English players of Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery see wildly different pricing for the game’s microtransactions.
This is most likely a response to the backlash the game received upon release for its aggressive microtransaction push.
When Warner Bros. Interactive announced the mobile game Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery, we knew it would likely be free-to-play and feature some form of microtransactions.
However, we had no idea how brazen the game would be in requiring real-life money to advance the game’s plot.
Perhaps in response to the backlash, including from here at Android Authority, it appears that Warner Bros. Interactive is testing out different pricing structures for the gems you need to buy in Hogwarts Mystery.
So far, we have anecdotal data from users in England, via Eurogamer, who are reporting much different pricing for the same products.
