Harry Potter open world action-adventure Hogwarts Legacy official key art

After a whole bunch of teasers, previews and even a lengthy delay, the Harry Potter themed open world adventure Hogwarts Legacy has now finally arrived. As you might guess from that brief description alone, Hogwarts Legacy is all about exploring every nook and cranny of the castle grounds and the world beyond, talking to an assortment of colorful characters, and naturally, blasting your way through problematic situations with an array of surprisingly satisfying spells.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted launch trailer. That should give you a pretty good idea of just what Hogwarts Legacy looks like and what it's trying to go for. Have a peek:

When it comes to its actual quality, I'm pleased to say that Hogwarts Legacy is quite a good game, though definitely aimed at the fans of the Harry Potter universe. Those unfamiliar with the setting will likely still have a good time, but it's far harder to ignore some of the odd-sounding dialogue or occasional bit of jank if you're not riding on the waves of a massive nostalgia trip. Either way I'd recommend giving Hogwarts Legacy a closer look purely because of how, for the lack of a better word, magical the world itself feels!
