Hogwarts Legacy promises players the chance to immerse themselves in the world of Harry Potter like never before. The huge expansion of the wizarding world, Hogwarts Legacy, will take Harry Potter fans back to the iconic 19th-century school. You won’t just be hanging out with Harry Potter, you’ll be visiting the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in 1800, where the boys lived.
Hogwarts Legacy is an upcoming open-world adventure game set in the Harry Potter universe and has been confirmed after months of rumors by Avalanche Software as in development. The game has been in development for some time, and if rumors are to be believed, the best Xbox games will play for their money when it is released.
As the name Hogwarts suggests, Hogwarts Legacy will take players to Hogwarts School of Magic. Rather than being a retreading of the story from the Harry Potter books and films, the game is set in the 19th century and will have its own story to take on the world. It is expected to be released in 2021 for the PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS4, and PC, but we will wait until 2022 to play it as the game has been delayed with developers saying the game will need more time before it is ready for release.
We don’t know much about Hogwarts’s legacy, but from its unveiling trailer, we can safely say it looks great. Avalanche and Portkey Games have announced that the game will follow the wizarding world set in the original Harry Potter novels, with an original story that the studio did not write with J.K. Rowling. A screenshot from the reveal trailer looks like Avalanche is designing its 1800s version of Hogwarts.
The game allows you to create your own legacy in Hogwarts as a new student, with all sorts of choices you need to make. It will drag on for a long time, so you won’t see as many familiar faces as you’d like.
It’s been a while since the last full Harry Potter game on consoles was released, but finally, we have something to play: Hogwarts Legacy, an action role-playing game set in the wizarding world. The game was developed by Avalanche Software (for the Disney Infinity series) and released by Warner Bros. Interactive under the label Portkey Games. It has been in the works for several years, but details of the game are limited.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the rumored wizard role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy, but it’s still a work in progress. The game is supposed to arrive in our lives in 2022, to be precise, but we’ll come to that in a moment.
Before the events of the books, you won’t find the students and teachers that fans have loved for years, but the long-heralded open-world game set in the Harry Potter universe seems to offer a whole new way to explore the iconic Hogwarts Magic School. Looking at the unveiling trailer, it looks like the rumored wizard role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy has all the kinds of wizarding schools and activities we would expect from a wizarding world role-playing game. Instead of the usual motley crew of bookies, the game will take place in the lives of the boys.
The trailer for the mysterious “Harry Potter” game was leaked two years ago, and the game was confirmed during Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 presentation. The game has been around for more than two years, but it wasn’t officially unveiled until September 16.
While the graphical differences we can expect due to the generation gap are unconfirmed, it is safe to say that Hogwarts Legacy will look like a PS5 / Xbox Series X developed by Avalanche Software and released by Warner Bros. Games.
At E3 Warner Bros. confirmed this, but it was later announced that Hogwarts Legacy and Suicide Squad would not be shown at the event. We don’t have the option to play the game ourselves, so we’ll have to wait a while to find out any gameplay details, but the official Hogwarts Legacy website summarizes what we know so far. It’s been quiet since we found out about the departure time, but Hogwarts Express continues and everything you need to know about the game can be found here.
According to a Bloomberg report, Hogwarts Legacy will feature a transgender character creator. The report states that sources familiar with the development of the games have revealed that the game will allow players to adapt their character’s body type, voice, gender, and placement in boarding schools. The recent teaser trailer for PS5 showed that Hogwarts Legacy will be released on the next-gen consoles PS5, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S, with the game also running on its broom on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
