The storyline is expected to be worthy of the immersive lore that Harry Potter books have created. The official synopsis reads that this Hogwarts Experience is based in the 1800s, and the playable character holds the key to an ancient secret. This secret is dangerous enough to threaten and tear the wizarding world apart.
