The great calamity is eating away at the world and, after choosing your class, you will have to go in search of the origin of this rampant evil and take the opportunity to find the Grail if you decide to dig deep into the whole of Brittany.

Take advantage of soul stones to vary your skills and take part in a variety of social activities in guilds or by marrying a 40-year-old man as a sexy elementalist. Honor of Heirs is available for free on Android and iOS and offers play-to-earn features in partnership with Wemix.

In total, you can cast more than 50 spells, such as Lumos to your light bulbs, Silencio to your speakers or Expecto Patronum to make your Patronus appear on your TV.

With two wands, it will also be possible to duel. Despite the availability of pre-orders for 150 dollars, it will be complicated to put it under the Christmas tree, since sales are limited to the United Kingdom and the United States for the moment.

To discover the different models of Magic Caster Wand, but also more information on other types of Harry Potter wands and tips on wand stands, go to our complete article on the Harry Potter wand connected.

Gameplay of the match-3 Oh My Anne! by Neowiz

Just as colorful as the spells Harry Potter, but much more relaxing than a duel of Expelliarmus, the match-3 Oh My Anne! finally gives some news. Created by Korean developer Neowiz, this title seems to juggle match-3 and emotional storytelling, all led by the character Anne.

Wild Rift Esports to focus solely on Asia

Even though it was Thanksgiving this week for some of the world, we don't thank Riot Games for its announcement about the future of Wild Rift. The American video game developer and publisher has finally decided to end all activities esport for Wild Rift outside the Asian region.

According to the press release on the game's website, communities in other regions were not sufficiently engaged this year. "It should be given time to develop organically."

Farewell to other major regions for Wild Rift and as you might expect, the LoL mobile community in the rest of the world has mostly pointed to Riot Games to tell them that strengthening their growth efforts would have been more interesting than standing up other regions for the 2023 season.

Activision reveals gameplay and multiplayer for Warzone mobile

As the competition between mobile FPS's intensifies, Warzone Mobile steps forward with its multiplayer mode. Via a video from youtuber Bobby Plays and leaks, we've seen gameplay from Activision's Battle Royale several times. Gameplay-wise, the experience has most of the Call of Duty feel to it, although there is still work to be done on graphics and fluidity before May 2023.

For now, team deathmatch and domination are the only two modes available. We also know that player progression in Warzone Mobile will be tied to your Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 account, so be sure to pre-register on Android and iOS before release!

Hungry Shark becomes Ubisoft's most downloaded mobile game

Even if you don't know the name of this game, you must have seen at least one flash game in which you play as a shark that devours everything in its path. That's what Hungry Shark is all about.

After acquiring the license in 2013, Ubisoft released Hungry Shark World in 2016 and, together with the previous titles, the license finally surpassed one billion downloads. This fabulous result that also reveals the need for massacre in all of us makes it the most downloaded Ubisoft license on mobile.

A new rune awakening system in Undecember

After its release last month, Undecember continues to expand with a new rune awakening system that will further diversify your character build options. At level 30, each rune has three types of awakening: Origin, Truth and Source.
