“Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world action RPG set in the world first introduced in the Harry Potter books,” according to Warner, which is publishing the game under its Portkey Games label.
“Players will experience life as a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s as they embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world.
“They will grow their magical abilities by mastering spells, brewing potions, taming magical beasts and more.”
Elsewhere in the FAQ, Warner said Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t support online or co-op gameplay and doesn’t have in-game purchases or microtransactions.
It also commented on Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s level of involvement in the game.
“Each experience offered under Portkey Games will take place in the wizarding world and will be authentic to it. J.K. Rowling is supportive of Portkey Games and has entrusted the design and creation of the games to Warner Bros. Games and the developers involved,” it said.
“Her team have also collaborated with Warner Bros. Games on all aspects of Hogwarts Legacy to ensure it remains a true part of the Wizarding World experience and is in line with the creativity and magic that fans expect.”
