Harry Potter fans are in for a treat as Warner Bros. Games and NetEase have announced that Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, a free to play collectible card game and massive multiplayer duelling game with a pinch of RPG for good measure, is coming to the Americas, Europe and Oceania territories. Pre-registration is available now on Google Play and players will be able to start duelling later this year. Check out the trailer below to see the excitement in store…
In Harry Potter: Magic Awakened players start off their magical lives as a young wizard or witch who have just received their letters to Hogwarts and experience all the fun of shopping in Diagon Alley, the anticipation of finding your house with the Sorting Hat and joining the duelling club. Characters can be customised to the player’s preference for a truly magical experience.
Players will be able to follow a riveting story featuring characters from the original Harry Potter series as well as a host of new faces. As young witches and wizards progress they will learn spells and charms, in the form of cards, that they can then cast during increasingly challenging trials and duel other players. Winning isn’t straightforward and players will need to master spells and devise winning combinations and strategies.
“With Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, we have worked jointly with NetEase Games to create the most robust multiplayer experience set in the wizarding world and we are very excited to launch the game globally,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. “Harry Potter: Magic Awakened utilizes the best-in-class development and publishing capabilities of both NetEase Games and Warner Bros. Games to bring players a captivating gameplay experience with compelling features, an in-depth collectible card system and beautifully distinct art style.”
“Harry Potter: Magic Awakened has been a huge success with our current players and the fan reception has been extraordinary,” said William Ding, Founder and CEO of NetEase, Inc. “We are excited to open this title to a worldwide audience, and we believe fans of one of the world’s biggest brands will be delighted that they can embark on adventures and experience an immersive story through a marvelous journey in the wizarding world, with infinite possibilities empowered by magic.”
