Watch the trailer for the new 'Harry Potter' mobile game

Instead of being Harry, Ron or Hermione, you'll get to become your very own wizard in Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. While attending Hogwarts, players will take classes and learn from such beloved teachers as Hagrid, McGonagall and Snape. If you'd read Harry Potter as a young'un, chances are, you at least half-imagined getting your own letter to attend Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

In addition to Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery's release, the Harry Potter franchise is expected to have a significant 2018.

The free-to-play mobile game - set for release this spring - is being developed by mobile games studio Jam City will launch under Portkey Games, Warner Bros.

The recently announced mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, now has a teaser trailer with some gameplay mixed in.

As we wait for that game to be released, we can enjoy Jam City's Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery and get caught up with magic again.

New Fable game reportedly in development
A new report has emerged today supporting these rumors, with sources telling Eurogamer that a new Fable game is around the corner. Carter states that Playground has a lot of work ahead of them but they are definitely talented enough to "do a fantastic job".

Building your skills will come in handy as you solve mysteries and go on adventures.

Fans will get a sneak peak at the game at a Harry Potter celebration at the Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida, from January 26-28. Interactive Entertainment, you shouldn't expect to run into Harry Potter himself in the school's hallways. The video game is set between the time of Harry's birth and his first fated year in Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, placing this firmly in the '80s.

The game, which is part of a licensing deal with author J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros., allows wannabee wizards to create their own character and experience life as a Hogwarts student.

Players will join one of the four houses, and progress through the years as a student. The player's avatar can also have a pet of the player's choice, and will gain new skills and abilities throughout the RPG. Players will also make a number of major decisions that influence their characters and their stories.

However, there is a key difference between the two mobile titles of Harry Potter. The developers will host a panel detailing the game with behind the scenes information, and show it off in playable form as well.
