Sony has unveiled its most significant game addition to PlayStation Plus for 2024. The year has already been impressive with free games on PS Plus.

Titles like "A Plague Tale: Requiem," "Foamstars," "EA Sports FC 24," "Immortals of Aveum," "Ghostrunner 2," and "Sifu" have delighted subscribers in the first half of the year. However, the upcoming addition in September is set to outshine them all.

Exciting New Addition: Harry Potter Quidditch Champions

Recently, Sony announced that "Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions" will join PlayStation Plus as a day-one addition.

WB Games had previously teased this new multiplayer Quidditch title, set in the magical Harry Potter universe.

The game will finally launch on September 3rd, 2024, and its inclusion in PS Plus is expected to be a game-changer.

The significance of "Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions" being part of PS Plus is underscored by the success of "Hogwarts Legacy."

The Legacy of Hogwarts Legacy

"Hogwarts Legacy," a 2023 action RPG by Avalanche Software and published by Warner Bros. Games, laid the groundwork for these new Harry Potter games.

It is set a century before the events of the Harry Potter novels.

Players control a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They learn various magical abilities and explore an ancient secret within the wizarding world.

After being acquired by Warner Bros. in 2017, "Hogwarts Legacy" marked Avalanche Software’s first project independent of Disney Interactive Studios.

Development started in 2018, and even though gameplay footage leaked early, the game’s unique setting allowed players to experience a fresh and immersive narrative distinct from the established Wizarding World characters.

Conclusion

Sony’s addition of "Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions" to PlayStation Plus is a strategic move that leverages the massive popularity of the Harry Potter universe, following the success of "Hogwarts Legacy."

Subscribers can look forward to an engaging and immersive Quidditch experience that promises to deliver both solo and multiplayer excitement.

As this game launches on September 3rd, it is set to be a highlight of 2024 for PlayStation Plus members.
