Last week a new Harry Potter site went live called Pottermore that had no explanation behind it. Some speculate that it’ll be a Harry Potter encyclopedia. Others theorize that it will be Harry Potter MMORPG that would allow Potter fans to interact online with each other, assuming magical characters. But today J.K. Rowling has revealed in the video below the real deal about Pottermore.
Pottermore is described as an online version of the Potter world and the stories from the books, but with users able to shape certain parts of it. On top of that it will form the exclusive home of Harry Potter audio books and e-book versions of all the books from the series.
Pottermore won’t launch until October, but on July 31 it will be opened up to a select few in a sort of beta phase to work out the kinks.
Harry Potter fans should definitely keep an eye on Pottermore.com for more details.
