Back To Hogwarts 2022 – A Look Ahead featuring Hogwarts Legacy
Posted by Megs

To celebrate Back to Hogwarts Day on September 1st, Warner Bros have released a new video with a look ahead at the Hogwarts Legacy game, releasing next February. They have also announced that fans can link their Harry Potter Fan Club account to a Warner. Bros Games account to import their house and wand into the game as well as receive exclusive items.

Based on the Harry Potter Fan Club’s official Sorting Experience, together with the Wand Ceremony, players can bring their authentic self into Hogwarts Legacy. Linking accounts will also unlock a Beaked Skull Mask and exclusive “House Fan-Atic School Robes” in game, a special set of robes so players can represent their Hogwarts house with style.   

Players can head to wizardingworld.com/legacyconnect to connect their account and receive the special in-game items when Hogwarts Legacy releases for PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. 

Additionally, there was a look at the entrances and interiors of the house common rooms at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  Starting with Slytherin’s entrance hidden behind a slithering arch of a stone serpent, through the lavish Gryffindor common room set in one of the tallest towers, and the warm, brightly lit Ravenclaw lounge, to the not often seen Hufflepuff common room bathed in natural sunlight through a skylight, players will have plenty to explore in the game.
