Hogwarts Legacy RPG will bring the wizarding school to life

Without a doubt, 2022 is the Year of the Open World. Less than a quarter of the year done, the gaming industry has seen remarkable entries to the open-world RPG genre including Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Horizon Forbidden West, and Elden Ring. The year isn’t even done yet. Keeping the genre on its toes, WB Games Avalanche released a huge teaser for the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy, a tale set in the eponymous magical school.

Though the new game shares the same universe as its namesake, Hogwarts Legacy takes place in the 19th century before the original book series’ events. It’s more than just an adaptation. However, if you’ve played the old Harry Potter games in the past, the new game echoes and amplifies the experience with better graphics and worldbuilding.

Playing as their own custom witch or wizard, players go through the classes that the magical school offers. As such, they can choose their house, attend classes, meet professors, make friends, and explore the castle grounds or the areas surrounding Hogwarts.

Of course, it’s not all schoolwork. Though the game focuses on the school, a darkness pervades the world. According to the 17-minute trailer shared in the recent State of Play, players are thrust into the mystery of an ongoing goblin rebellion and an old magic that threatens to change the wizarding world forever.

In that world, players can mold their playstyle to their own liking including preferred spells, battle styles, and even alignment. The trailer even hints that players might be able to use forbidden evil spells like Avada Kedavra.

Hogwarts Legacy is coming this holiday season for the PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
