While the announcement wasn’t so much a press release as it was the game appearing on several sites for pre-order, it none the less indicates that USAoploy will be releasing a Harry Potter deck building game later this year. Not much information has been released about it other than the following description of the game;
The forces of evil are threatening to overrun HOGWARTS’ castle in this new cooperative game! It’s up to four students to ensure the safety of the school by defeating villains and consolidating their defenses. Players take on the role of a HOGWARTS student; Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville, each with his or her own personal deck of cards which is used to acquire resources.
By gaining influence, players add more cards to their deck in the form of iconic characters, spells, and magical items. Other cards allow them to regain health or to fight against villains, keeping them from gaining power. The villains set back players with their attacks and Dark Arts. Only by working together will players be able to defeat all of the villains, securing the castle from the forces of evil.
This is no doubt exciting for Harry Potter fans and hopefully more information will be released as we approach the September 2016 release date.
