Hogwarts Legacy gameplay sony

Hogwarts Legacy (finally) shows its gameplay during a magical State of Play!

Discover without further delay the gameplay of the game Hogwarts Legacy! A fantastic dive into the world’s most famous wizarding world.

We were looking forward to it, and we are far from disappointed. Hogwarts Legacythe game inspired by the literary and cinematographic saga Harry Potter, shows its gameplay for the very first time since the game was officially announced over a year ago. Here is the video shared by Sony during its surprise State of Play. Is the best game of the year yet to come? Possibly.

In total, the firm devoted 20 minutes to the presentation of the game, of which 14 served to present certain possibilities of gameplay and part of its history. As a reminder, Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world game developed by Avalanche Studio, best known for its work on Rage 2 especially.

You too become a wizard

In this opus, which takes us back almost 100 years before the arrival of Voldemort or Harry Potter himself, you play as a new Hogwarts student whose year will not be easy. Indeed, an evil force is trying to destroy the wizarding world with ancient magic, the secrets of which you are the only one to know.

But first, you’ll need to create your character from head to toe. For the moment, the question of the houses is not yet very clear. It’s unclear if we’ll be able to choose our own house or if the sorting hat will take care of it randomly. But one thing is certain, regardless of your house, you should follow the same courses and face the same opponents.

Between exploration and action: the perfect RPG

At Hogwarts, the 5th year is one of the most important since it is at this time that young wizards must pass their Buzzards, an exam which is similar to our muggle baccalaureate. But with the magical entity trying to harm you, certain things will surely come first. To complete your mission, you will have to learn all the secrets and corners of Hogwarts, inside and out.

Exploration is the key, as you will come across plenty of puzzles to solve but also plenty of things to do, like helping your friends for example. They will then be able to accompany you on your adventure and offer you valuable assistance. Training will also be very important and you will have to increase your level in sorcery, but also in combat and botany, to achieve your goals.

All that’s missing is the wizard’s wand

From what we could see with these minutes of gameplay, Hogwarts Legacy promises to be extremely faithful to the atmosphere of the films Harry Potter, but also books, integrating passages that sound like wonderful easter eggs such as the one in the kitchens of Hogwarts, where many house-elves work. We also note the integration of the universe of Fantastic Beastswhile the third part is expected on April 13 at the cinema.

However, even after all that, the studio still hasn’t given us a release date for the game, which is expected for the holiday season later in 2022. Read more about the world ofHogwarts Legacymeet here.
