Hogwarts Legacy early access reactions: Twitter is impressed with Harry Potter RPG

It’s been over 25 years since the wizarding world of Harry Potter came into being courtesy of author JK Rowling and the fandom has only increased with time. Now, a video game — Hogwarts Legacy — set in the Harry Potter universe introduced in the books will release on February 10.

Although this isn’t the first Harry Potter game to be released, Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action role-playing game (RPG) that has excited video gamers and Potterheads alike.

The mystical RPG begins with the user starting at Hogwarts in the 1800s, as a fifth-year witch or wizard (as seen in the official trailer). The player will be doing almost everything – from learning spells in regular classes to fighting trolls and conjuring enchanting potions.

Check out the official trailer of Hogwarts Legacy right here.

Interested gamers can pre-order Hogwarts Legacy now. It’ll be available in two editions – Standard and Deluxe. Find out more details here.

Hogwarts Legacy: What is it all about?

Hogwarts Legacy

Those of you who wanted to witness the magic of Hogwarts since your childhood can now do so. According to the official website, the RPG would take you back to the 1800s in Hogwarts. You would enter the game as a student who holds the clue to a secret that has the possibility to wreck the wizarding world. It would be on you to take control of the wizarding world thereafter. You would be the one to decide your own legacy – and that’s exactly why the game says ‘Live The Unwritten’.

Here are a few things to explore once you enter the game.

Explore an Open World

You could discover the wizarding world at leisure. Wander through Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, the Forbidden Forest, and the surrounding areas.

Be the Witch or Wizard you want to be

Of the many things that had Potterheads excited was the sorting into a specific house. With this game, you would be able to experience that apart from learning how to cast spells, brewing potions, forging relationships, and taking care of magical beasts.

Experience a new wizarding world adventure

Needless to say, this RPG will be an adventure like never before. You would be able to experience the wizarding world and engage in battles with trolls, dark wizards, goblins and more villains threatening the wizarding realm.
