Game-plot and Game-play Hogwarts Legacy
Introduction with Game-play
Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player game will be set at the time of 1800s revolving around the students of Hogwarts. These students attend their classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. As per we know from the trailer that the game will start by each student getting selected as a wizard or witch in different Houses.
Your character in the school
While being in school you’ll have to do certain things and play as one of the character in school at the same time. Some of them are –
• one of the students reading and learning magic in this School.
• You will learn the magical spells,
• how to make different kind of portions,
• will learn how to fly with a magic broom. Yeah, you heard it right.
• Will meet different kinds of creatures some will be good while others, you know!
• You will master in fighting and other abilities.
Besides this their will be a lot of secret from which we are unknown. In addition to this you will meet with great adventure and danger at the same time outside the school. So be careful!
How much it resembles to Harry Potter Movie?
Although the game is from the famous book J.K.Rowling’s Harry Potter but you might will not meet with the Harry Potter here! Fans are getting confused because of this. There will be no Hermione Granger and Ron Wesley in this game. The story line is from late 1800s when they all didn’t born. During the time when the author’s original story of Harry Potter was not written.
Resemble with Harry Potter?
So you might ask me now, How much Hogwarts Legacy resembles with Harry Potter original story?
I would like to inform you that Hogwarts Legacy is a portkey game and portkey game are never matches with its book or movies. Moreover the developers of the game try to be true to J.K. Rowling and maintain the standard of the games by setting up the same things as they were in the movie like, the Hogwarts library, the talkative portrait, the magic flying candles and many more. They are same as they were in movies and books.
What are Portkey games?
From Warner Bros, firstly Portkey games is a title dedicated to the wizarding game in worldwide which is played on the mobile or PCs and secondly this type of game enables the player to create his/her own story and choices by engaging him to the magical world of Hogwarts. You will be the main character of thid story and also plays the center of your own adventure simultaneously.
Advantages for a player
Furthermore this game helps the player, gamer or a fans to experience the well-known world of magic at the same time allowing him to play himself because somewhere deep inside everyone is waiting for the owl to bring their Hogwart’s Letter *wink*
Portkey in Harry Potter
In Harry Potter series, Portkey is a magical enchanted item not only this but with the help of it anyone can transport within a second to the location where they want just by touching it. Furthermore the Muggle (normal Human being who aren’t able to do magic) cannot see the Portkey. It is just similar to a everyday object that will not catch anybody’s attention. That’s why the developers gave it a Portkey game because it will led you to the wizarding world and anyone will not be able to know.
Interesting things to notice in the Hogwarts Legacy.

• A little touch of Fantastic Beasts
If you are a fan of Harry Potter series then you will know what is Fantastic Beasts.
As we can see in the trailer of the game One student is seen to feed some wide eye cute Moonclaves. In addition you can also spot a troll, a hippogriff and a graphorn. Moreover the presence of Dragon will add more interest of the player to the game.
• Another Darker world
There is not a good game without a dangerous bad character. Likewise how you suppose that this game will not contain something like this? The Magical world is flop without a Darker world so the developers fulfill our this demand too. We can see Inferi (undead corpses) and Dementors (soul-sucking beings) in the game.
