Hogwarts Legacy Launches Holiday 2022, Gets New Gameplay Showcase

GamesBeat Summit 2022 returns with its biggest event for gaming leaders on April 26-28. Reserve your spot here!

Warner Bros. today revealed more information about the upcoming game, Hogwarts Legacy, at a special State of Play show. The game will be launched on holiday 2022.

As things stand, the developers released a lengthy gameplay trailer that shows more of the world around Hogwarts, more than a century before the birth of the series’ protagonist, Harry Potter.

The trailer showed some of the characters that will appear in the castle – the narrator points out that as the game is set in the late 1800s, most of the familiar faces from the Harry Potter books are not there yet. The player character mysteriously joins Hogwarts at age 15, as opposed to the traditional 11. The trailer also hints that the player character may be able to pursue the Dark Arts.

According to the trailer, the player character must team up with Professor Fig to investigate a possible goblin rebellion. There are also hints that the goblins are connected to Dark Wizards who for some reason are interested in the player’s character (or another student). The gameplay consists of the use of spells in combat and navigation, as well as talents that you can adapt to your play style. There are also several classes, each with different specialties based on different schoolwork in the universe.

The player character can customize the Room of Requirement and will also have a variety of companions to take with them on their adventures. In all fairness, I could broadly gesture over the action-adventure and RPG genres of the past five years or so, and you’d probably get a general idea of ​​the gameplay.

We haven’t been given a specific release date, but the game will launch over the holiday season.
