In the first section of gameplay, the player, a student at Hogwarts Legacy School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the late 1800s, rides a broom and flies low over the open world. Landing over the Scottish Highlands and exploring settlements, players will meet a variety of witches and wizards and have the opportunity to participate in quests.
Players will then board the Onyx Hippogriff (a variant of the Hippogriff available for pre-order only) and travel across the snow-covered winter landscape.
In the Battle Deepening, players wearing the Dark Arts Cosmetic Set will walk through the Forbidden Forest and then ride the Thestrals to the Dark Arts Battle Arena. The Dark Arts Cosmetic Set, Thestrals Mount, and Dark Arts Battle Arena can be purchased exclusively for the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition or with the in-game Dark Arts Pack.
Players immediately cast the spell Avada Kedavra, which shows the enemy’s strength bar instantly dropping to zero. Players can also bring potions, plants, and other tools found in the “Room of Requirement” into battle to defeat enemies more efficiently.
The player visits the Room of Requirement
In the last video, the player visits the Room of Requirement. This room allows personalization of the entire space and allows players to change the architectural style by spellcasting objects. Spells can be obtained at “Tomes and Scrolls” in Hogsmeade or as rewards for completing various activities in the game.
Practical items such as flower pots and breweries can also be customized. Players can call up “looms throughout gameplay,” which can be used to customize equipment and add magical properties. Finally, players will move to the vivarium and take care of the Beast.
Grafton, Niffler, Kneazle, and Mooncalf will be available. Petting and feeding the beasts will give them magical materials to customize and upgrade their equipment. There will also be a toy box to play with the beasts, and the beasts can be given individual names.
