Hogwarts Legacy

Game company Warner Bros. Games officially announced open-world, single-player, action role-playing video game Hogwarts Legacy.

The game will be set in the 1800s wizarding world. Players will experience life as a student at the popular Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. They will live in a whole new experience in a whole new adventure, unlocking the hidden truths of the wizarding world. The game is developed by Avalanche and published by Warner Bros. Games.

This new title will be launched in 2021 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, and PC. It was highly rumored before about a Harry Potter game in an open-world setting, and with this announcement, it just made it official.

About the game:

Hogwarts Legacy is filled with immersive magic, putting players at the center of their adventure to become the witch or wizard they choose to be. They will grow their character’s abilities as they master powerful spells, hone combat skills and select companions to help them face off against deadly enemies. Players will also encounter missions and scenarios that will pose difficult choices and determine what they stand for.

As the climactic story begins, players grow their magical abilities by mastering spells, brewing potions and taming fantastic beasts. Along the way, they will uncover an expansive world filled with perilous dangers tied to the wizarding world’s long forgotten past and an unusual ability that only they possess. The open-world journey takes players beyond Hogwarts to new and familiar wizarding world locations including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.

“Hogwarts Legacy gives players control over their own experience with RPG gameplay unlike anything else in the Wizarding World, which will continue to build fan appeal in the Portkey Games label,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. “Avalanche has brought to life this rich and deep world, full of action-packed magic, as well as a detailed, mysterious story to engage fans and gamers alike.”

“It’s such an honor to work on such an amazing franchise and the team is dedicated to delivering an authentic Wizarding World experience that both Harry Potter and RPG fans will enjoy,” said John Blackburn, Studio General Manager, Avalanche. “Hogwarts Legacy is so special because it allows players to immerse themselves in a new narrative that is filled with complex characters, and, of course, magic.”
