Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery mobile game explores the school before Harry's arrival

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing chris.higgins@allgamers.com or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

Made by Portkey Games, also working on Niantic's next AR hit.

A new mobile game, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, teases some early gameplay in its first trailer today.

Hogwarts Mystery is the first of two games by Warner Bros studio Portkey Games, also working on Wizards Unite, the next AR game from Pokemon Go creators Niantic.

In Hogwarts Mystery you attend the school in the period between Harry’s birth and his own first year, so your classmates will include Nymphadora Tonks and Bill Weasley. Of course some of the teaching staff have been around for decades so Snape, McGonagall and Hagrid will also be knocking about the grounds.

There’s no release date yet for Hogwarts Mystery, however developer Jam City has said there will be big plot arcs and smaller sidequests such as romantic and relationship storylines.
