News | PlayStation 5 Version of Hogwarts Legacy Featured

Sony and Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for Hogwarts Legacy. Here are the benefits of the PlayStation 5 version highlighted and explained.

The PlayStation Blog also goes into more detail about the benefits, which in some cases also apply to the Xbox Series X version – although this is logically not mentioned on the PlayStation site.

For example, the game runs on current gen consoles in a 4k resolution. One can choose between Fidelity and Performance modes – in other words, between a higher frame rate and more visual details. More information about the modes is not given in the blog post. Furthermore, the SSD drives in the consoles ensure that there are very fast loading times.

There are also several unique features for the game available on PlayStation 5. For example, the Tempest 3D AudioTech ensures that audio details are even more audible and it is clear from which direction they come. Logically, there are also Activity Cards on PlayStation 5. Furthermore, the DualSense controller needs to become “an extension of your magic staff” in the game. The haptic feedback should give the feeling of actually casting spells from the wand. The controller even lights up depending on the training players have chosen.

In Hogwarts Legacy, players control a fifth-year Hogwarts student. They explore the school and the world around it, learn spells, brew magic potions and fly on a broomstick. The game is set around 1800, so characters from the books and movies are few and far between, except for some cameos.

The game will be released sometime later this year on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

News | Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy Game Coming After Fantastic Beasts 3

The Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy will not be released until sometime after the release of the Fantastic Beasts 3 movie.

That’s according to a Toy World Magazine interview with Rachel Wakley, who is responsible for consumer products at Warner Bros, it has been spotted on Reddit. She reports that two major Harry Potter releases are in the pipeline in 2022: a movie and a game. Then she mentions the movie and the game by name.

It was already known that Fantastic Beasts 3 and Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022, but a release date for the latter has not yet been set. The third Fantastic Beasts movie, sub-titled The Secrets of Dumbledore, hits theaters on April 15, so Hogwarts Legacy should be out sometime after that in 2022. That’s still a very spacey period, but at least fans now know not to expect the game before April 15.

Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy  will release for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, and PC.

Warner Bros. reveals Harry Potter title Hogwarts Legacy

News | Harry Potter game coming to next-gen consoles next year

The highly anticipated Harry Potter game from Warner Bros. Interactive is set to release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in the fall of 2021.

Bloomberg claims this in a new report. The game is said to be in development at Avalanche Software, not to be confused with Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios. In addition to the next-gen consoles, the game would also come to other systems next fall, although it is not known exactly which systems are involved.

Images from the Harry Potter game leaked in 2018. According to Bloomberg, the video is authentic, but few of the rumors that have come out about the game since then are accurate.

Bloomberg claims that the developers of the game are shocked by the transphobic statements of Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling. This would have prompted internal discussions between developers. However, the writer is hardly involved in the development of the game.

Warner Bros. would have planned to announce the game at a press conference during E3 2020. However, E3 2020 was canceled due to the coronavirus. Warner Bros. would like to unveil a new Batman game during DC FanDome on August 22 and the Harry Potter game at an unknown later date.
