You’re a wizard, PS5 fans – or at least you soon will be. At the PlayStation 5 event, Sony presented Hogwarts Legacy, a new adventure title in Harry Potter’s wizarding world.
Long rumored and developed by Avalanche Software (the team behind the Disney Infinity games, NOT the Avalanche) Studios behind the games Mad Max and Just Cause) is set in the 19th century and apparently offers you a living, breathing Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to play in.
