One of the biggest franchises in the world, Harry Potter, just got its second game this year. Following the success of Hogwarts Legacy, another game set in the wizarding world is now available for Potterheads, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened.
It’s true that the game is only available in a few countries and isn’t the full version, but it’s still worth checking out, especially if you’re a fan of the universe. Harry Potter: Magic Awakened has been in development for several years with several leading studios, including Portkey Games, Netease, Warner Bros. Games, and EnvoyGames.
Unlike Hogwarts Legacy, Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is a CCG (Trading Card Game) and Massively Multiplayer (MMO) wizard dueling game with strategic RPG (role-playing game) elements. This may sound presumptuous, but it’s not.
The developers announced earlier today that the game would be entering an “early launch,” meaning the game will be released in a limited number of regions to test gameplay and other technical specifications ahead of a global release.
Being an MMO, it is essential to add that all existing servers will remain open, and new countries will be added over time. The game is currently available in the following countries: Austria, Denmark, Finland, Israel, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, and Switzerland (unfortunately, not yet available in the US).
Those planning to install and play this version of the game should make sure to update to the latest version. In addition, the developer recommends that all players protect their game progress by linking their account to a Warner Bros. Game Account. Those who do so will also win a one-time special prize.
If you don’t live in one of the countries where the game has just been live, you can still pre-register on the game’s official website to win exclusive map packs and many other prizes. Harry Potter: Magic Awakened is now available for free on the Google Play Store and will be available on the App Store soon.
