Hogwarts Legacy, Open World RPG Set In Harry Potter Universe Announced At PlayStation Event

It seems we're all wizards, Harry. Warner Bros and Avalanche are taking players to Hogwarts in their newly announced open world action RPG, Hogwarts Legacy.

The trailer, which debuted during the PlayStation 5 Showcase today, shows off Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and more as wizards feed fantastical beasts, duel each other and learn to fly their broomsticks. 

According to the official website, Hogwarts Legacy brings players to the 1800s as you seek to unlock an ancient secret.

Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. 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.

Hogwarts Legacy is coming in 2021 for PlayStation 4 and 5, as well as Xbox One and the Xbox Series X/S - as well as PC.
