Hogwarts Legacy Compared to Harry Potter Movies

If you were wondering whether Hogwarts Legacy will retain fidelity to the movies, rest assured - you will feel right at home in the game world.

The release of Hogwarts Legacy is still 4 days away (on PC and current-gen consoles), but online the game is already attracting huge interest (almost as big as the mountain trolls).

Today saw the first reviews of Avalanche Software's game, and almost every gaming editorial team spares no praise for the magical action RPG.

Hogwarts Legacy compared to the movies

Materials analyzing Hogwarts Legacy - including comparisons with the movies - have appeared on the web. How faithfully the game captures the locations from the movies presented in Harry Potter's adventures, you can find out from the analysis that appeared on the ElAnalistaDeBits channel.

The video shows a side-by-side comparison of characteristic places known from the world of the School of Magic and Wizardry - the castle's surroundings, the Great Hall, the classrooms of the various subjects, the headmaster's office, the library, the quidditch pitch and even the gamekeeper's hut..

You can see that the developers spared no effort or resources to convey the unique atmosphere of Hogwarts, while preserving numerous details. See for yourself.

This is not the only analysis of Hogwarts Legacy, as you will find out by reading the rest of the article.

How big is the Hogwarts Legacy map? Youtuber flies on a broomstick and checks

Hogwarts Legacy is the first open-world game set in the universe created by J.K Rowling. But how big is the world?

A Youtuber by the handle ESO decided to find the answer to this question by flying across the entire map on a broomstick.

Well, not exactly the whole thing. As the creator explained, in his video he included roughly 2/3 of the map, as its southernmost part is only available in the endgame. Nonetheless, crossing from the northern end (the Northern Crossing Marshes above the Forbidden Forest) all the way to the South Sea Marshes at the Coastal Cavern takes about 10 minutes on a broomstick.

Interestingly, not everywhere can be flown in on a broomstick. Leaving aside the blocked off area in the south of the map, the village of Hogsmeade also remains unfriendly to wizards/wizards on broomsticks, and we are fenced off by a magical barrier when attempting to fly.

Certainly the map in Hogwarts Legacy hides many secrets waiting to be discovered. You won't have to wait long to start exploring this world - the game will debut on February 10 on PC, PS5 and XSX/S. Those who decided to preorder the Deluxe edition will be able to enjoy the game a little earlier - on February 7, when the gates of Early Access will open.

PS4 and XOne owners need to wait on Hogwarts Legacy until April 4; the longest waiting period is before Nintendo Switch players - here you have to be patient until July 25.
