Hogwarts Legacy on the PS5 will have various features unique to the console and others will not have. According to Avalanche Software, the PS5 allows them to take the immersion of the game even further, making the game quite a unique experience for a Harry Potter fan.
Hogwarts Legacy PS5 Features DualSense Controller
With the PS5’s DualSense wireless controller, it becomes an extension of the player’s wand in the game. The adaptive triggers will allow more flexibility in combat with so many spells to use. In every spell released or summoning the strength for a more powerful charm, players will feel the magical resistance.
Each spell will feel unique thanks to the haptic feedback, which provides the direct connection between the DualSense controller and the wand. The effects will be felt on the right side of the controller. Deflecting a spell with Protego will also let players feel the magic being reflected and absorbed by the Shield Charm.
DualSense controller also allows players to feel different types of events throughout the world of Hogwarts Legacy like crushing ingredients with a mortar and pestle in Potions class, feeling the screech of a Mandrake seedling, or flying with a broom or hippogriff.
The DualSense controller’s light also has its own unique personalization. When it is not flashing with spells being cast or damage being taken, it will also have its own default light. It will pulse with colors of the players’ Hogwarts house. Ravenclaw has blue and bronze colors, Gryffindor has scarlet and gold, Slytherin has green and silver, and Hufflepuff has yellow and black.
Sights and Sounds in Hogwarts Legacy
Hogwarts Legacy on PS5 offers visuals in stunning 4K resolution with options for Fidelity and Performance graphics modes. These options allow players to create their preferred experience whether prioritizing a higher framerate or visual fidelity.
The PS5’s Tempest 3D AudioTech allows players to hear sounds that ordinary audio devices do not have. Hear the crackle of fire as a player casts Incendio in clear sound, making it the perfect immersive experience. If players do not want to play without headphones, they can listen to those via the DualSense controller speaker.
Fast Loading Times and Traversal
With the PS5 SSD, players can traverse through the world of Hogwarts Legacy so quickly. Loading times are almost non-existent as well.
Hogwarts Legacy launches this coming Holiday 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
