Travel to Hogwarts in the late 1800s.

In a PlayStation 5 video presentation, Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche revealed Hogwarts Legacy, a role-playing game (RPG) set in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

The game is set at Hogwarts in the late 1800s. Here’s a summary of the game’s storyline, straight from the game’s website:

“Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books. Now you can take control of the action and be at the center of your own adventure in the wizarding world. Embark on a journey through familiar and new locations as you explore and discover fantastic beasts, customize your character and craft potions, master spell casting, upgrade talents, and become the wizard you want to be.

Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.

Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.”

While Hogwarts Legacy was revealed as part of a PlayStation 5 video presentation, the game will also be coming to other platforms (specifically PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC). The game’s release date wasn’t revealed, though we do know it’s expected to be released in 2021.

Hogwarts Legacy also hasn’t been rated by the ESRB, but from the game’s trailer (and the “Harry Potter” theme), we’re guessing it will be rated T for Teen.
