What a surprise! Some time ago (in April 2017) there was a rumor that Avalanche Software, responsible for the Just Cause saga, was working on a Harry Potter RPG, the wizard created by JK Rowling that has become a success in books and on the big screen. And today we wake up with someone who leaked a gameplay trailer of the Harry Potter RPG!
The quality of the video is quite bad (it is recorded with a mobile phone), but we can appreciate different aspects such as character customization, exploration, spell duels (and multiple spells), creatures, characters or even Hogwarts school. Magic and sorcery. In addition, the soundtrack is the same as we could hear in the Harry Potter films.
And if that was not enough, we also have a detailed description of what this supposedly new Harry Potter game offers.
Set in the 19th century (1800) of the Wizarding World, this open-world RPG action game focuses around your character, with unique abilities, which has been accepted into Hogwarts school of magic and sorcery. You are a 5th-grade student who demonstrates having a latent talent for magic, with a unique ability to follow and identify the trace of an ancient power.
Upon arrival, strange events begin to materialize in the Forbidden Forest and problems begin to arise within the castle. Together with Professor Elezar Fig, you embark on a journey through familiar places and never before seen to bring to light those mysterious events.
In your adventure, you will make potions, learn new spells and discover fantastic creatures. You will fight against dark wizards. Goblins and other supernatural enemies, and you will discover the truth about your destiny. The future of the Magic World is in your hands.
Travel to Hogwarts to become one of 8 different types of magicians.
Experience Hogwarts, make new friends, discover new secrets and change the destiny of the Magic World.
Enjoy a new spell system that allows infinite possibilities to master magic.
Explore the Magic World freely for the first time.
Choose your home and friends at Hogwarts, and decide to follow the path of good or evil.
Obviously, we cannot confirm that this game is real, or that it is the same one in which Avalanche Software has supposedly worked, nor can we be sure if it is a Harry Potter game for PS4, Xbox One and PC. But the video of this Harry Potter RPG is too elaborate to be fake. What do you think?
