Hogwarts Legacy Has Finally Been Played: Powerful Gameplay

Hogwarts Legacy Has Finally Been Played: Powerful Gameplay ...

Hogwarts Legacy, one of the most anticipated video games of recent years, has received many negative reviews as a result of the controversy surrounding Harry Potter author JK Rowling and discussions about boycotting the film. Nevertheless, the game itself is a dream come true for many enthusiasts who to this day have been waiting in vain for their invitation to Hogwarts – at least in theory. We immediately donned the Invisibility Cloak and entered the forbidden section of the video game library.

Magical moments and where to look for them

Even if we have to slowly accept that no more owl mail will reach us, and we may well be muggles after all, we will soon be able to visit Hogwarts at least on the console.

At the start of our session with the game, we saw several towers and battlements, as well as a rather darkened Quidditch field.

We went to Hogwarts' entrance hall, greenhouse, and library. We immediately felt at home, although the areas are interpreted in a very original way, rather than simply recreate the scenes from the films. This instantly makes you want more, and we can't wait to see every single corner of the castle.

Peeves, the poltergeist who was still alive and well in Harry's school days, persisted in our explorations.

After you catch the ghosts, there are other pages of paper floating around in the game world that give you information and background stories about the magical world.

Hedwig's Theme, the Harry Potter theme song, will pop up if you grab one of the three with the summoning spell Accio. Hogwarts Legacy (buy now 79.99 € / 53.99 € ) appears to be packed with lovely details, which will certainly provide some nostalgia alongside all the new content.

It's not Slytherin, either?

You have to choose which of the four houses you want to join. We haven't had the chance to witness the selection ceremony that the Sorting Hat assigns you.

Moira Squier (narrative director/Advanced Game Writer) and Kelly Murphy (lead designer) discussed your choices in Hogwarts Legacy. That's great, since your chosen house will play out somewhat differently.

There are certain quests that are exclusive to Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin, as suggested by last week's leak. Depending on your crest, some people will react differently to you depending on your choice.

You are not permitted to bring your own pets, such as an owl, cat, or toad, however. As compensation, there remains the Room of Requirement, in which you take care of rescued animals and establish a structure.

The secret room in Harry Potter world only exists for those who need it desperately, and it evolves in ever-changing forms. It serves as a sort of zoo but also as a craft room for the crafting system.

All kinds of familiar stuff is included in Accio AAA.

At this time, we can't say much about Hogwarts Legacy's history. We already know that the self-created character takes center stage and doesn't enter the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry until around 15 years old, not the usual 11 years old.

A looming goblin rebellion and a previously unknown, ancient form of magic are promising that the novel will truly breathe new life into the universe, rather than simply repeat familiar Harry Potter legends.

In the allusion session, we followed the footsteps of poachers together with our classmate Poppy. According to them, they fight dragons against each other in a battle.

Despite the fantastic mythical creatures, the method appeared to be quite familiar: we dutifully chased Poppy after him, searched for remains in an abandoned camp, then sneaked past our foes to the destination. It makes more sense and is easier to keep your head down if you get in trouble.
