Unforgiveable Curses, mentions of Salazar Slytherin and dangerous magical creatures... the latest trailer from Hogwarts Legacy is here to show you just how dark your legacy could become.
The new trailer, which comes with accompanying art swathed in ominous green smoke, is all in celebration of the game releasing a Deluxe Edition, now available for pre-order alongside the Standard Edition of the game.
Pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition will grant you a special Onyx Hippogriff mount, as well as 72-hour early access to the game.
You will also receive access to a Dark Arts pack, featuring a Thestral Mount (you can spot this at the end of the trailer) and a Dark Arts-themed battle arena and cosmetics set. Those getting the digital Deluxe version of the game can also snap up a Dark Arts Garrison Hat for your character.
So, what else do we see in this new trailer? Well, we spot characters using Unforgiveable Curses for one, such as Crucio, alongside glimpses of eerie locations and darker magical creatures, such as trolls and even the Inferi. We’re sure you remember these horrific undead beings not-so-fondly from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
“The more we know about Salazar Slytherin and the dark arts, the more prepared we’ll be...” we hear in the trailer. “The Dark Arts seem harmless until it’s too late,” says one character. We all know of Salazar Slytherin’s sinister ways from the Harry Potter books. Will we learn more about the Hogwarts house founder and his relationship with the dark arts here?
Indeed, this footage from Hogwarts Legacy provides a glimpse of where a darker path of magic may lead, if you so choose. Perhaps it’ll be less of a choice and more something you find yourself falling into – with the game poised to challenge you in all sorts of ways as you make your way through Hogwarts. Will you find yourself in a situation using an Unforgiveable Curse, for example? Your legacy is yours to discover!
Hogwarts Legacy is available to pre-order here, alongside the upcoming Deluxe Edition.
Hogwarts Legacy will launch on February 10, 2023 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. The Nintendo Switch launch date will be revealed soon.
