Hogwarts Mystery Mobile Game Introduces Duelling Club
Posted by Megs

Wands at the ready! Players of the mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery have learned important defensive spells in their first few years at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. From Expelliarmus, the disarming charm, to Flipendo, the Knockback Jinx, players have studied a selection of spells that are vital for duelling victory.

Today, players can put their spellcasting prowess to good use in the first of a series of multiplayer limited time events in the game, the Duelling Club. The first official Duelling Club event starts today for Facebook Connected players and runs through July 15th, 2018.

During this first event, players will receive three tickets, each granting them admission to participate in a duel. A worthy opponent will be randomly selected from other Facebook Connect users. The defeated player will forfeit one of their tickets, while the victor retains their ticket—and reaps a special reward after each and every win.

Additional Duelling Club events will take place in the game through the summer months.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery Introduces New Feature!
Posted by Megs

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, Portkey Games’ new mobile game, gives players the opportunity to create a character, and attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a student, attending classes, making friends, earning House Points, and of course, solving mysteries! The game is set in the 1980s, seven years before Harry Potter’s first day at Hogwarts. Players will explore the halls and grounds of the school, and meet both new characters — like your Slytherin nemesis in the game, Merula – and beloved characters from the books and films like Dumbledore, Snape, Flitwick, McGonagall, Hagrid and many more.

Today they’re introducing a new feature to the game: pets!

From the adorable boarhound puppy, Fang, to the feisty but devoted feline, Mrs. Norris, pets are a beloved part of life at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Starting today, players of the mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, can have critters of their own! Selecting between the popular picks of Owl, Rat, Cat and Toad, players can now choose a pet to join them in their adventures as a student at Hogwarts.

Players can own up to four pets in the game, one of each kind, which will lounge and nap in their house dormitory. Equipping one animal friend at time, a pet can join players at locations around Hogwarts and its grounds. In addition to companionship, pets provide players with an energy boost when they’re awoken from slumber.

With today’s addition, players can join the likes of pet-loving Hagrid and Mr. Filch, gaining a friendly animal friend to join them in their exploration of Hogwarts and their new dormitories.

First Trailer for New Mobile Game ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery’
Posted by Megs

Another new Harry Potter mobile game has been announced by Pottermore this morning. This new game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, gives you the opportunity to experience life as a Hogwarts student! You can pre-register to play on the official website! You can also follow on Facebook and Twitter for updates.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. The game will launch under Portkey Games, a new label dedicated to creating experiences inspired by the magic and adventures of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World.

According to Pottermore:

The mobile game – part of the new label Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment – will invite you to join Hogwarts in the 1980s, and will feature many of your favourite things from the Harry Potter stories. These include spells, classes, characters and much more. Although at this point Harry wouldn’t have been old enough to be at the school himself, we think you may recognise a few former students and staff – from Nymphadora Tonks to Bill Weasley to Professor McGonagall.

The role-playing experience will invite you to create your own personalised student avatar, and make key decisions that will impact your story. The trailer wisely reminds us of Dumbledore’s words: ‘It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.’

As the game continues, so will your Hogwarts education, your magical skills and relationships with other characters, so make sure to make every decision count. In other words – don’t choose a Crabbe and Goyle-style path, eh?

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be available via the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Appstore in 2018.
