“Hogwarts Legacy” Cinematic Trailer Released Along with the Return of Wizarding Wednesdays

On January 18, Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software released a new cinematic trailer, titled “The Invitation,” for the upcoming Wizarding World video game Hogwarts Legacy. An open-world RPG, Hogwarts Legacy will be released on most platforms on February 10.

The trailer “The Invitation” includes some never-before-seen footage of the game, an exciting inclusion as its release draws nearer. In an email, Warner Bros. Games noted what can be seen in the trailer itself:

The cinematic [trailer] follows an owl carrying the coveted invitation as it soars across the castle rooftops and over the heads of students in [t]he Great Hall, providing an overhead view of some of the iconic Hogwarts locations that players will be able to explore. As the owl glides through the castle, fans will recognize some familiar names and faces, including Nearly Headless Nick and Professor Weasley. The owl’s journey also highlights some of the hidden dangers that players will face, as it narrowly avoids a horde of giant spiders in the Forbidden Forest, a deadly blast of Avada Kedavra from a masked wizard and a dragon’s fiery breath.

You can watch “The Invitation” embedded below.



As an additional bonus for fans looking forward to the release of Hogwarts Legacy, Warner Bros. Games wrote that it is bringing back Wizarding Wednesdays, which have been used to promote the Fantastic Beasts films. Warner Bros. Games shared more about these promotions too.

Fans will be able to celebrate the official release of Hogwarts Legacy on each of the four Wednesdays leading up to the game’s release by entering to win exclusive Wizarding World prizes, including a chance to win a Universal Parks & Resorts vacation at either Hollywood or Orlando to experience the magic of [t]he Wizarding World of Harry PotterTM. Fans can learn more by visiting www.hogwartslegacy.com/en-us/wizardingwednesdays.

Though the URL included in the quote above appears not to be working yet at the time of publication, you can also access the entry page for Wizarding Wednesdays from the Hogwarts Legacy home page.
