At the recent PS5 Showcase stream, Warner Bros. Games revealed the once-leaked open-world RPG set in the Harry Potter universe, Hogwarts Legacy. It’s developed by Avalance, no not Avalanche Studios- this is one’s Avalanche Software.
Set in the 1800s wizarding world, you play as a student enrolled at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Learn and grow your character’s skill with mastering spells and other skills, while doing missions that extends beyond the gates of the school, including locations like the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.
It’s been a while since we see a game based on boarding school life, Bully comes into mind. Though the Persona series also depicts the life of a fantastical high-school student.
Still, if you’re a fan of the universe (despite the original author’s current controversy), this might be something interesting. Hogwarts Legacy releases in 2021 for the PS4. PS5, PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
