Minecraft Harry Potter Project Witchcraft and Wizardry Out Now

The amazing Minecraft fan project is finally available for download.

Minecraft mod-team The Floo Network released their massive Harry Potter-meets-Minecraft creation, "Witchcraft and Wizardry," over the weekend. It's a project years in the making and basically creates an entire Harry Potter game inside Mincraft Java. It's also pretty darn awesome.

Witchcraft and Wizardry takes pieces from throughout the Potterverse, but doesn't follow a specific storyline. You'll complete quests and explore the wizarding world's mysteries however you like.

There are puzzles to solve, items to collect, and tons of fantastic-looking Potter places to explore. These range from the Hogwarts grounds and castle to deadly forests, and even a Diagon Alley complete with shops.

You'll fly about on brooms, cast spells, and potentially meet up with your favorite characters from the series as well. As Rock, Paper, Shotgun noted when it first reported on the release, it's like a Minecraft version of those old Harry Potter games released when the films were first big. And that's no bad thing.

Just note that if you're interested, Witchcraft and Wizardry only runs on Minecraft Java version 1.13.2.

You can check out the details and download on Planet Minecraft. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Minecraft news as it develops.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
