The upcoming Hogwarts Legacy by Portkey Games will be the biggest video game adaptation of the world of school-aged wizards. This new open-world RPG, which will let you enroll at the school for witchcraft and wizardry, is the most wish-listed game on Steam right now.
The story of Hogwarts Legacy transports players to the wizarding world around the 1800s, which is 100 years prior to the events in the Harry Potter books. In the game, you experience a new and original story where you play as a fifth-year student at Hogwarts who gained late admission because you possess the key to a dangerous “ancient secret” that poses a threat to the wizarding world.
Hogwarts Legacy transforms spell-casting into a third-person action experience where you cast spells in combat and perform dodge-rolls. To progress in the game, you must utilize the spells learned in class to overcome combat challenges and complete puzzles in Hogwarts and surrounding areas. Additionally, you can engage in potion brewing and herbology to produce items for combat such as scream-inducing Mandrakes and potent potions to throw at enemies.
