PostHogwarts Legacy (Harry Potter game) - PS5, XSX, PS4, XBO, PC - 2021

Hogwarts Legacy, a Harry Potter game set in the 1800s.
Developer = Avalanche
Publisher = Warner Bros.


Looks like it will be an action RPG (light).

“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.”

I think it might be time for JK to do a George Lucas and just sell the IP, with some conditions like no film remakes for x years or whatever. She's a walking, talking liability.

Robbie Coltrane defended her earlier in the week. He should shut up, too.

Anyway, game looks alright - God of War vibes from the Troll fight scene.

Looks fun and I feel a bit bad for the devs who haven't done anything wrong, but I'm just not gonna give J K Rowling any money.

Looks actually pretty good. That flying shot looked particularly impressive. I'll rent or buy used, if it reviews well.

I don't care what anyone says, he will always be my hero because of Taggart and for playing Fred in The Flintstones movie.

Quote taken from Xbox Series thread but too good to let it languish there.

I never thought of it like that but that's a great description. I love Bully and hopefully Hogwarts Legacy does also focus on the whole boarding school character stories. I watched the trailer again and it really promises that you live your own version of the Harry Potter story.

Death of the author doesn't work here. If you buy this game you're directly supporting a transphobe and the transphobic culture they propagate.
