Now through Sept. 1, 2020, players can take part in a variety of magical challenges that will allow them to earn in-game medals modeled after the animated film’s lead characters, Ian and Barley Lightfoot, a pair of teenage elf brothers who set off on an ambitious quest to reunite with their father and rediscover the magic that once existed in their world.
