Fellow Potterheads, there are only five months left to the release of Hogwarts Legacy

I'm sure most of us who grew up along with Harry Potter and the wizarding universe still wish our Hogwarts acceptance letters will one day arrive via owl.

Sadly, it may never come and we will never be able to be the wizard or witch we always dreamt of being. (Obviously, I know Hogwarts isn't real. Let a girl dream, okay?)

Luckily for us, a game set in the Harry Potter universe is in the making and will be released in February 2023

Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player roleplaying game (RPG) set in the 1800s, way before the book series' timeline and based on an original storyline from Avalanche Software. (No, we won't be meeting Harry Potter or any of the Golden Trio in the game T_T )

You'll get to play as a Hogwarts student experiencing life at the esteemed wizarding school and make choices that will shape the wizard or witch you become. 

Let's all solemnly swear that we are up to no good and take a look at seven things we can look forward to in the game:

1. The Common Rooms are fully based on the books and are so detailed that I wish I could teleport there right now

Slytherin's entrance to the common room is hidden behind a stone serpent. HOW COOL! Just like in the books, Slytherin's common room is situated beneath the Black Lake, making it all dark and scary.

The iconic Portrait of the Fat Lady that guards Gryffindor's common room got me holding in tears of nostalgia. Gryffindor's common room looks absolutely majestic with its red and gold colours.

Fellow Ravenclaws will have to answer riddles to enter the common room. Food for thought, y'all, no pressure. Ravenclaw's common room gives me dark academia vibes, with the many bookshelves and gorgeous marble statue.

Entrance to Hufflepuff's never-before-seen common room. Tell me, why did they never show the Hufflepuff common room in the movies?!

...Aaaand, suddenly I'm a Hufflepuff. Seriously, look at all the pretty plants and natural lighting. I'm almost sad this isn't a real place. (Actually, really sad.)

2. The gameplay immerses you in a true wizarding world experience, complete with duels against foes, magical monsters, and even friends (if you choose that path)

3. You can customise your character using the available game features, so it's up to you whether you wanna be yourself or create a new wizarding persona

4. We also get to explore all the iconic places from the Harry Potter universe, like Hogsmeade and the Forbidden Forest

I wonder if we can get Butterbeer in the game...

5. Not to forget the highly anticipated classes, or maybe that's the Hermione in me, where we can learn to make potions and spells to use in duels

6. There are magical creatures for you to befriend or make an enemy of, like the Hippogriffs and Graphorns

7. And finally, you can even fly anywhere by broom

I don't know about you, but I absolutely can't wait for the release of the game
