Warner Bros. Games and NetEase recently announced that Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, a Free-to-Play collectible card (CCG) and massively multiplayer (MMO) wizarding dueling game featuring a blend of strategy RPG, for worldwide launch in 2022. Starting now, players in the Americas, Europe and Oceania are invited to pre-register on Google Play. Pre-registrants will be notified upon the game’s release and receive exclusive in-game rewards at launch.
Co-developed and co-published by Warner Bros. Games and NetEase Games, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened will launch globally later this year for iOS and Android as the latest title under Portkey Games, the label dedicated to creating new mobile and videogame experiences inspired by the Wizarding World that place the player at the centre of their own adventure. Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is a multiplayer wizarding dueling game that offers an immersive RPG journey with deep strategy play that fulfills the fan fantasy – all beautifully rendered in a unique art style.
Merging the talents of two gaming and online entertainment powerhouses, both companies collaborated on every aspect of development to ensure an accurate representation of the wizarding world, from early concepting and art design, to the story’s plot and overall gameplay system.
Released in Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan regions in September 2021, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened was the biggest mobile game launch of 2021, topping local App Stores as the no. 1 game and surpassing all new globally released mobile titles in revenue in its first four months of the year, according to analytics platforms including Sensor Tower. Pre-registrations and closed beta tests will also begin for players residing in other Asia territories later this year.
