“Hogwarts Legacy” Debuts All-New Trailer at Gamescom

A trailer, whether for a movie, show, or video game, is one of the public’s only ways to see exclusive content before a product is released. Hogwarts Legacy premiered a new trailer today at Gamescom, and we couldn’t be more excited.



Right away, this trailer shows more ominous themes players will have a chance to encounter. Creepy Inferi, massive trolls, and dangers unknown are all that await you and more. As a new student at Hogwarts, you’ll meet Slytherin student Sebastian Sallow, who seems to believe that learning and embracing the Dark Arts will be the key to solving the mystery that lies ahead. But will you be tempted to dig deeper into the Dark Arts?

From what we can tell from the newly released trailer, all the extra wait for this game may very well be worth it. Every stunning detail has been considered, from character customization to spell-casting to plot. The stunning graphics, art, and visuals are enough to get anyone excited, and boy, they are looking good so far.
