Hogwarts Legacy


Recommended Posts

  • Administrator

There's been rumours circulating for awhile now about a Harry Potter open world RPG game.

Basically, you can be part of any of the houses, compete for points and explore the world of Harry Potter.

I think this would be super cool. The games were okay, but really limiting since you had to be Gryffindor.

Thoughts?

This would be an amazing game - I know rumours are rampant now that they were going to talk about the HP game at E3 before E3 got cancelled which sucks. I'd really like to see more before getting my hopes up though. So fingers crossed for it because this is right up my alley.

Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be.

Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.

Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.

It's finally here everyone! The Harry Potter RPG we've all been waiting for! All those rumours over the years have been proven true.

I can finally live out my dreams as a witch fighting for the glory of Slytherin woo hoo!

The website lists PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC.

I legit have tears of joy in my eyes.

I'm so excited for this. Feel like I've been waiting for it for ages - however! i hope we have better characterisations than the mobile games because everyone's so one dimensional and it doesn't make for compelling game play. Like yes, running around hogwarts is great for a while but I want to feel like I'm making an impact and that there will be people I want to help. Fingers crossed it's good because there's only so many times I can play Lego Harry Potter :lol:

I'm so hyped for this. I heard about this game about three years ago when some details were leaked, but never thought it would actually happen. It sounded way too good to be true.

I kinda always wondered why hadn't there been an RPG open world HP game yet? The world is so rich and there's a great deal of customization available.

I hope we can play Quidditch and we get put in a position we scored best in or something. I also hope we go through each year instead of having everything available to us all at once.

Although I kinda hope for a bit of a multiplayer experience in the form of an online scoreboard of which house has earned the most point globally. They did this thing in Dark Souls 2 for a global death counter, tracking how many times players all over had died.

Yeah, give us the old Quidditch game again, like where you actually play quidditch like it's a FIFA game. I'd so do that. And yeah I remember that leak, it got so that no one was talking about it anymore and it seemed almost like it was a fake. And then the mobile games came and so people thought that was it. Mobile game does let you traverse through the years, so I can't imagine this game forces you into one because part of the appeal of Hogwarts is going through the years and learning the spells. I'm so hyped for this! Honestly, I'm going to be so let down if it's not everything I want it to be LOL.

I dunno, global stuff like that I would hope could be turned off because that's a level of anxiety I do not need. I don't want to know. Like I'm in Hufflepuff. I'm never gonna win the house cup if it's a global thing. So no thank you. We don't have enough people.

Looks like the game is getting delayed until 2022 :( I guess they don't want to pull a Cyberpunk 2077.

Yeah saw that when it broke. Honestly I’m okay with that. I’d prefer the game have longer to be what it should be. Also with the whole JK thing they might want to distance themselves from that a little.

So it should be coming this year.

@Zadien @Hikari @Stubborn Loki @darkened-storm @Ace of Spies @Lightningblade49

I've got a few characters in mind I wanna try out.

  • My main would be a Slytherin character who is a bit of an asshole. He wants to be a dark wizard.
  • My second character (should I go through it again) would probably be based more on myself. So female.

This really feels like Bully (hilariously fun game) but in Hogwarts. I'm so keen. This game looks like the Harry Potter game I've always dreamed about.

I think there's still some things they really need to fix. Character design isn't great but not the worst thing ever. It doesn't feel like a triple A game, but like a bigger version of a mobile game.

The combat is not great in that showcase, so I hope that improves before they release it properly.

As for who I'll play, gotta see what the game requires and what house that character gets put into. I hope they give the character some depth and not create a complete shell. Huffleputt would be fun though because I want to actually experience the Hufflepuff common room since it's so rarely seen.

We have a release date!

Hogwarts Legacy will launch on February 10, 2023 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. The Nintendo Switch launch date will be revealed soon. The team is excited for you to play, but we need a little more time to deliver the best possible game experience.

Next Friday for current gen and PC! The dream will come to life! I'm so psyched. Even if you're not a big HP fan... Pick it up anyway and have a blast.

Does look like a fantastic game they've designed there, not done the quiz yet, probably will end up doing that when the game is out hahaha, something to do whilst I wait for it to download. I want to see how messed up can you make your character, we'll be spending quite a bit of time there seeing what we can edit, recolour and how the textures hold up. Gotta test out what names we can get away with without it being censored too XD

Not too fussed what house we get honestly, they all look like they have there own charms and little details to skip passed with fast travel later on, praise be to fast travel, a saving grace for time saving. Hopefully the follower NPC's can do actual damage to enemies so I can use them as human shields and swords XD

Thinking about getting Hogwarts Legacy when I have the money. It seems like a ton of fun, and Simon Peg is in it. 

Not shocked that Aquila is a fellow Slytherin, haha.

No matter what quiz I do, I get Slytherin. Clearly the best house hehe though when I last checked Sorting Hat results on here, we have a lot of Hufflepuffs hahahah.

But yeah, I've been watching a few videos just to get a slight feel for the game. And dang, it looks amazing. We've come so far... To think the first few HP games were like this:

Same? What the shit is up with that. I've taken that bitch six times, all at very different times in my life and I've gotten Slytherin every time. It's whack.

We are just the perfect Slytherins. Embrace perfection.

Slytherins aren't necessarily evil - they're just more likely to have dark wizards and witches. Slytherins just tend to be a bit more ambitious than the others and are more likely to end up going down a dark path. Keep in mind, Merlin was part of Slytherin and he was a good wizard. Slytherin kinda reminds me as a Chaotic Good. They'll do whatever is necessary to reach their goals even if it means having to 'break the rules' a bit. 

I mean, in the game, there are racist Hufflepuffs haha.

onto the game itself... A bit spoilers so spoiler-tagged.

Spoiler

I'm about halfway through the main story and I'm really enjoying it thus far. The environments are really nice to look at, the companion quests are fun and make you question your morals, and the combat is quite Soulslike in some ways. Some of the fights are quite difficult - I'm playing on hard and you really gotta think about which spells you want to use the most as it's a bit of a pain cycling through the control pad sets during a fight.

Although it's not a true RPG in the sense that every choice matters (most of your choices really don't matter game-wise), it's fun to make a canon for your character - It makes your choices have some sort of an impact head cannon wise. I've been having a blast playing a somewhat arrogant ambitious Slytherin who does things for people and then demands money afterwards because she's always broke. She does have her trusted friends of course - Seb (he has my favourite companion quest) - but everyone else she uses for her own means and she does not shy away from using the Unforgivable Curses. Though I gotta say - my character totally ends up in Azkaban a few years after school because she's a certified serial killer with a body count higher than whatever pathetic numbers Voldemort cooked up. 

Downsides wise... I do wish your house had more meaning though and it would've been nice to have some more house-specific quests with characters in that house. It would've been nice to have a reason to return to the Common Room as well. I also would've liked to have seen some mini-games that you can play with your housemates. Lastly, it would've been nice to have the option to go on a date with one of housemates too hehe. Yes, they're 15-16 year old teenagers, but Harry Potter got to go on a date with Cho for the Yule Ball thing so puppy love does exist! It would've just been nice to do things with your buddies outside quests.

Also - Ominis Gaunt is an ancestor of Voldemort. Pretty cool.
