New Shots of “Hogwarts Legacy” Shown at Tech Event

Software company Autodesk released a new cutscene of the long-awaited Hogwarts Legacy during the Autodesk Vision Series, where game developers demonstrated how the software is used to bring the cinematics of Hogwarts Legacy to life. The cutscene involves two students watching Dark wizards trying to restrain a hippogriff. As the hippogriff bursts outside, one of the Dark wizards can be heard shouting “restrain the beast!” as spells are shot at it, while the two onlooking Hogwarts students make a plan to help free the creature.



The presentation also showed a character editor screen, displaying the tools the developers use to create the game’s characters, with a Professor Abraham Ronan being named in a tweet. Also shown was a shot of the in-game character creation screen, displaying different outfits for the character.



Other screenshots from the presentation show people being filmed from different angles, capturing character movement within the game, with one image showing a person walking up to a large circular object that could perhaps be the door to the Chamber of Secrets.



Last month, there were rumors suggesting that Hogwarts Legacy may have customizable wands and romance options, including LGBTQIA+ options.

We are still waiting on an official release date for the game, which has been delayed from the initial 2021 date. Hopefully, there isn’t too much longer to wait — Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment stated it will be released at the end of 2022, and the description on the official Hogwarts Legacy Twitter page reads “Holiday 2022.” On top of this, the game’s official art book will be released on December 6, perhaps hinting that the game will also be released then too.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Will you be playing when it is finally released?
