Bring back the magic

Listen to this Article

After months of rumors, developer Avalanche Software today announced its new open-world game set in the Harry Potter universe.

Titled Hogwarts Legacy, the game takes place in the 1800s. You play as a student who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, which means you’ll attend plenty of classes and learn spells as you go.

Seeing how the game will be open-world, you’ll also be able to visit places like the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village. Although you won’t see Harry Potter or other well-known characters, you can create your character from the jump.

Hogwarts Legacy will launch in 2021 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
