As expected after the end of the recent mohawk cosmetic event, Jam City has started yet another in-game event for Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery fans to complete. Like some of the other recent events, this latest event is a bit shorter than usual, with players having about three days left to complete it at the time of this writing.
The latest event in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is called "Hot Off the Presses!" and it's themed after Rita Skeeter, the shady journalist who has been a part of multiple storylines in the game in the past. By successfully completing the event, players will unlock a new pink and green outfit styled like the clothes Rita Skeeter is usually wearing.
The method in which players complete the Hot Off the Presses! event should be familiar to anyone who has participated in a Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery limited-time event in the past. Basically, players have to complete classes and earn full stars in those classes, which will translate the stars into crests. The crests will fill up a meter, and upon hitting certain milestones, players will get rewards. The rewards players can earn in the Hot Off the Presses! event are as follows:
- 100 coins (10 crests)
- 500 coins (20 crests)
- 5 gems (35 crests)
- Rita Skeeter outfit (50 crests)
The addition of the Rita Skeeter event to Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery appears to have another benefit as well. While it's unclear how widespread this problem was, some players who reached the end of Year 5 Chapter 2 weren't able to complete the last objective for the chapter. However, this problem appears to have been rectified since the Rita Skeeter event went live.
In the meantime, taking a glance at the game's subreddit shows that there are some players who are getting sick of the constant clothing events, and want Jam City to try something new. Whether or not Jam City actually decides to do something different for the next event remains to be seen, but the most likely scenario seems to be that next week will bring yet another in-game event where the goal is to unlock new threads.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is out now for iOS and Android mobile devices.
