News | New Hogwarts Legacy Cutscene Shown

A new cutscene from the upcoming Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy has appeared online.

The software company Autodesk recently held an Autodesk Vision presentation, showing how Autodesk Maya and MotionBuilder are used to create cutscenes in Hogwarts Legacy.

The images are intended for developers, but can now be viewed online – see the tweet below. The video shows two wizard students watching wizards try to keep a hippogriff in check. During the presentation, it was also briefly shown how players can shape their own character in-game.

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.

Hogwarts Legacy is set to release around the holidays this year on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.


News | Contents of various editions of Hogwarts Legacy leaked

The content of several editions of the upcoming Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy has appeared online.

A Reddit user found hidden files on the game’s website, indicating that the game will likely come in a Standard Edition, a Deluxe Edition, and a Collector’s Edition.

The standard edition logically only contains the game. The Deluxe Edition also includes a Thestral Mount, the Dark Arts Cosmetic Pack, the Dark Arts Battle Arena, the Dark Arts Garrisson Hat, the Kelpie Robe and 72 hours early access to the game. The Collector’s Edition includes all of the above as well as a Steel Case and a Floating Ancient Magic Wand with Book. The latter may be a physical object instead of the aforementioned digital extras.

The above special editions have not yet been officially announced.

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.

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.
