First and foremost, I did not even know this was a potential game that was going to be made. When I first saw the debut trailer announcing the game I was instantly amazed. The trailer showcased what will be in store for us upon the game’s release in 2021.
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.
The game is set in the 1800s and will be canon to the Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter movies so that’s a plus and could also leave the door open for special cameos inside of the game especially with it being open-world.
Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. This alone makes me excited as we get to customize our characters and I hope we get to pick the house we join like Gryffindor.
This quote about the game “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.” makes me wonder if, within the game story itself, we could potentially choose if we want to stay a good wizard or witch or become a dark wizard/witch. This would make the game story that little bit more interesting.
The debut trailer showcased not only a potentially great game but it also showcased the graphics that will be on the game on a console like the Playstation 5.
I’ll definitely be picking up the game on release day whenever that will be in 2021 and it will 100% be pre-ordered.
