Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy open-world RPG announced for PS5

By Sean Carey,
The long-rumoured Harry Potter RPG has finally been unveiled. Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player open-world RPG that puts you in the shoes of a Hogwarts student in the late 1800s.


Developed by Avalanche, Players will be able to "add their own story" to the hallowed halls of Hogwarts, and "shape the future of the wizarding world." In the trailer, we see iconic Hogwarts locations such as the dining hall, potion labs and more. However, you won't be confined to just the Hogwarts grounds. While your journey will start off in Hogwarts, learning spells, attending classes, and taming some wild beasts, the trailer reveals that you'll be able to explore Hogsmeade and other far-flung places in order to unravel a dark mystery. "The choices you make now will define the legacy of Hogwarts," the trailer's narrator exclaims.

Hogwarts Legacy launches in 2021 for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4.
