I always found it odd that a school so blatantly celebrated a religious holiday, but I suppose Hogwarts is anything but a typical school. Christmas has always been a major part of the series, and it’s no different for mobile AR game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.
The Christmas Calamity Brilliant Event will consist of several events beginning on December 3, and features special scenes and memories from the Hogwarts Yule Ball, as well as helping Hagrid return lost magical creatures.
Here’s the official schedule of events:
Christmas Calamity Brilliant Event Part 1: December 3-10
- Relive the winter wonderland of the Hogwarts Yule Ball, including memories of couples like Hermione and Viktor, as well as Hagrid and Madame Maxime.
Christmas Calamity Brilliant Event Part 2: December 17-24
- Reflect on Yule Ball memories from Ron and his friends, including memories of Parvati and Harry, as well as Fred and Angelina.
In addition, Wizards Unite will have a Community Day on December 14. During the one-day event, players can find special Portkeys that will teleport to Hagrid’s Hut to unlock rare magical creatures. Developer Niantic is also teasing a 12 Tasks of Christmas Event, with details to follow in the coming days.
Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is free-to-play on iOS and Android.
