Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions announced

A magical sport will come to life this fall, when Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions is released. The game — which has been asked for for years — was announced today, during Summer Games Fest.

“Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions gives fans a chance to delve further into the Harry Potter world with the thrill of playing this beloved, fantastical sport,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. “The team has worked to capture the spirit of Quidditch, including iconic characters and never-before-seen areas of the wizarding world.”

The game will allow players to experience the rush of flying across fantastical fields, as a Beater, Chaser, Keeper or Seeker. A variety of modes will be on offer, including backyard battles in the Wesley Burrow and high-stakes showdowns at the Quidditch Cup. Of course, iconic characters will also make up these magical events.

Of course, both solo play and online multiplayer will be on offer.

“The team is excited to unveil Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions and showcase our take of this magical sport,” said, Paul Ohanian, Chief Executive Officer, Unbroken Studios. “We’ve worked hard to create a Quidditch game to play solo or with friends, that is an authentic representation of the fan-favorite sport.”

Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions will launch on September 3rd, for Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC. Those who own Hogwarts Legacy will receive a Bonus Legacy Pack.

When it launches, the game will set you back $29.99 (USD). That is, unless you subscribe to PlayStation Plus, because it will be free for all subscribers from September 3rd through to the 30th.
