There is quite a bit of hype and anticipation building around the upcoming Hogwarts Legacy title. Players have been waiting several years now to get this game finally. Fortunately, the wait is nearly over, as Hogwarts Legacy is set to release this month. Of course, what better way to further build up the hype for this game than by delivering a new launch trailer? Today, thanks to the official PlayStation YouTube channel, we have the launch trailer, which you can check out in the video we have embedded above.
Hogwarts Legacy’s official launch trailer will help showcase a bit of the game, especially if you haven’t been keeping tabs on it. Within the game, players take the role of a late arrival to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, you won’t find Harry Potter or some of the characters you might have read about or seen in cinematic films. This title will take place well before the events of the Harry Potter narrative. Instead, you’re tossed back into the late 1800s. Players here will get to customize their unique student attending the school before embarking on the grand adventure.
We know that our protagonist holds an ancient secret, and it caused the school to allow this student’s attendance. Players will be starting up as a fifth year student and quickly begin their journey of learning magic. So far, we know that players will get to attend classes, learn magic and spells, and take on side quests. In fact, it’s said that there are over a hundred side quests available in this game. So prepare to lose yourself in the extra content that’s not directly involved with the main campaign storyline.
Meanwhile, those of you who are interested in visiting the legendary Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry will be pleased to know this is an open-world title. You’ll get to explore the school and its nearby grounds freely. Of course, as mentioned, we don’t have long to wait before we are able to get our hands on the game. Hogwarts Legacy is set to launch on February 10, 2023, for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series X/S platforms. Those on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch platforms will receive the game later on in the year.
