Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacywas announced at Wednesday's PlayStation 5 Showcase, but will also be available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
The game will take place in the 1800s, in a prequel to the books and the films.
According to the game's official website, you will "experience Hogwarts in the 1800s."
"Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart."
"You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic."
"Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic."
The game promises to let you "discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it."
Wednesday night also saw the price and release date of the PlayStation 5 confirmed.
