Warner Bros. Games announces new trading card game

Harry Potter: Die Magie erwacht

02/11/2022 - Warner Bros. Games and NetEase, Inc. today announced that Harry Potter: Magic Awakens will be released worldwide in 2022. This is a free-to-play collectible card and MMO game centered around wizard duels, integrating strategic role-playing into the gameplay.

Published and developed in collaboration between Warner Bros. Games and NetEase Games, Harry Potter: Magic Awakens will be released worldwide for iOS and Android later this year. The title is part of Portkey Games, the gaming brand dedicated to creating video game and mobile experiences for the wizarding world that put players at the center of their own adventures. Harry Potter: Magic Awakens is a multiplayer game centered around wizard duels. It also features role-playing elements with in-depth strategic gameplay, as well as a unique graphic style.

Both companies collaborated on all aspects of development to ensure an authentic representation of the wizarding world from early concept and art designs to the overall story and gameplay system. Following its September 2021 release in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, Harry Potter: Magic Awakens could become the biggest mobile release in 2021, reaching the top of local app stores and surpassing all new mobile titles released worldwide in terms of revenue during its first four months, according to analytics platforms such as Sensor Tower. Pre-registrations and closed beta testing will also begin later this year for all regions outside of Asia.

"With Harry Potter: Magic Awakens, we collaborated with NetEase Games to create a robust multiplayer experience set in the wizarding world, and we are incredibly excited that the game will now soon be released worldwide," said David Haddad, president of Warner Bros. Games. "Harry Potter: Magic Awakens leverages the superior development and publishing capabilities of both NetEase Games and Warner Bros. Games to deliver an immersive gameplay experience for gamers, with impressive features, a deep collectible card system and a beautifully unique graphic style."

"Harry Potter: Magic Awakens has been a huge success with our current players and fan feedback has been exceptional so far," said William Ding, founder and CEO of NetEase, Inc. "We are excited to now bring this title to our global audience and we think that fans of one of the biggest brands in the entire world will be delighted to embark on a new adventure and enjoy an immersive story that will take them on a wonderful journey through the wizarding world, where the possibilities are truly limitless thanks to magic."

In Harry Potter: Magic Awakens, players begin as young witches and wizards who have just received their acceptance letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Fans can customize their own character and go through all the major steps of a magical education, including shopping for school supplies in Angular Alley, donning the talking hat to be sorted into a house, and competing in the Dueling Club.

Witches and wizards can immerse themselves in a compelling new story, meeting many familiar faces from the original Harry Potter series as well as a large cast of new characters. As players progress through the game, they learn spells that can be performed in the form of cards. They must accumulate magical knowledge to master these to spells, develop unique strategies and discover incredible combinations, because it is very important to know when it is best to perform which spell. On their very own wizarding journey, they face increasingly difficult challenges, compete against other game ends, and must learn to master magic.

From today, players from Europe can pre-register for Harry Potter: Magic Awakens on Google Play or the game`s official website to receive exclusive in-game rewards once the title is released. This will allow additional rewards such as in-game currency, cosmetic items, and a Niffler card to be unlocked after passing certain pre-registration classes.
