Blue Isle Studios have announced that their massive online sandbox RPG, Citadel: Forged With Fire, is finding inspiration from the wildly popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter with their new Broomstick League update coming on March 7th. One of the most striking elements in whole magical world of Harry Potter is the popular wizard sport known as Quidditch; the soccer-style game played on broomsticks. This Broomstick League update to Citadel: Forged With Fire introduces a new sport to the world that shares quite a few similarities with the magical franchise.
Broomstick League takes teams of up to 5 players each and transports them to a soccer/football-style field. Each team flies about on broomsticks and implements new passing and shooting mechanics to score a goal in either a large main net for 1 point or on smaller horizontal nets for 2 points. There are currently no Golden Snitch auto-win equivalents in the Citadel world, so practice those trick shots if you want to attain those bragging rights.
Since Citadel is an open world sandbox, player are able to build their own stadiums to their liking and field their own teams. This opens up the possibilities for players arranging their own in-universe divisions and leagues for some interesting gameplay dynamics. The brooms and armor used during games of broomstick league are also fully equipable in the main game; allowing you to rep your broomstick team in quests. For Harry Potter heads that have been craving a quidditch experience since the middle of the road Harry Potter Quidditch World Cup game came out in 2003, Citadel: Forged With Fire offers an experience you can’t get anywhere else.
The Broomstick League update hits Citadel: Forged With Fire on Steam Early Access on March 7th. Citadel: Forged With Fire is also currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
