Hogwarts Legacy: Second showcase video shows off broom flights, vivarium and battle arena!
Hogwarts Legacy is due to be available on February 10th 2023 and we are already learning a lot about the open-world title in the Harry Potter universe, with a brand new developer showcase giving us a taste of the game. Be enchanted with footage of the broom flying, battle arena and more!
We've already had one showcase video for Hogwarts Legacy last month with plenty of gameplay scenes from the upcoming open-world game, which will be ready in February 2023 - after all, the developers served us a juicy 40-minute clip. Now the developers from Avalanche Studios have followed suit and talk in more than 30 minutes about the most ambitious project to date, which focuses on the students and the world around Hogwarts.
Broom flights, room decorations and your own petting zoo
The new showcase for Hogwarts Legacy gets straight underway with pretty, broom-clean scenes. Finally, real broom flights, and in a lush open game world filled with life. The devs present can hardly hide their enthusiasm. Flying low over forests, rivers and paths, lush green meadows, snowy areas, hills - we have never before experienced the Scottish landscape around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in such detail in a game. What's even better, you can even upgrade your broom in the course of the game, or get better flying machines. The clip also shows you flying on an Onyx Hippogriff, which we are including as a pre-order bonus.
Following the flying lessons, the gameplay presentation continues with the combat system of Hogwarts Legacy. Among other things, you will fight in the battle arena of the Dark Arts. Here, of course, the familiar spells from the books and films of the world of Harry Potter fly around your ears. Potter himself, by the way, has no presence in Hogwarts Legacy. But combos, cooldowns and crucio spells, under which your opponents squirm in agony. You want it too!
Those who want to let off steam in decorating can also do so in the open-world game. The tour through the Room of Wishes shows it: Here you don't just brew potions and water plants that have a supportive effect in battles - in your own domicile there is also room for your own design wishes. Modify the architecture of the (unusually luxurious) accommodation, conjure up carpets and other furnishings. New clothes are created on the magic loom. You can add magical properties to them at will and thus completely individualise your appearance in Hogwarts Legacy.
You can relax in your own vivarium, your foster home for all kinds of strange creatures. Here you can care for, nurture and stroke your monsters and "fantastic animal creatures". These creatures will in turn provide you with useful ingredients and skins.
