Hogwarts Legacy, the upcoming action role-playing video game, promises to offer players an immersive experience with over 100 sidequests.

However, these side activities won’t simply be a distraction from the primary campaign but will instead impact the story.

According to Narrative Director Moira Squier, the game will allow players to tell their own version of the story by allowing them to make choices throughout the game. She stated:

“The main storyline is complicated and engaging and involves a variety of different characters and viewpoints, but by giving the player choice moments throughout the game, we allow them to tell their own version of that epic story.”

Moreover, even the sidequests will allow players to manipulate the main campaign through the experiences they’ve had.

Players' interactions with characters in sidequests will impact how they interact with them in the main storyline and vice versa.

The order in which players choose to complete these quests will also impact their story and game. Everything is interconnected.

Another key feature of the game is that it will give players the freedom to embrace evil or darker magic if they choose to do so. Lead designer Kelly Murphy stated:

“It was important for us to give players who sought out to be a Dark Witch or Wizard an opportunity to do so. This is the ultimate embodiment of role-playing: allowing the player to be evil. Additionally, this was important because it comes from a place of non-judgment by the game creators. If you want to be evil, be evil.”

The game will also allow players to use the Unforgivable Curses, a trio of spells that are so sinister and forbidden that in the Harry Potter novels, using any of them meant a one-way trip to the Azkaban prison for life.

However, in Hogwarts Legacy, players will not be punished for using these spells. Murphy stated:

“Characters will react visually and audibly to seeing the player cast an Unforgivable, but we don’t have a morality system that punishes them for doing so — this would be too judgemental on the game maker’s part. But, should the player continue these actions, the world will reflect back knowledge of them.”

While some may argue that the use of these spells by literal children should be met with judgment, the game’s creators have emphasized the importance of giving players the freedom to make their own choices, and the game will not impose any moral punishments on the players.

Hogwarts Legacy is set to launch on February 10th and is currently one of the most wish-listed games on Steam.
