At the big PS5 Showcase, Warner Bros. Games announced the open world game Hogwarts Legacy. It should appear next year for both the PC and consoles – including the NextGen platforms. First details and a trailer can be seen in the message.
After numerous rumors and speculations, Warner Bros. Games has officially announced the open-world action game Hogwarts Legacy as part of the big PS5 Showcase. This is the latest project from Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity) which is to appear in the course of next year for the PC and consoles – including the NextGen platforms PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. However, a specific release date has not yet been set firmly.
After all, there are already the first tangible details about the story and content of Hogwarts Legacy. The action takes place in the famous wizarding world of the 19th century, where you slip into the role of a new student at Hogwarts. You travel through a freely accessible world that offers both familiar and completely new locations – including the Forbidden Forest and the village of Hogsmeade. In the beginning it is your job to develop your magical abilities by not only learning spells, but also taming fantastic beasts and brewing your own potions. Later, you have to forge alliances, compete against dark wizards and discover the fate of your character. It's probably not as common as it seems at the beginning. The focus of the open world adventure should be free exploration of the game world, magical elements from the Harry Potter world and some role-play aspects.
Below this message you will not only find the first screenshots of Hogwarts Legacy, but also a trailer that will put you in the mood for the magical adventure with the help of some scenes.
