As kids are headed back to school in the real world, perhaps now's the time to do the same in the digital world since Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery is launching its Year 5 update right now.

The update brings new characters to meet, classes to take, locations to explore, but most importantly, Ordinary Wizarding Level (O.W.L.) exams to scrutinise over. You'll come across familiar faces from the Weasley clan, as well as, the chance to wander around the unruly streets of Knockturn Alley.

To say that we were disappointed when the game was first released would be an understatement. Things being locked behind paywalls was quite frustrating and it really prevented us from enjoying some of the better aspects to be found, but you should read Emily's full review for all the details.

There have been a few updates since then so maybe some of these issues have been adjusted, this Year 5 content adds a whole bunch of stuff so it might just breathe some new life into the halls of Hogwarts.

You can download Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery along with its Year 5 content for free right now on both iOS and Android.
