The Hogwarts Express will be arriving in April to bring you Harry Potter fans on PlayStation Home to Pottermore; designed based on the beautifully illustrated moments from Pottermore.com.
Pottermore looks to provide one of the most extensive PS Home experiences with more than just the one space to socialise with thousands of fellow fans. These additional spaces, as well as further interactive content, will be available to you for linking your PSN ID with your Pottermore.com account. CEO of Pottermore Charlie Redmayne commented on the collaboration with Sony, saying: “Pottermore reaches across multiple digital platforms, and Sony’s partnership has allowed us to forge this exciting connection with PlayStation Home, creating the most immersive experience possible within that space and giving users wonderful new ways to explore locations from the Harry Potter stories”.
The initial release will allow users to visit Diagon Alley and board the Hogwarts Express. Four themed mini-games will be playable, including Book Herding, a Pottermore quiz, the ability to collect and share Pottermore Trading Cards and the combative Wizard’s Duel. Also, a companion from a selection of 14 owls, cats and toads will be available for purchase. Finally, avatars can be made over with a wide variety of clothing options, from uniforms and house robes to more casual wizard outfits.
