Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action RPG set in the Harry Potter universe created by J.K. Rowling. The development of the game is the responsibility of Avalanche Software studio ( Disney Infinity 3.0 and Cars 3: Driven to Win), which has worked with Portkey Games (Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and Hogwarts Mystery) and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
Hogwarts Legacy is set in 19th century Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and its surroundings. The events of the game take place many years before those known from Harry Potter books and films.
The plot tells the story of a wizard or sorceress from his or her earliest years of schooling at Hogwarts. The protagonist of Hogwarts Legacy is the key to an ancient secret that threatens the wizarding world. He or she is no ordinary student, as he/she possesses an extraordinary ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. It is up to him/her whether he/she will keep it a secret or practice the forbidden arts.
The gameplay in Hogwarts Legacy is all about exploring the magical castle and its surroundings - the player has a lot of freedom of movement thanks to the open living world. As we play the role of a student, an indispensable part of the game is to attend classes in elixirs, herbalism, spells, defense against dark arts or care for magical creatures.
During the adventure we develop our character, learn new spells, unlock access to new locations and secrets, win allies and encounter fantastic animals. We may also encounter dark forces along the way, but it is up to us whether we surrender or not. Our decisions made during the game have a significant impact on the course of history and its ending.
Hogwarts Legacy graphics show a fairly high level of detail in its rendering of Hogwarts and its magic-soaked locations. The game perfectly captures the atmosphere from Harry Potter's books and films.
