Jam City is proud to announce that the mobile Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery game has launched into Year 5, which will offer up a few new challenges and game modes for players. Full details on the Year 5 content for the game can be found after the break.

If you care to watch, Jam City put out one of the crappiest trailers for a game with a license of this importance I’ve ever seen, which is embedded above. I mean it’s embarrassing that this thing was approved for distribution on any platform. It’s 12-seconds long, has a blown out resolution look, and is completely nonsensical. At this point you have to check it out just to see how peculiar it truly is.

About Year 5

Today, players head back to school with the commencement of Year 5 content in the game, beginning the most exciting year at Hogwarts yet, with a host of new mysteries to unravel.

In Year 5, players return to Hogwarts for their most rigorous year of studies yet, and important milestones in the curriculum. Players that earned their prefect badge in Year 4 will take on the responsibilities of the role, while enjoying access to a new location in the game, the prefect’s bathroom. But all Year 5 students are faced with an even bigger test than earning the badge:  taking their Ordinary Wizarding Levels (O.W.L.) exams.

As Year 5 unfolds, players will head into new territory – and mischief – exploring decidedly dodgy areas like Knockturn Alley. Back on school grounds, players will learn from new professors like the lauded, but legendarily long-winded History of Magic Professor, Cuthbert Binns and the identity of the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor will be revealed. Outside of classes, players will cross paths with more members of the Weasley clan and other familiar characters from the Wizarding World.
