25 years have passed since the first Harry Potter book was published. Since then, additional 6 books and 8 movies came out along with some videogame titles to add to the bunch. However, none of those titles could ever compare to a game that has yet to be published: Hogwarts legacy.
Now it’s the player’s turn to leave a unique footprint in the wizarding world. Hogwarts legacy is an action/RPG videogame developed by Avalanche. This studio is known for its work with Warner Bros and Disney. The game’s exact release date hasn’t been revealed, but the community expects it to happen in the summer of this year. It will be featured on various devices: Windows, Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and 5, Xbox 1, and X/S. So, grab your wands, and let’s board the Hogwarts Express!
The plot of Hogwarts Legacy
Now, your goal is entirely up to you. On your exploring journey of Hogwarts and the areas around it, you will uncover a lot of secrets. The fate of the wizarding world is in your hands and you will pick whether you will join the light or dark side.
This isn’t everything however, the player will experience everyday Hogwarts stuff as well. You will be sorted into one of the four houses. Exploring your common room and the other parts of Hogwarts you will meet new companions. Make sure not to miss any classes! Because they are a part of the game as well. In the gameplay preview, we can also see the redemption room, taming of magical beasts, customizable gear, and more, making this the perfect videogame for any Harry Potter fan.
In Hogwarts Legacy, the player goes through his education in Hogwarts like any other familiar character of ours. You will learn various spells, how to brew potions, tame magical beasts, and master combat abilities. In the gameplay video, it is clear that in this complex combat system everyone will be able to find something that suits them.
Since the game hasn’t come out yet, we aren’t met with a lot of information. However, so far we know that Dragons, Trolls, Hippogriffs, and Nifflers will be intractable creatures. Also, Mandrakes can be used in combat to stun enemies.
Along with magical beasts, the morality system is important as well. Since it will determine if the player can learn certain spells like Avada Kedavra. As we mentioned before, on your journey through Hogwarts Legacy you will meet companions who will be able to expand your abilities and offer unique dialogues.
From what we’ve seen Hogwarts Legacy looks like an amazing game. It was built with the Unreal Engine and the graphics seem great. Along with the classical Harry Potter music themes, there are new scores as well. If the combat system is really as good as they say it is, then we recommend everyone to grab their wands!
