Hogwarts Legacy is filled with immersive magic, putting players at the center of their adventure to become the witch or wizard they choose to be. They will grow their character’s abilities as they master powerful spells, hone combat skills and select companions to help them face off against deadly enemies. Players will also encounter missions and scenarios that will pose difficult choices and determine what they stand for.
"Hogwarts Legacy gives players control over their own experience with RPG gameplay unlike anything else in the Wizarding World, which will continue to build fan appeal in the Portkey Games label," said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros.

"Hogwarts Legacy is so special because it allows players to immerse themselves in a new narrative that is filled with complex characters, and, of course, magic.”
As the climactic story begins, players grow their magical abilities by mastering spells, brewing potions and taming fantastic beasts. Along the way, they will uncover an expansive world filled with perilous dangers tied to the wizarding world’s long forgotten past and an unusual ability that only they possess. The open-world journey takes players beyond Hogwarts to new and familiar wizarding world locations including the Forbidden Forest and Hogsmeade Village.

The Ascent is the only game that looks a bit next gen to me on XSX, although this is likely PC footage. (4 Hours ago)
[url] its quite something how detailed the 4K output is. (15 Hours ago)
Almost could pass like any other PS5 exclusive, even the "next-gen" effects that are starting to define the early output of nre engines (that smoke, debries, ligting/bloom) its very similar to Demon's (15 Hours ago)
whoa [url] this game looks really good almost a mismatch on the Series "cross-gen machine" X fuled with shit like Dirt and AssCreed. (15 Hours ago)
