The second Harry Potter video game from Portkey Games has been announced, and it’s a big one for those who’ve been seeking their Hogwarts letter!
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is a forthcoming mobile game by Warner Brothers and Jam City that’ll let you become a new Hogwarts student and master all seven years at the school. It’s the first time a single video game is offering this type of opportunity, and it’s due out in the spring!
The new game is being billed as a RPG that lets you “choose your path.” Fans will “live the dream of becoming a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry by creating their own character and progressing through their years at Hogwarts,” a press release states.
“Along the way players will participate in all of the magical classes and activities they have come to love – like Defence Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Duelling Club, and more. Most of the iconic professors from the Harry Potter stories reprise their roles in the game.”
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the game is set in the 1980s so as to not get in the way of Harry’s timeline. They selected the ’80s time period after being inspired by the recent success of Stranger Things and revivals of Star Trek and Star Wars.
Updates will continue to be released for the game long after it’s planned Spring 2018 launch so as to keep the game fresh. “The game will be free to play with in-app purchases that will enhance the experience. It is being designed so that updates will refresh the game play — which will include learning to cast spells and becoming a more powerful wizard,” THR says.
No photos have been released at this time, but we’re hoping for a 3D game that truly lets us feel like we’re at our favorite school.
