Hogwarts Legacy allows gamers to become a student at Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft and Wizardry
It seems that the decision by telecom giant AT&T not to sell its video game division, Warner Bros Games, was a smart move, and it is now launching a new franchise video game. On Wednesday, the company unveiled its most recent Harry Potter game, “Hogwarts Legacy,” where players can experience life from the perspective of a student in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s. This is a role-playing video game that was developed by Disney Infinity developer Avalanche, and it is getting ready to hit the market next year for most gaming consoles like Microsoft Corp’s Xbox Series S, Series X, and Xbox One consoles, Sony’s PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro, and PC.
While playing this game, players can “grow their magical abilities by mastering spells, brewing potions and taming fantastic beasts,” according to a description by Warner Bros Games said. Fans will have access to familiar locations where the story develops, such as the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village. The announcement of this game was made during Sony’s PlayStation 5 live stream event, where the company confirmed that its next generation of gaming consoles will be released to the market in November, with prices between $399.99 and $499.99.
During Sony’s event, the trailer of the game was presented, and it showed off all its open-world elements, detailed environments, and some of the creatures that live on the surrounding areas – and beneath the school. “Your potential is limitless,” said the narrator, who then confirms that the game will present fantastic beasts to defeat, multiple spells to be learned while making life-long friends and dealing with dragons.
