Available now, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery players will encounter a mysterious evil that has unexplainably entered Hogwarts!  In this new special adventure, Tonks and her jackrabbit Patronus will help defend players from this dangerous threat and teach players the Patronus charm, one of the most powerful defensive charms in the Wizarding World.  Ultimately, each player will be able to summon their own unique Patronus, designated by both choice and player attribute levels. With the sidequest all but complete, players will need to unleash their Patronus to save Hogwarts!

Before the Patronus Special Adventure, players who have advanced to Year 1 Chapter 6 and beyond can partake in the full marks leaderboard event, where they can earn a special Patronus-related prize. There will also be a special limited Patronus bundle available in-game to players who have advanced through Year 1 Chapter 4 and beyond, plus an opportunity to learn the Obscuro Spell via Duelling Club.

“We love to bring true-to-canon content from the wizarding world into Hogwarts Mystery, and the Patronus has been one of those iconic features that our fans have been asking about for a long time,” said Michael Brozman, Sr. Director of Product at Jam City. “Our hope is that the Patronus will spark a lot of excitement for our fans, delivering a thrilling adventure that heightens their experience at Hogwarts.”

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Announces the Celestial Ball
Posted by Megs

Beginning today, February 8th, players of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery can participate in the social – and chic – event of the season at Hogwarts, The Celestial Ball.

“Life at Hogwarts is filled with classes, studies, extra-curricular activities – but also social events and celebrations,” said Michael Brozman, Sr. Director of Product at Jam City. “We’re thrilled to introduce the Celestial Ball time-limited sidequest this February, giving players the opportunity to explore the excitement, choices and camaraderie of a Hogwarts school dance.”

This February, in the mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Hogwarts is abuzz with the social event of the season – the Celestial Ball! In this special adventure, fourth-year players and above can participate in the after-class planning and preparations for this first formal dance. Maneuvering a host of choices and social situations, players will partner with their peers in an effort to make the event a resounding, resplendent success!


In the quest, players will help other Hogwarts classmates with their own Celestial Ball aspirations. For example, the popular Hufflepuff Penny hopes to head the Decorating Committee, but the devious duo of Merula and Ismelda have set their sights on sabotage. Meanwhile, introverted classmates like Rowan require makeover tips and pep talks, to put their best foot forward at the dance.

Before the grand event, players can visit the Great Hall to mingle with classmates like Tulip, Barnaby, Rowan, Ben, Merula, Penny and others, and choose a friend to invite to the ball. With the sidequest all but complete, players will be able to choose their own outfit for the ball from a selection of looks curated by fashion-forward Ravenclaw, Andre.

Hogwarts Mystery Mobile Game Celebrates the Dark Arts in October
Posted by Megs

To celebrate October and the changing seasons, mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is celebrating the Dark Arts! “This October, we’re exploring the darker side of Hogwarts,” said Josh Yguado, Jam City President and COO. “From the Hallowe’en feast in the Great Hall, to our in-game events and side quests, players will have the chance to experience a full month of October festivities, ranging from fun to fearsome.”

From the press release:

In the hit mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery , players are exposed to the darker side of the Wizarding World, facing many dangers during their Hogwarts education. While attending classes, players delve into an unfolding investigation of their brother’s disappearance, leading them to the mysteries of the Cursed Vaults. From facing treacherous Boggarts in Year Three, to exploring the perils of the Forbidden
Forest in Year Four, the Dark Arts are present amidst the safety of classes and celebrations at the venerable school.

October begins in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery with festive flair as students, staff and spectres prepare for the Hallowe’en feast. The Great Hall is now adorned with pumpkins and spooky decor, and the ghosts of Hogwarts – Nearly Headless Nick, the Fat Friar, the Bloody Baron, and the Grey Lady – have assembled for this highly anticipated annual event. But a shadow falls on the proceedings as a seasonal side quest begins mid-month, introducing a sinister, time sensitive twist to the story. Players will need to utilize their full arsenal of defensive spells, from Hex-Deflection to the stunning spell Stupefy, as dark forces arrive on Hogwarts’ grounds upon the full moon.

As this seasonal sidequest takes hold, players can also put their defensive skills to the test in a special Duelling Club event. Using the Melofors Jinx, players will be able to temporarily transform their opponents’ heads into a pumpkin, bringing autumn flavor to this recurring in-game event.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Launches Year 5, New Characters, Classes & Adventures
Posted by Megs

Today, players can head back to school in the mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery with the commencement of Year 5 content in the game, beginning the most exciting year at Hogwarts yet, with a host of new mysteries to unravel. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first mobile game where players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. From the press release:

In Year 5, players return to Hogwarts for their most rigorous year of studies yet, and important milestones in the curriculum. Players that earned their prefect badge in Year 4 will take on the responsibilities of the role, while enjoying access to a new location in the game, the prefect’s bathroom. But all Year 5 students are faced with an even bigger test than earning the badge:  taking their Ordinary Wizarding Levels (O.W.L.) exams.

As Year 5 unfolds, players will head into new territory – and mischief – exploring decidedly dodgy areas like Knockturn Alley. Back on school grounds, players will learn from new professors like the lauded, but legendarily long-winded History of Magic Professor, Cuthbert Binns and the identity of the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor will be revealed. Outside of classes, players will cross paths with more members of the Weasley clan and other familiar characters from the Wizarding World.

Quote:    “Year 5 is a pivotal year for any student at Hogwarts, with the O.W.L. exams looming, new professors to navigate, and for some, a prefect badge on their robes,” said Amanda Heaton, Executive Producer at Jam City. “We wanted to reflect the rigors of this year in the mobile game, balanced of course, with the core extra-curricular activity at Hogwarts: unraveling mysterious with your school mates. Year 5 brings the most robust year of content yet to the game, and we’re excited for players to start this new chapter.”
