Hogwarts Legacy is an upcoming action RPG set in the Harry Potter universe available for PC and consoles. In the game, you'll become one of the students of the best school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Players will be able to create unique characters and learn various spells. Of course, many players wonder if they can make Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy.

At Hogwarts, students are taught many different spells. However, there are three unforgivable spells that no one teaches, as their use is punishable by life imprisonment in Azkaban. But it looks like you can still use them in Hogwarts Legacy.

Can you do Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy?

The good news is that yes, you will be able to do Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy.

Avalanche Software showed some of the unforgivable curses in their gameplay showcase. In the video, the player fights in the Dark Arts Battle Arena. As the name implies, the most forbidden spells can be used in this arena.


Dark Arts Battle Arena will only be available to players who have purchased the Deluxe and Digital Deluxe editions of the game. However, this mode can also be unlocked through in-app purchases. In the Arena, you will have to fight against waves of enemies for rewards.

In a gameplay showcase, the player used the Crucio spell on enemies. They would stop and twitch in agony, taking constant damage. This is quite effective, especially when there are a lot of enemies around you.

However, Avada Kedavra was even better. In one of the waves, two armoured trolls appeared in the Arena. Just one Avada Kedavra killed a troll with full health.


Also, the Game Director stated that players will be able to learn forbidden spells in the base game as well. After that, players have many questions about the balance of the future game. Even with a long cooldown, Avada Kedavra can kill any opponent in a single use. Using it with various cooldown-reducing items, players will be able to walk through any battles. Therefore, we hope the developers will limit the use of this spell in some way.

What is Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy?

Judging by the trailers, Avalanche Software managed to create a fast-paced action RPG in the Harry Potter universe. Since there are many spells in it, players will be able to create many different combinations. Of course, among all the spells available to players, there are three unforgivable curses:

  • Avada Kedavra - The spell kills the victim instantly
  • Crucio - The spell inflicts incredible pain on the victim
  • Imperio - The spell makes the victim an obedient slave who follows any orders

These spells are very powerful. It would be more correct to say that they are the strongest offensive spells in the world. That is why everyone is so afraid of them.

That's all you need to know about Avada Kedavra in Hogwarts Legacy. The Unforgivable Spell can be used in the game. What's more, they are just as effective as in the original books and movies. However, such infinite power makes us think about the game balance. While you are here, make sure to check our guide on whether you can be evil in Hogwarts Legacy.
