Upcoming Harry Potter Game Will Feature a Morality System

Published 11/02/2020, 1:37 PM EST

Although the line of Harry Potter games has had its own cult following, the community was somewhat tired of seeing the same old format in every title. In a nutshell, HP games lost their charm soon after the first few installments, when it started to get really repetitive. However, Portkey Games recently announced an upcoming RPG title set in the HP universe, called ‘Hogwarts Legacy‘.

Recent insights have shown exactly how different Hogwarts Legacy will be from its predecessors. For starters, it is not based on any book from the series. The events in the game take place in the 1800s, prior to the events in the ‘Fantastic Beasts’ series.

Hogwarts Legacy will feature a Morality System, something that RPG players are quite familiar with. Warner Bros. explained this at their recent Q&A session regarding the game.

“Players will also encounter missions and scenarios that will challenge their morality and determine what they stand for.”

Interestingly enough, the question of morality might also blend in with the ideals associated with the four houses at Hogwarts.
