Hogwarts Legacy State of Play Announced

It doesn't for you, which is why it is what it is. As someone who is exhausted of these kind of games it doesn't speak to me. It looks like what i expected, pretty uninspired.

Not liking UBI-Openworlds is a bit different than critiquing a game because it isn't trying to reinvent the wheel.

Where is that thread?

The amount of people that literally said like one thing were fucking banned. Like there are posters in there literally warning others to read staff posts? SO follow in line or you get banned?

Like what the fuck? There was no mention of JK rowling so their souls will be intact if they fucking actually talk about a video game, god fucking forbid they be excited for a game they want to play.

LOL, it's funny that the mod's banning posts is the gaming world equivalent of Russia banning anything that goes against them

Game looks really magical no pun intented. I was asking myself if I could learn avada kedavra and walk the path of a dark wizard and got my answer later.
The fact that the other website can't talk about this game is the most dumbfuck asinine thing I've ever heard.
As expected. My self-ban request there was when they chose that it was fine to derail Last Night threads about it's tech.

Fucking lol, a couple of people starting to get banned now haha:

OFFICIAL STAFF COMMUNICATION
Sony is hosting a State of Play highlighting Hogwarts: Legacy. This is disappointing, due to JK Rowling's horrible transphobia (among other issues with her), but it's not surprising due to marketing agreements and whatnot. That being said, we're not hosting threads about the game. Additionally, we're not going to host discussion about it in this thread, either. Any attempts to dance around this will be met with moderation.


IN OTHER NEWS!

Looks really good! Looks like the game me and the missus wanted. HOPEFULLY no microtransactions or mobile stuff wait-for-your-potions-for-3-minutes-but-please-pay-now-to-access-them shit. Graphics looks nice! I am surprised they added so many locales, thought it was just gonna be Hogwarts and some surrounding areas, but here you can even fly a gryphon what the fuck.

Kyuuji is such an ass. Barely ever posts in the PlayStation thread but made a point to show up today during the SoP. Transistor is no better.
they knew exactly what they were doing… same with kyuuji in the gta threads after it released on ps5. bought the game to check out any transphobia

It looks decent.

I'm probably going to play it. I just hope it doesn't get released at the same time of juggernauts like God of War Ragnarok, BotW Sequel, Starfield, etc.

Combat looks a little off, but loyal to the movies, don't really know how how they could implement combat in the world of HP without turning it into Control or Gears of War.

Other than that, looks very crazy and packed with content, I hope the story is good, because they nailed in the world design here; could very well be a western Persona for school life sims.

Hopefully the broomstick movement is a bit more fun and dynamic than what they showed. Seemed to be very slow and just floating in a straight line

Should be able to go extremely fast, make manoeuvres and flips and stuff

Also big miss if they don't have a real quidditch game in there. But maybe they are saving that

Honestly? That was fantastic showing and give you a clear idea of what the game is.

Yeah props to the studio for that.
This was pretty much the perfect length, with plenty of gameplay and gives you a nice look at what to expect from the game.

I wish most games got something like this instead of endless short trailers or dev diaries

Hopefully the voice lines for the spells have a bit more punch in the final game. Looks pretty good though.

The voice acting for the main character sounded weirdly bad. Sort of tired and unexcited.
Hopefully it's just a placeholder.

It already has 4k option:
Interesting that no systems are show at all at the end, even though its multiplatform.

I'm probably going to play it. I just hope it doesn't get released at the same time of juggernauts like God of War Ragnarok, BotW Sequel, Starfield, etc.
Given all those are "grand" narrative games, this one will likely be a nice secondary game to switch to while playing those, kinda a softer lighter experience to go with the main courses of those other ones.

I like to always have 2 games I'm playing at any time, one for relaxing and one for narrative/excitement. Right now thats GT7 and Horizon.

It looks okay, but not really pushing me over the top. The environments look cool from an art perspective, but it definitely looks like a last gen/cross gen title.

I almost wonder if they should have gone with a different style than realistic because it just kinda gives the impression of being flat? Idk.


I'll probably check it out, but I'm not chomping at the bit for it.

This is really WB's success to lose. Watching the trailer again, it seems most of the game will take place at the school? Is the school meant to be that large? I guess if magic is involved it can be as large as it needs to be for gameplay purposes. Hopefully they don't slouch on the areas away from Hogwarts (the villages looked a bit meagre).

Lol regardless, this game will not be in any trouble.

I'm thinking they mean more in the "There really isn't any time to play any of this. . ."

. . .and yeah the 4K video is exactly what folks knew it would look like without being terribly compressed. The detail and artwork look off the charts.

They can really go in depth make every part of the castle and surrounding areas exploration. Changing events and things to do throughout the castle across the year

Smaller scale like Bully but tons to do

Played all the Harry Potter games on PS1 and PS2, but after that didn't see any of the movies or games. But this looks like the ultimate Harry Potter game i always wanted as a child. Definitely will keep a eye on this one, this looks solid as shit.

The game looks badass. I hope it delivers on good gameplay, character customizations, skill building, and overall RPG goodness. Maybe we'll finally get a Harry Potter game that isn't shit.
