Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Los Angeles-based mobile games studio Jam City have teamed to produce “Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery,” a new game which unveiled its first trailer today ahead of a Spring release.
The project marks the first ‘Potter’ game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student. The role-playing adventure has you attending classes, learning magical skills, forming friendships or rivalries with other students, and make pivotal decisions that will influence their character’s story arc as they traverse their years at Hogwarts.
The game is set in the time between Harry Potter’s birth and his enrollment at Hogwarts, when Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley were students. The avatar customization system allows you to continually upgrade your avatar as you gain new expertise and magical skills. Building your skills will come in handy as you solve mysteries and go on adventures. As players improve their skills, they will unlock new locations, spells and other magical abilities.
The game features a new encounter system in which player’s decisions in both actions and narrative impact their quests, and how other characters regard and interact with them.
