Every Potterhead remembers the infamous incident where Harry caught the golden snitch with his mouth, and won the Quidditch final for Gryffindor. As exciting Quidditch is, sadly you won’t be able to play it in the upcoming Wizarding World Game; Hogwarts Legacy.

The game is set to release in a month and fans are looking forward to revisiting familiar places. One aspect of those familiar places would be the Quidditch ground, but game states, “Quidditch is not playable in Hogwarts Legacy. However, broom flight for traversal and broom race challenges are part of the game. Players will also fly brooms to explore new and familiar locations surrounding Hogwarts Castle.” 

The Harry Potter universe has tons of features it boasts, but Quidditch is not one of them. Nevertheless, it will contain a ton of spells, potions, creatures and quests that every Potterhead is familiar with. 

We’re not far from the long awaited release of the AAA game, and can’t wait to dive in and explore the mesmerizing realm of Hogwarts. The game is said to start off with a personalized character creation, which will allow you to tailor design your character that you’ll be using for the whole journey.

According to the gameplay footage released, all 4 houses will have immersive common rooms. Gryffindor features a mesh of their iconic red and gold colors, with the common room having an entrance most Potterheads will be familiar with; whereas, the Slytherin common room is, as expected, in a dungeon, with their dull green and silver colors. A house tour for all 4 houses can be found below;

The game is also set to feature a plethora of spells, all for the player to use, which includes dark magic and even the Forbidden Curses. Gamers will be able to use Avada Kedavra and Crucio on foes, although it might affect their story progression. Magical duels will be a regular occurrence in the game, and it will also feature boss fights, where players will have to, carefully, choose what spells and potions they can utilize to ensure a win. 

The Wizarding World will include quite a lot of magical creatures (or as we like to call them; Fantastic Beasts) too, that users will be able to interact with and see all their wishes come true when they travel on the majestic Hippogriffin. It is unclear how accessible all the creatures will be, though, since according to the official website of Hogwarts Legacy, some creatures will be tameable. Even if all creatures aren’t interactive, it’ll be nice to spot a familiar Bowtruckle somewhere in the woods.

Most fans of the game have probably graduated by now, but will be able to attend classes in the game to progress their story and learn new, important skills that will aid them in duels and other situations. The long awaited game will indulge players by making them participate in making potions or learning about new fantastic beasts and their usage, or even learning how to defend themselves and strike back in a fight, in the Defence Against The Dark Arts class. 

Quidditch, the popular game from the Wizarding World universe, will be a part of the game and players will be able to learn how to ride a broom. They will be able to compete in races, challenges or even be able to explore the magical world on a broom. 

The icing on top is that the Room of Requirement will be an actual part of the game and players will be able to make full use of it. It will grant players the ability to craft potions, upgrade gear and will also offer other equipment that will help in the storyline.

It all boils down to this, a month left to a game that has built up an insane amount of hype and all Potterheads have huge expectations from it. Let us all hope, in unison, that the game lives up to its hype and is a huge success since it has become one of the most pre-ordered games, ever.
