Initially, this game was set to deliver in 2021, but it was postponed saying the game has to be “bug-free”. Which leaves us muggles, nothing but wait till 2022 for its release.
One common question among most of the Harry Potter fans waiting for this is whether this game is set on the Harry Potter timeline or not? Well… if you were thinking that the game would be set in the Harry Potter timeline, then you were given the wrong information. The developer, Avalanche Software, has confirmed that the Hogwarts Legacy will not be set in the Harry Potter timeline. Although the game is set on the base experience of JK Rowling’s creation, the game will be set in the 1800s. Moreover, like the fantasy fiction novel, you won’t be playing Harry’s role, but create your own unique story at Hogwarts. You start your school year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as a gifted student. But with time you discover that you have a dangerous journey lying ahead. Hogwarts Legacy works out such that your fate at Hogwarts will be set by every choice you make.
In Hogwarts Legacy, you will be playing as a student who is let into Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry around 5th year. The game starts like how the Harry Potter Story goes, you will be learning magic in classes. However, you realize that your character has some special connection with the ancient magic hidden deep within the Hogwarts school. Now it is up to you how to utilize your powers. You can either stop this power from tearing apart the Wizarding world or else take advantage of it further for your benefit.
Like any other game character creation is an important part of the game. Especially if the game is based on some famous novel and movies, like Harry Potter. Then fans would already have an image of how they will flaunt in Hogwarts uniform. Multiple sources on the web have suggested that in Hogwarts legacy you can customize your character to a great extent. You can customize how your witches and wizards will look. You can even choose one of the four grand houses of Hogwarts – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. As you have access to choose your house you might even be able to explore your castles as common rooms are different for different houses.
Various sources also leaked that character creation will also include transgender-inclusive customization. That means you will be able to adjust the body type and the voice of your character to make the game more transgender-inclusive. Even though this is a great step to fight toxicity in the gaming world where usually characters are either male or female. But, a small part of the audience thinks this step will barely make amends.
Hogwarts Legacy being an open-world game, one can expect a sizable map to chart. Like you know, Hogwarts has many secrets hiding in camouflaged alcoves, changing staircases, and chambers guarded by portraits. Sources suggest that the game will have multiple locations set from the novels. Such as Diagon alley, Hogwarts Castle, the great gall, library, portion classroom, forbidden forest herbology classroom, etc. You can even visit the Hogsmeade and enjoy a cup of butterbeer.
Even though not much has been revealed by Warner Bros and Avalanche Software, but few activities have been valid. For instance, lessons in Hogwarts school with portions, transfiguration, and Herbology, Quidditch Match. You might also be able to play with wizard’s chess, fight with dragons, fly Hippogriffs, care for the magical creatures at Hogwarts and even duel some dark wizard.
One can expect some serious fan service in this game as each Harry Potter fan might want to unravel a different portion of Hogwarts. You can even hope for some all-time favorite spells and curses to be brought to life in the game. Exploring the deep lakes and the forests of Hogwarts and discovering some amazing magical creatures would be exciting.
