Here is the game that has been rumored about for months and years: an open-world role-playing game set in the world of Harry Potter, albeit without Harry Potter. In yesterday's PS5 showcase, Warner Bros. and Sony showed a trailer in which players will visit a Hogwarts around 1800 without curmudgeon Snape or Longbeard Dumbledore. Look at him?
We've been talking about it for quite a while, now it's finally official – and equipped with graphically pretty pretty pictures: Hogwarts Legacy will move to the screens of the PlayStation 5 in 2021, among other things, but PC and Xbox players will also be sent into the world of wizards. The RPG in the Harry Potter universe lets you visit Hogwarts late (unless you've just turned 11!), brew bubbling potions, ride hippogriff and save the world. You can see what that looks like in the official first trailer:
Hogwarts Legacy is supposed to stomp into the game world as a real role-playing game, with a magician that you create yourself and a completely new adventure that you won't know from either the books or the movies. In your own wizarding adventure you should even be able to decide whether you give in to the dark arts – or dedicate your very special gift to the good:
“Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to one ancient secret in itself – and that threatens to divide the world of magicians in two. You received late admission to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and soon discovered that you are not a normal student: you have the unusual gift perceive and learn ancient magic. Only you can decide whether to keep this secret for the sake of the world or to bow to temptation, dark magic to indulge. "
Hogwarts Legacy was announced at yesterday's PS5 showcase. There was also some information about you new God of War part and the PS5 price – by the way.
