Think of yourself as a bit of a wizard? Hogwarts Legacy will give you all the tools required to prove it when it releases on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PS4, PS5 and PC.

Announced today by Warner Bros, Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world, action role-player that puts you right at the very centre of proceedings, as you attempt to create your own wizarding world.

Due to hit current and next-gen consoles along with PC in 2021, Hogwarts Legacy is set in the 1800s wizarding world, as players get to experience life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry like never before, living the unwritten and embarking on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.

In creation by those at Avalanche and published by Warner Bros. Games under the Portkey Games label, Hogwarts Legacy will be filled with immersive magic, putting players at the centre 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. Players will also encounter missions and scenarios that will pose difficult choices and determine what they stand for.

“Hogwarts Legacy gives players control over their own experience with RPG gameplay unlike anything else in the Wizarding World, which will continue to build fan appeal in the Portkey Games label,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Games. “Avalanche has brought to life this rich and deep world, full of action-packed magic, as well as a detailed, mysterious story to engage fans and gamers alike.”

“It’s such an honour to work on such an amazing franchise and the team is dedicated to delivering an authentic Wizarding World experience that both Harry Potter and RPG fans will enjoy,” said John Blackburn, Studio General Manager, Avalanche. “Hogwarts Legacy is so special because it allows players to immerse themselves in a new narrative that is filled with complex characters, and, of course, magic.”

As the climactic story plays out you’ll find opportunities to grow your magical abilities by mastering spells, brewing potions and taming fantastic beasts. Along the way, the chance to uncover an expansive world filled with perilous dangers tied to the wizarding world’s long forgotten past and an unusual ability that only you possess, will unfold. The open-world journey takes players beyond Hogwarts to new and familiar wizarding world locations including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.
