Bring your home and your wand with you into the game!
Tired of hearing about Hogwarts Legacy Again? Well, there’s more! The newest and most interactive game in the Harry Potter The franchise is improving its customization options by allowing players to link their Harry Potter Fan Club accounts to their WB Games accounts. This means that in addition to being able to customize your character and explore the open-world version of Hogwarts, Hogsmeade and the Forbidden Forest, you’ll also be able to bring your Hogwarts wand and house. Finally, Ravenclaw can take the lead.
In the Tweet below, the Hogwarts Legacy The Twitter account gives you a link with instructions on how to link the two accounts. They also show you the exclusive in-game perks you’ll receive if you link your accounts, including a Fan-atic House school dress and a beaked skull mask. Every good witch or wizard needs a good beaked skull mask after all.
Hogwarts Legacyas we mentioned above, aims to be the most fun and interactive Harry Potter outside of physically being at Hogwarts. The storyline will be set in the 1800s, long before Harry and Friends, and it won’t be based on JK Rowling’s writing. The original story will have you creating your own character, taking the courses you’ve always wanted to take, and then putting everyone in the wizarding world in danger. Let’s be honest, it wouldn’t be the Hogwarts experience without that last bit.
The good news doesn’t end there. The official YouTube page of Hogwarts Legacy also released four separate videos, each showing the game’s common rooms for Hogwarts houses. Don’t worry, you won’t have to hunt them down. You can find all four built-in below.
First of all, Gryffindor! The typical star of the show, their common room is bold and grand. A large portrait opens into a room full of deep red and gold with wall to wall rugs covering the floor. Paintings decorate the walls as well as a stained glass window near the staircase. It looks cozy and friendly.
The Slytherin common room is a gorgeous green hue, like moonlight reflecting off emeralds. The door to the room is only revealed to the real Slytherins by a golden serpent arching up from the ground. The ceiling and floors are a classic stone which gives the room a cool to the touch feel, but there are still plenty of places to chat and study with your friends. The bone and snake decor is classic Slytherin.
Hufflepuff, of course, has the sunniest and most adorable common room! Enter through a giant barrel into the cellar to discover a bright, wooded room covered in hanging plants. It looks like a hobbit hole in the best way. Full of life and with a warm fireplace, it looks like a great place to be with your friends after class.
Save the best for last, join the smart and orderly house of Ravenclaw! A giant crow will let you in if you solve the puzzle. There’s smooth white marble around this round room with blue star-covered curtains draped around the windows. All around the room are tables and desks for studying with the fireplace in the center of the circular room. There’s a ton of natural light to read and a gorgeous ceiling covered in astrological symbology.
Whichever house you find yourself in, there’s plenty to be excited about. Hogwarts Legacy will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on February 10, 2023. It’s also available for pre-order now.
