Azkaban chapters 5-8 released on Pottermore

For those of us who have been waiting ages for more Pottermore updates, we finally have more chapters to explore.

We are excited to announce that the next instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is now ready to explore. In this instalment you will witness a re-enactment of the beheading of Nearly Headless Nick, learn about the ancient wizarding game of Gobstones, pick up sweets in Honeydukes and see the ‘most haunted dwelling in Britain’ – the Shrieking Shack.

For the first time, some of the new Moments have been released with accompanying audio book snippets for our UK, US and German users. We have also introduced a new spoiler alert feature on selected exclusive entries from J.K. Rowling. If you are about to read anything that may give away storylines or information from beyond that particular Moment on Pottermore.com, an alert will appear. You then have the choice to continue reading or to navigate away and come back at a later time so as not to spoil your own journey through the stories. You can disable the spoiler warning any time it appears and manage your spoiler settings in Account Settings.

For those of you who took part in our Teaser Questions, we are keeping the answers a secret for a few more days. We wanted to give you time to explore the new Moments and look or listen out for the answers yourselves. Share your discoveries on our Facebook page if you have an account; or on Twitter using the hashtag#pmteasers.

Pottermore expands with customisable experience on Playstation 3

Some Potterheads may have been disappointed that Pottermore didn’t include more personalized features. Where are our customisable avatars? Why can’t I walk around Diagon Alley and ride the Hogwarts Express? they might have asked. In case you were one of those people, I’ve got news for you.

We have an exciting announcement about a new way to experience Pottermore, and we wanted you to be amongst the first to know that from April 2013 Pottermore will be available on PlayStation Home.

Working closely with Sony, we’ve brought to life a selection of beautifully illustrated Moments from Pottermore.com for users to explore in 3D for the first time with a customisable avatar.

PlayStation Home is the free 3D gaming community for Sony’s PlayStation 3, where gamers play and socialise with their friends around the world and our latest innovation enables users to actually step inside Diagon Alley™ and the Hogwarts™ Express, as well as discover four exclusive new mini-games.

As a Pottermore.com user, you can also link your account with your PSN ID to gain access to extra content and spaces.
