Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is billed as “the first game in which players can create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.” We reported on the news of this new game last month along with the first trailer.
The game takes place during the 1980’s when Bill Weasley and Nymphadora Tonks were at Hogwarts, before Harry was born. Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery will be free and is slated for a spring 2018 release.
Today’s new trailer touts the games compelling features as choosing your house and learning from your favorite [Hogwarts] professors, creating lasting friendships, mastering powerful spells and potions, discovering new magical mysteries.
As noted by The Verge, there seems to be at least three different in-game currencies along with a timer. This could signal micro-transaction style gameplay.
