The planned Harry Potter-themed video game Hogwarts Legacy is in production for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC, although little is known about it beyond what was revealed in the game’s announcement trailer, key art, and other promotional materials. This means that people don’t have much to go on, which also means that they’ve been poring over what little is out there for many, many months at this point. Announced in late 2020 for a 2021 release before being delayed to 2022 just months later, this means that people don’t have much to go on, which also means that they’ve been poring over what little is out there for many, many months at this point. As an example, one fan recently pointed out that the whole key art for the game conceals a scary element.
Essentially, a smaller version of the key picture depicts a wizard standing in front of a woodland region near Hogwarts with some recognised beasts in the background. If you’re not looking at a particularly bright version, or if you’re looking at the cover’s cropped key art, you might miss the enormous, horrifying spider to the right, as one fan pointed out on Reddit. Even if you know where to search, it can be difficult to find, but once you do, it can instantly click into place. Additionally,While it’s not surprising that a Harry Potter video game would have huge spiders, considering the franchise’s history with them, it’s quite another to face them in an interactive video game.
“Experience Hogwarts in the nineteenth century. Your character is a student who is in possession of the key to an ancient secret that threatens to split the wizarding world in two “In part, according to the official description of Hogwarts Legacy. “You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry andYou’ll quickly realise that you’re not your average student: you have a unique capacity to recognise and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide whether you’ll keep this secret for the greater good or succumb to the lure of more nefarious magic.”
As previously stated, Hogwarts Legacy will be released on Steam in 2022 for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC. All of our prior coverage of the impending Harry Potter video game can be found right here.
