Hogwarts Legacy game that lets you explore Hogwarts in 1800s DELAYED


HOGWARTS Legacy has been delayed until next year, disappointing wizard-gamers across the world.

Makers of the eagerly anticipated Harry Potter spin-off game say they simply need more time to finish it.

Hogwarts Legacy is an upcoming open-world action RPG

The game was first announced in September, with a view to launch in 2021.

But Warner Bros. Games has officially delayed the game to give it finishing touches.

“We would like to thank fans from around the world on the tremendous reaction to the announcement of Hogwarts Legacy from our Portkey Games label,” the studio said.

“Creating the best possible experience for all of the Wizarding World and gaming fans is paramount to us, so we are giving the game the time it needs.

The game lets you play as an up-and-coming wizard studying magic at Hogwarts

“Hogwarts Legacy will be released in 2022.”

The upcoming game is an action RPG set in J.K. Rowling’s iconic Potter universe.

Players take control of a wizard-student at Hogwarts, albeit in the late 1800s – rather than the modern day.

You’ll get to choose your Hogwarts House, go to classes, and (of course!) cast spells.

What’s unique and exciting about Hogwarts Legacy is that it promises an “open world” environment.

That means you’ll be able to freely explore famous fictional locations like Hogwarts, the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.

The game was first announced in September 2020 at a PlayStation 5 event.

But it’s expected to be multi-platform, currently slated for launch on:

  • PlayStation 4
  • PlayStation 5
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series S
  • Xbox Series X
  • Windows PC

The game is being built in the popular Unreal Engine, and looks set to be visually impressive.

There’s no firm release date just yet, however.

In other news, HOAR’s favourite alternative to a games console is the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset.

Grab a VR headset and you’ll be able to play the legendary Beat Saber – like Guitar Hero, but with lightsabers.

And Dell’s Alienware R10 Ryzen Edition is a gaming PC powerhouse that crushes both the new consoles.
