During Sony’s PS5 Showcase Event on September 16th, 2020, we got more gameplay footage from games like Demon’s Souls, and new surprises such as FFXVI. Our favorite announcement, however, is a longtime rumor that is now a reality! Check below for everything we know about Hogwarts Legacy, a Harry Potter RPG set in the 1800s!
About Hogwarts Legacy
Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be.
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.
The game is being developed by Portkey Games (Warner Bros.) and Avalanche Software. It will be releasing on the PS4, the PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC sometime in 2021.
