Fans of Harry Potter all over the world are excited to hear that the new role-playing mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, is coming in 2018. This new game gives you the opportunity to experience life as a Hogwarts student! You’ll get to attend classes, learn spells, make friends (and enemies) and live your very own Hogwarts life.

The mobile game – part of the new label Portkey Games, from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment – will invite you to join Hogwarts in the 1980s, and will feature many of your favourite things from the Harry Potter stories. This is all before Harry Potter’s time at the school but you may recognise a few former students and staff – from Nymphadora Tonks to Bill Weasley to Professor McGonagall.

You’ll get to make your own student avatar and make decisions that will impact your story. As you make your way through the game your Hogwarts education, your magical skills and relationships with other characters will determine your path.

The latest sneak peek of the game which debuted last weekend shows some of the gameplay you can expect, such as creating your very own student, learning spells in Hogwarts classes, and a few appearances from familiar characters. These range from Professor Snape to Mr Ollivander – we even spotted Fang near the Whomping Willow.

The game will be coming out in the later half of 2018 but keep your eye on  FacebookTwitterInstagram for more updates and pre-register on the website.
