Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world role-play game set in the world of Harry Potter. You control a wizard character who starts as a student at Hogwarts and then ventures out on a dangerous journey with a mystery to solve. You design your character, learn to craft potions, cast spells, upgrade talents, and develop enough power to survive in the wide world.

Set in the 1800s, your character holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have the rare ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. But will you, like in the game Fable use this for good or sinister ends?
Play involves joining as a fifth-year student who is able to manipulate powerful ancient magic. This soon takes you on a dangerous journey as you uncover secrets of the wizarding world. As you progress you grow your character’s abilities by mastering spells, potions and harvesting plants. Along with battling deadly enemies, you make new friends and school professors who help you on your way.
It's not an adaptation of the books and films but a story and world anchored in Wizarding lore inspired by J.K. Rowling’s world, in which players will find new and unexpected locations, characters and story elements.
