The producer and host revealed that Opening Night Live will include an ‘exclusive new look at Hogwarts Legacy,’ which hopefully translates to new gameplay. As mentioned, the Harry Potter-themed title was recently pushed to February 2023, having originally been pegged for Holiday 2022 launch.
Hogwarts Legacy is currently in development for PS5, PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One. The game sees players taking on the role of a student in their fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, where they battle against dark wizards, goblins and other fantastical creatures.
Unlike the Harry Potter series, Hogwarts Legacy is set in the 1800s and your character holds the key to an “ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart.” Throughout your adventure, you’ll intact with familiar faces including Nearly Headless Nick, The Fat Lady and Peeves, while attending classes, concocting potions and mingling with your fellow students.
GamesCom Opening Night Live kicks off on August 23 at 7.00pm BST/2.00pm EST.
