Hogwarts Legacy fans rejoice: Quidditch Champions officially announced

Hogwarts Legacy fans rejoice: Quidditch Champions officially announced

Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions will allow players to team up with friends and play Quidditch online.

Although Hogwarts Legacy quickly proved to be a hit with the majority of Harry Potter fans, it’s safe to say that there was one feature in particular (or rather, the lack thereof) that players were incredibly disappointed about.

I’m of course talking about the complete omission of Quidditch. In the Harry Potter books and movies, the broom-based sport played a prominent role in the life of every Hogwarts student, and before we knew much about Hogwarts Legacy, it seemed like a pretty safe bet that a Quidditch mode would be included, but no. The in-game reason for this is that no one is allowed to play due to an “unfortunate injury” that occurred during the final match of the previous season.

Take a look at Hogwarts Legacy’s funniest mod starring PS1 Hagrid below.

Now though, the good news is that Warner Bros. Games is finally making Quidditch playable. The bad news is that it’s not in Hogwarts Legacy.

Meet Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions, a standalone, competitive multiplayer game releasing for PC and consoles. According to a blog post on the Wizarding World website, “it engages players in the sport of Quidditch and other broomstick adventures alongside friends in a competitive setting”. Take a look at the (admittedly brief) teaser below.

Very little else has been revealed about the game at this point - there’s no planned release date, and no specific console platforms have been confirmed. However, according to the official FAQ page, the title has been in development for “several years” already by Unbroken Studios. Like Hogwarts Legacy, players will be able to create and customise their own character to play as.

As for the gameplay, you’ll need a constant internet connection in order to play. Players will be able to either join matches solo, or alternatively team up with their friends or random people online.

What’s more, playtests for Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions are open right now - fans are encouraged to sign up here if they want to be in with a chance of checking the game out early.
