Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer Avalanche Software shared a new Hogwarts Legacy cinematic trailer.
Warner Bros. also announced Wizarding Wednesdays have returned – every Wednesday leading up to Hogwarts Legacy releasing, they’ll have prizes for fans to win – like a vacation at Universal Parks & Resorts in either Orlando or Hollywood.
Here’s a blurb on the video:
Hogwarts Legacy Cinematic Trailer
The video immerses viewers in the world of Hogwarts Legacy, giving fans a breathtaking bird’s eye view of the castle grounds and beyond, while also extending an invitation for players to become a part of the magic and live out their dreams of attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
The cinematic follows an owl carrying the coveted invitation as it soars across the castle rooftops and over the heads of students in The Great Hall, providing an overhead view of some of the iconic Hogwarts locations that players will be able to explore. As the owl glides through the castle, fans will recognize some familiar names and faces, including Nearly Headless Nick and Professor Weasley. The owl’s journey also highlights some of the hidden dangers that players will face, as it narrowly avoids a horde of giant spiders in the Forbidden Forest, a deadly blast of Avada Kedavra from a masked wizard and a dragon’s fiery breath.
In related news – despite efforts by some on the internet to cancel the game over series creator J.K. Rowling’s personal beliefs – Hogwarts Legacy is Steam’s most-wishlisted title ahead of its near-release.
