Set in the Late 1800s, it’s a long, long time before the books and films of the Harry Potter magical universe. It start off in Hogwarts, but as your magical abilities grow in the arts of spellcasting, potion brewing and the taming of beasts, you’ll head out and explore more parts of the wizarding world, as you go on the hunt after an ancient power in an open world. You’ll be able to visit new and familiar wizarding world locations including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.
David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games said, “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. 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.”
Oh yeah! As rumoured, it’s Avalanche that are on the case of developing it, but not the Just Cause Avalanche. This is the Disney Infinity Avalanche Software.
Well, either way, John Blackburn, Studio General Manager said, “It’s such an honour 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. 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.”
