For the longest time, we knew a Harry Potter RPG would release. Today, we finally got confirmation that Hogwarts Legacy will be released sometime next year.
The game is going to be a massive open-world RPG, which will take place in the 1800s. You will play as a student who holds the key to an secret that could tear the wizarding world apart. Players will explore Hogwarts, as well as other locations fans will recognize. However, it does look like new areas will also be shown.
“Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.
Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.”
Alongside this, it looks like the game will tailor each players experience – Characters can be customized, and their talents can be upgraded. You can also choose which route to go through your story – You can stay on the good side, or explore some darker magic.
When Hogwarts Legacy r, it will be available for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, and PC.
