The title is set between Harry Potter being born and first stepping foot in Hogwarts, and will see players "attend classes, learn magical skills, form friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character's story arc". So while Harry Potter will be alive in the Wizarding World at the same time as your own witch or wizard, he won't get in the way of your own experience. It will also be the first game released under Warner Bros.
Even though the films generally wrapped up a few years ago, the Harry Potter legacy remains quite a hot one with young and old fans alike - and soon, they'll have a new mobile game to celebrate said legacy. Announced via JK Rowling's Pottermore site in November, Portkey Games will "work with talented creators to build games that focus on player-generated stories, which will live alongside the magical universe created by JK Rowling".
That's why the upcoming mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is so exciting for longtime fans of the wizarding world. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.
Hogwarts Mystery takes place "in the time between Harry Potter's birth and his enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students", according to Jam City, the game's developer.
Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is expected to launch in spring 2018, but it's possible to pre-register on the official website to receive the latest information as it comes. So, will you have to buy a new phone to play the game?
Despite the last Harry Potter book being released back in 2007, the Harry Potter brand is still going strong with a huge dedicated fanbase. Building your skills will come in handy as you solve mysteries and go on adventures.
Playing the game, it'll be possible to go on quests, improve skills, unlock new locations and upgrade your avatar. The all-new encounter system will play an integral part in this, as decisions made will impact not only the quests but how other characters regard and interact with you. Warner Bros has announced that fans can attend the "A Celebration of Harry Potter" event at Universal Studios in Florida from 26-28 January.
