Hogwarts Legacy is filled with immersive magic, putting players at the center of their adventure to become the witch or wizard they choose to be. They will grow their character’s abilities as they master powerful spells, hone combat skills and select companions to help them face off against deadly enemies.

Footage of Hogwarts Legacy was leaked in 2018, which led to speculation about the game until it was officially announced by Warner Bros. in September 2020. Hogwarts Legacy is an action role-playing console game set in the 1800s wizarding world. The video game features open-world gameplay, which allows the player to explore and complete objectives freely.

We now know that it is set in the late 1800s and that its main plot is centered around the role of Professor Figg, who is interested in a goblin rebellion. Players will begin the game as a fifth-year student who is just starting at Hogwarts for the first time. As might be expected at Hogwarts, both classes and side assignments will be included, but many of the characters will be original to the game. (Others, such as Nearly Headless Nick, will appear.)

This game will be a single-player game and will not have online or multiplayer options. Dueling will play a central role, including many opportunities to customize a character’s combat style, talents, and skills to the player’s liking. Players will be able to loot, buy, and craft items, and they will be able to hone their skills in Potions, Herbology, and Care of Magical Creatures. Other gameplay elements, such as broom flight, were shown, suggesting that this will make travel to locations beyond Hogwarts – including multiple wizarding hamlets – easier in the open-world structure of the game. Similarly, players will be able to make friends with other students, have them as companions, and learn their stories.

Other answers of note include that Hogwarts Legacy will have accessibility features for players who require them, but additional details on those features are yet to come.

Hogwarts Legacy will be available on multiple platforms, including PlayStation5, PlayStation4, PlayStation4 Pro, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One consoles, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Hogwarts Legacy will be released on:

  • February 10, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (with 72 hours early access for the Deluxe Edition)
  • April 4, 2023, for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
  • July 25, 2023, for Nintendo Switch
