Many Potterheads around the world can't wait to get their hands on the Harry Potter-based videogame ever since Avalance Software announced its development last 2020. The game is scheduled to be released this year, 2022, but we still don't have any idea what the game is all about.
Check the trailer of Hogwarts: Legacy below:
The only thing we know as of now is that the game is still in development and will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, and Xbox Series X this 2022.
One insider, Tom Henderson, known for different gaming scoops like GTA, Modern Warfare, and Battlefield has shared an update with the WB’s game. According to him, the game is now ready but are just waiting for something. Henderson suggests waiting for Playstation’s State of Play, which is also rumored to happen really soon.
However, in a new report done by Youtuber, RetroRacounteur, he claims that the game’s level design is heavily inspired by Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us Part 2, and its open-world will system that would allow dungeons and different regions to be explored in the game.
Hogwarts Legacy’s open-world mechanics will be dungeons, enemy camps, and open-world exploration and adventure. The game will also put stealth and combat mechanics into the game.
On the game’s official site, the only description they have is:
"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."
Though we don't have any conclusive release date yet on the game, rumors are spreading that the game will be released in September and the next, final trailer will be released early this year.
