WHAT IS THE PLOT AND SETTING OF HOGWARTS LEGACY?
Hogwarts Legacy will reportedly take players on an epic-scale wizarding adventure, but as far as the plot is concerned, we’re unfortunately still in the dark.
To help us answer this question, however, we’ve found the official synopsis for the game:
“Experience Hogwarts in the 1800s. Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart. You have received a late acceptance to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and soon discover that you are no ordinary student: you possess an unusual ability to perceive and master Ancient Magic. Only you can decide if you will protect this secret for the good of all, or yield to the temptation of more sinister magic.”
“Discover the feeling of living at Hogwarts as you make allies, battle Dark wizards, and ultimately decide the fate of the wizarding world. Your legacy is what you make of it.”
Pretty exciting, right?!?
