Determined to show just how much Hogwarts Legacy will allow players to tailor their own Hogwarts experience, Avalanche Software released another meaty gameplay showcase this afternoon. This time, the showcase covered open-world traversal, the darker side of magic, and the Room of Requirement. Much like in the Harry Potter novels, the Room of Requirement will allow for enormous amounts of customization that will help the room fit your needs.
Second gameplay showcase released for Hogwarts Legacy
Fans craving more details after the release of the first Hogwarts Legacy gameplay showcase should be pleased with the latest thirty minute deep dive into more magical mechanics. Starting with open-world traversal, Avalanche Software not only displayed a seamless journey from Hogwarts to the areas around it, like Hogsmeade, but they also showed that you have a variety of options to get you around, whether that's flying on a broom or a magical creature, like a Hippogriff.
Combat options were displayed in greater detail in the Dark Arts Battle Arena. There, players can practice using Dark Art spells, particularly the unforgivable curses. During the fight, combat tools other than spells were also shown, as the character used a Venomous Tentacula plant and a Rock Skin potion to give themselves an edge in battle.
Finally, customization options for the player's base of operations, The Room of Requirement, were showed in full detail. Nearly every piece of furniture can be moved and recolored thanks to the Conjuration system. Even the room itself, like the design of the ceiling could be customized. The Room of Requirement also includes a fully customizable vivarium, a bigger-on-the-inside magizoologist's utopia, where magical creatures can be raised and cared for.
