It has been everywhere! And I had to talk about this. A Harry Potter RPG videogame is on the way, and it looks amazing! just to make it clear, this is me, I.M Redwright, reacting to the news and giving my opinion and suggestions. There is still not a lot of information regarding this videogame.
This wonderful news was published on Reddit, where a user published the following post “Unannounced Harry Potter RPG has killing and unforgivable spells!” in this he linked to a youtube video where you could see a gameplay of this new Harry Potter videogame. Warner Bros blocked the video to avoid the leakage, but unfortunately (or maybe the opposite) it had already spread all around the internet. A lot of people think that the fact that the video was taken down by Warner Bros just proves that the game is actually being developed, which make sense. Just think about it, if it was a fake video why would Warner Bros want to take it down?
The leaked video is still on youtube so you can watch it here:
Funnily, in a previous post, I theorized about the stolen postcard on which J.K Rowling had written a short prequel story of Harry Potter and what would have happened if a true fan had stolen it. Similarly, the attention this videogame has thanks to that leakage will have hinted the producers how hyped Harry Potter fans are with this new videogame.
What will Harry Potter Magic Awakened be about
This videogame seems to be titled Magic Awakened. However, it seems it’s not the final title yet.
For what is known (which is not much, to be honest) you will be able to create your own character and play in an open world. As you can see in the video you will be to make potions and cast different spells. The story is also unknown but according to the leaked video, we will start this experience in Hogwarts.
There is no release date yet or available Platforms but I will update this post.
According to the leaked images and comments all around the internet, this is an RPG videogame. In this title, you will be able to choose your side, that is, Dark or Light sides. As it usually happens in RPGs you will have different classes to pick. RPG games usually have diverse class roles, such as healers, tanks, damage dealers…
How could class roles be adapted into a Harry Potter RPG?
Well why not the Hogwarts subjects? Just take it this way: in order to create your own character, you must choose the subjects you were good at Hogwarts, depending on your choices you might have a different role. That is, if you picked Defense Against the Dark Arts and Charms, for example, you could be a damage dealer, while if you pick Herbology and Potions you could be a healer. This would be a cool way to create unique and specialized roles, somehow each subject providing different abilities and spells. Just to be clear, this is pure speculation.
Just think about the possibilities! you pick the transfiguration spell and you can transform into an animal, or maybe pick Care of Magical Creatures and you could summon a magic companion! With Alchemy you could transmute substances for your advantage… see what I mean?
Well, what would happen if you pick Muggle Studies or History of Magic? I’ll leave these two for you!
What is expected from a Harry Potter RPG videogame
A lot actually! a lot of questions are yet unanswered: Will we be able to play Quidditch? Will the sorting Hat choose our House? Regarding this one, a YouTuber had a great idea, suggesting the Hat sorted us using the info available in our Pottermore profiles. Will we be able to visit other places aside from Hogwarts? Hogsmeade is expected, but what else?
What about you, what would you like this Harry Potter RPG videogame to include?
