Broomstick League gets a closed beta this weekend

The upcoming fast-paced high-flying Quidditch-like sports game Broomstick League is getting a closed beta this weekend.

In Broomstick League, players take to the sky to compete against other would-be wizards. Players divide into teams and zoom across large arenas atop their broomsticks in an effort to grab the magical orb, outmaneuver other players, and score a goal.

Basically, Broomstick League wants to be the Rocket League of Quidditch. That’s fine by me, considering the only similar concept that I’m aware of is Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup. That game was released way back in 2003 on GameCube, PS2, and Xbox.

The closed beta will be taking place this weekend. It starts Saturday, December 7 at 1 PM Eastern and ends on Sunday, December 8 at 10:00 PM Eastern. Players can sign up for a chance to play the beta at broomstickleague.com.
