Player choices will change the outcome of Hogwarts Legacy


Hogwarts Legacy will have action-based options and endings for players to unlock. Although the game’s release is still a few months away, fans have been somewhat satisfied with a 45-minute Hogwarts Legacy presentation, where game director Alan Tew provided more details on gameplay, gameplay, and mechanics. The release also confirms that players will have a lot to explore in the next Wizarding game.

The Hogwarts Legacy Showcase gives players the chance to preview some of the mechanics, such as character creation, a dive into how to fight, and a walkthrough of Hogwarts. The classmates of the students in 4 houses are also revealed in quite a bit of detail. Perhaps the recently mentioned select feature is a way to uncover the Harry Potter-related details fans are eagerly awaiting.

News about the choices and actions that will influence the game’s ending comes from a brief comment from Tew during launch. During the gameplay, the progress of the game has opened up more interaction options for the player to choose from when communicating with the Hogwarts NPC students. Tew says that “different interactions with different characters can also provide different choice points for players, and then some of those points can affect things throughout the game; even to the life of the character, the end of the game”.

It’s not surprising that an RPG would feature a selection mechanism for fans to explore different outcomes, but this is the first time such a mechanism has been implemented in a Harry Potter game of this scale. The developer’s decision to give players more control over their Hogwarts adventures could be groundbreaking and influence the development of future Harry Potter games. While not a new mechanic, choice-based games have been praised by players for years for adding more replayability and story content.
