A Harry Potter role play game just leaked and we're so here for it

If the Fantastic Beasts hype isn't enough to ebb your magical cravings, look no further.

Some footage from an upcoming Harry Potter video game has just leaked and WE'RE FROTHING!

According to a Reddit user, the footage was obtained from a US focus group where people were paid to watch a game demo and complete a survey. The focus group organisers were supposed to take participants phones away, but the Reddit user managed to hang on to theirs, record the footage and then leaked it online. Warner Bros have since had the post removed.

The Reddit user described the game as taking place in the 19th century, and gamers get to choose their own character who then enters the game as a 5th year Hogwarts student.

"Upon arrival, strange events begin to materialize in the Forbidden Forest and trouble begins to brew within the castle walls. Together with Professor Elezar Fig, you embark on a journey through both familiar and never before seen locations to bring to light the truth behind these mysterious occurrences."

"On your quest you will craft potions, master new spells, and discover fantastical beasts. You will battle Dark Wizards, Goblins, and other supernatural enemies and uncover the truth about your destiny - the Fate of the Wizarding World lies in your hands."

Apparently the game is being developed by Avalanche Software, owned by Warner Bros. A job posting for someone to work on a role playing game was reportedly posted last year by the company - coincidence? 

This better be true because WE ARE SO HYPED FOR THIS.
