Follow US


At a software producer”s online event, the developers of Hogwarts Legacy show glimpses of their game. Of course, these are now also circulating on the net.

The wizarding world is well hidden. At least after the gameplay reveal of Hogwarts Legacy in March 2022. Since then, there has been virtually no further official info on the open-world game in the Harry Potter universe, only rumours about a possible release date.

Fans thirsting for more, however, can now finally take a look at some new footage. We have the software developer Autodesk to thank for this, at whose (Online-Event) the developers of Hogwarts Legacy also appeared. There was a new scene from the game to see, as well as various pictures and additional information. We summarise everything for you.

All new game scenes and pictures

If you”re wondering what Hogwarts Legacy even is, here”s a quick summary: In the open-world role-playing game, you create your own wizard and visit the famous school of Hogwarts with him. In the process, you experience a story that takes place long before the time of Harry Potter and revolves around a goblin rebellion that is in alliance with dark wizards.

Short clip

Releasing a griffin: In a cut-scene we see how poachers prevent a captured griffin from escaping with spells. We now want to free the poor animal (which we apparently also know). The beginnings of the scene can apparently already be seen in the official gameplay trailer.

New images and character creation

Animations with Motion-Capture: During the event there was apparently also talk about motion-capture technology. We can see an image from the game and impressions of the recordings for the animations when opening a common room.

This is what character creation looks like: The fact that there will be a character editor in Hogwarts Legacy was already announced at the gameplay presentation in March 2022. However, it was not shown what it would look like. The Autodesk event now gives us a first glimpse:

Among other things, you can apparently select different presets and then customise them to a large extent. So you can probably choose different hairstyles, but you can probably also edit your face.

Name and house of a professor

Name and house of a professor: Who the professor with the hat and the lilac outfit is has already been the subject of discussion. Now it has also been confirmed by the developers” community manager: His name is Abraham Ronen and he belongs to the house of Slytherin.

(The clothes of Abraham Ronen remind of Dumbledore. Could the professor also be headmaster?)

What else is there to know?

If Hogwarts Legacy has passed you by or you want to brush up on your knowledge, you can check out the detailed gameplay reveal again.
