Chandler Wood the community manager at Avalanche Software was excited to reveal more via the PlayStations blog
In the game, you’ll be able to choose what type of witch or wizard you want to be. The Character models are inspiring.
You’ll also experience what it’s like to fly through the world in a way only a student of Hogwarts can.
Game Director Alan Tew spoke about what a complete experience the game is expected to be “The most ever-present part of the Wizarding World is its magic, and the playful nature and ‘realness’ of its distinct rules should fuel a surprising, dark mystery that tests the combined resources of those who discover it.
But just as important are the opportunities to experience hundreds of memorable moments, small and large, that fans grew up with and know by heart: from being Sorted in the Great Hall, exploring a new secret chamber in Hogwarts, or impersonating others with Polyjuice Potion; to protecting innocents from a dangerous troll, dodging fireballs from a Hungarian Horntail, or soaring into the sky on the back of a friendly Hippogriff.”
Depending on which Hogwarts house you’re in it will make it a unique experience right down to that house’s common room distinct architecture, décor, and entrances.
Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player open-world action RPG. While you can have NPC companions join you on your adventures, the story is about your own legacy.
Unfortunately, no release date was given outside of “Holidays 2022”, the game will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC
