Hogwarts Legacy Trailer is Packed With Dark Magic

Hogwarts Legacy

Gamescom 2022 starts on August 24 and runs till August 28. This is the first time Gamescom will be in-person since 2019 as it was an online-only event for the past two years. To start the event, Geoff Keighley hosted a special presentation, known as Gamescom Opening Night Live, featuring over thirty games over the course of its two-hour runtime.

During Gamescom Opening Night Live, Avalanche Software gave fans a new look at Hogwarts Legacy. The trailer begins with a Slytherin student named Sebastian Sallow showing interest in learning about Salazar Slytherin and the Dark Arts. The video revealed some characters from Hogwarts Legacy talking about the pros and cons of using dark magic, which seems to be key to the main plot.

Sebastian Sallow and the main character cast Crucio, and the pair end up in a fight against a horde of skeletons. They utilize offensive and defensive spells in the battle, and it seems like the decision to delve into the Dark Arts will form the backbone of Sallow’s quest line in Hogwarts Legacy.

Hogwarts Legacy was scheduled to come out later this year but was recently delayed by a few months. The developer had rejected reports of any delay earlier in 2022 but eventually had to push the release date to deliver the best gameplay experience. It should be noted that the Switch version currently doesn’t have a set release date.
