Hogwarts Legacy Gets New Gameplay Footage

Hogwarts Legacy, the upcoming open-world RPG set in the Harry Potter universe, has just received a new gameplay reveal. Showcased during the latest State of Play presentation, developer Avalanche Software showed us 14 minutes of PS5 gameplay footage.

Creating your own character, you'll be sorted into one of Hogwarts' four houses. Leading a student life, there's wizard duelling, broomstick flying, and taking down enemies with various spell combinations. There's also customisable magical gear you can obtain.

Taking us back to 1800s, Avalanche detailed more in a PlayStation Blog, confirming:

Your story deserves to be as thrilling as other wizarding heroes. We start you as a late-fifth year so you needn’t hold back on the kinds of adventures (and themes) you might want to explore. We place you in the 1800s to ensure your legend is never overshadowed by any other hero. And we invent a new dark mystery so your conflict never feels like a retread of something you’ve seen before.

Hogwarts Legacy launches this Holiday 2022. Arriving on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Nintendo Switch, we'll keep you informed with further details as we hear them.
