Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is transforming during October for Halloween, as the school prepares for the traditional feast with a host of new challenges, responsibilities and mysteries coming to the game. Students will be faced with seasonal side quests which continue the investigation into their brother's disappearance, an invasion of Dark Arts amidst the safety of classes as boggarts invade third year students games, and forth years explore the perils of the Forbidden Forest.
There is also a time-sensitive twist to the story as players will need to defend Hogwarts against dark forces upon the full moon, as a special Duelling Club event. During this time, players will be able to us the Melofors jinx to temporarily transform their opponents' heads into a pumpkin. “This October, we’re exploring the darker side of Hogwarts,” said Josh Yguado, Jam City President and COO. “From the Hallowe’en feast in the Great Hall, to our in-game events and side quests, players will have the chance to experience a full month of October festivities, ranging from fun to fearsome.”
