AUSTIN, Texas, November 30, 2022 – KingsIsle Entertainment and gamigo have launched the strangest world yet to Wizard101. Adding to the game’s impressive stable of worlds, Wizards can now journey to Novus, a bizarre world based on surrealist art, a gift to the peoples of the Spiral, a gift from… someTHING.

What is Novus? Where did it come from? Why is it here? The answers to these questions will shake the very foundations of the Spiral. Wizards must reach this place, explore it, master new forms of magic, and navigate the complex politics of the Spiral’s Empires to preserve Novus from those who would corrupt it.

“We came up with the core idea for Novus several worlds ago, but the narrative wasn’t ready for it. We’ve never done anything like this before. It’s esoteric, it’s existential, and has more political intrigue than worlds past. But as the story, the art, the world building and design started to come together, I knew it was going to be great.” said Sam Johnson, Narrative Lead at KingsIsle.

Novus comes complete with a new storyline, new areas to explore, friends and foes, and bosses in addition to new spells, items, and gear. Wizards will also be able to level up to 160 from the current 150.

Novus is part of Wizard101’s Fall Update which also introduces new spell masteries to help players win that next battle, diverse new Beastmoon event characters, exotic new upgrades to Castle Magic to maximize decorative abilities for player Castles, several new enhancements to guilds and other social systems, and much more.
