular RPG mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery.  The new Quidditch feature is an ongoing, multi-chapter and multi-season adventure that is permanently available to all players that have advanced to year 2, chapter 6 and beyond of the game’s story. Complete with all new original characters, unique environments, riveting storylines, fresh gameplay modes, and an engaging narrative, this new addition to the game is the largest feature and content update since the game’s launch in April 2018.
 
“Quidditch is one of the most iconic parts of the Hogwarts school experience and something our players have been clamoring for,” said Michael Brozman, Sr. 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 on September 4 at 1PM PST, whereupon players will be invited to participate in practices, known as “Quidditch Friendlies” in order to hone their skills. 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.

Global Challenge Coming to Harry Potter: Wizards Unite
Posted by Megs

The Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival, happening Labor Day weekend, August 31st and September 1st at White River State Park in Indianapolis is fast approaching! WB Games and Niantic announced a Global Challenge that will coincide with the event. 

Some Sunday tickets for the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival are still available via the app, so get yours now!

Participants at the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Fan Festival will not be the only ones who get to experience the new content coming to the game including new Portkeys and the much-anticipated introduction of Dragons! While Fan Festival attendees will experience all of the new Dragons and Portmanteaus, players all over the world will also be competing to unlock new content in their regions via special Portkeys that lead to Dragon Eggs. If each region unlocks enough dragon eggs, those dragons will show up on their area!   

If attendees of the Fan Festival are successful, a special Day of the Dragons event will take place on September 7. During this 3-hour period, each region will be visited by a Dragon not typically found in the area. The exact type of Dragon will depend on which type of Dragon Egg was collected the most in that specific region during the Global Challenge. For example, if players in Asia collect more Antipodean Opaleye Dragon eggs than any other type during the Global Challenge, they will encounter Antipodean Opaleye Oddities for the 3-hour event and receive bonus XP for all Dragons returned during the Day of the Dragons!
