Broomstick League Is Pretty Much the Love Child of Harry Potter and Rocket League (VIDEO)
It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen video game quidditch. The fictional popular sport from the Harry Potter series has received its own videogame, Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup, in 2003, representation in various movie-based Potter games, and even has spawned its own real-life sport on many college campuses. Despite new Wizarding World movies being released, there seems to be a dearth of Quidditch based content this decade. Luckily Broomstick League is here to do what WB won’t.
Broomstick League, as its name implies, seeks to combine a facsimile of Quidditch and Rocket League. This combination on paper might sound a little odd, but in motion, it looks pretty great! Check out the announce trailer right here.
While the threads of both Rocket League and Quidditch are there, there are a few key differences in Broomstick League. Teams won’t have 3 chasers, 2 bludgers, or a seeker; there are only 43players per team here. Players will need to toss a ball back and forth, out of reach of the defending team, and toss it into one goal instead of the three found in traditional Quidditch. Defenders will be able to cast spells like teleportation to put themselves in the best defensive position possible or blast the ball away from the offense’s hands. There will be customization options as well allowing you to unlock new broomsticks, wands, and other cosmetic items for players to equip. Broomstick League is scheduled to release on PC in Q1 of 2020.
