Where is the Game Set?

Players will be transported to the Wizarding World that existed in the 1800s. Fans of Harry Potter will be able to explore familiar places such as Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, the Forbidden Forest, as well as many more places to discover.

Here’s a behind the scenes look detailing the creation of the game and the world:

What is There to Do?

Fans will be able to experience life as a student at Hogwarts whilst uncovering the mysteries hidden throughout the land. Players will be able to attend their favourite classes: Charms, Defence Against the Dark Arts, Herbology, and Potions. In these classes you will not only get to meet fellow withes and wizards, they will learn from their professors, new potions, grow magical plants and so much more that is yet to be seen. You will apparently be able to develop friendships with some students who will eventually become companions and help players as they explore the world and develop their abilities.

Combat within the game appears to be adaptable to the player as you will supposedly be able to form a combat style special to you. These skills will likely prove valuable as you engage with enemies, whether it be the rumoured goblin rebellion or creatures encountered in the wild.

It is also confirmed that players will be able to explore the world using broomsticks, a skill that can be mastered in flying classes or broom races, as well as players will be able to find, tame, mount and travel around on magical beasts.

While exploring the Wizarding World players will have the opportunity to complete feats of mental ability as well as physical: completing puzzles, traversing secret passages and dungeons. Whilst making your way through these challenges you will have the opportunity to upgrade magical gear, earn experience to level abilities and specialise into offensive and defensive play styles.

Arguably the most important aspect of the whole game to any true Harry Potter fan: will you be able to choose your Hogwarts house? Thankfully it has been confirmed that you are able to choose your Hogwarts house from the start of the game!
