The highly anticipated open world game inspired by the Harry Potter universe hits stores next Feb. 10 With its versions of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S and PC, and despite the fact that we are already at the gates of its launch, it seems that internally they are not having a good time at the marketing level.
They filter part of the map and more details
On the one hand, there is the issue of leaks. Unfortunately, a series of photographs taken from the game’s art book have appeared on Twitter, where you can see some details of the settings and decorations that we can enjoy in the game. In them you can see images of some super recognizable characters and settings, but it is the images of the character customization menu and the map that could do the most damage to the developers.
Especially the one on the map, since a first sketch of the whole world It lets you see the different areas that the world of Hogwarts Legacy will be made up of. There is also an image of a town made up of 20 stores that we can enter to buy things, so as you can imagine, we will have many options to explore.

What is known about the game?
It seems that a leaker has been putting on the boots in recent days, and has been sharing some pretty specific details of the game. At the moment, what is known is the following:
Each house may have different main objectives, although in the end they will have the same results. Only students from a particular house will be allowed to visit Azkaban. The Avada Kedavra spell will only be learned by completing the main story and in a fairly advanced side quest. The game is said to be 35 hours long, although 100% completion with all the side quests will require around 70 hours of gameplay. There are nearly 100 Merlin puzzles throughout the game. You will have to use the magic learned to complete them. It doesn’t seem like a Quidditch modality has been included, at least for now. The map was originally larger, but was reduced due to time constraints. If the sales of the game go well, they will possibly release DLC’s to continue enlarging the world. PlayStation will have an exclusive mission for 1 year that seems to be quite interesting. We will be able to fly near Hogwards castle, but it will not be possible to fly in Hogsmeade. The secondary missions will serve to improve the character, and sometimes it will be highly recommended to complete them, since it will take some experience or skill to advance in the story and finish off final bosses.
And meanwhile, a boycott
But far from the leaks that may come to light, the main problem facing the game distributor is the popular movement that has been generated on the networks, since many fans have decided to boycott the game and avoid it at all costs. . The reason? The mind behind the Harry Potter universe, JK Rowling, expressed your opinion against the trans community, ensuring that trans women are not women. Obviously her words turned the stomach of many, so there is a cancellation movement around the writer. That’s right.
The problem is that Rowling earns money from everything that has to do with Harry Potter, whether she collaborates or not, and even if she hasn’t minced a single line of code in Howards Legacy, she will get her corresponding commission. Hence, many are trying to do everything possible so that no one buys the game. Will they get it?
