Even though the title is inspired by the Harry Potter universe, Hogwarts Legacy promises to be a very complete experience for fans of the saga, but it seems that there will be some activities that we will not be able to do, such as playing Quidditch, since it was recently confirmed that the magical sport cannot be practiced in the game. Check out the complete details below.
Hogwarts Legacy Confirms Quidditch Will Not Be Playable
Hogwarts Legacy is likely to be the best video game ever for Harry Potter fans due to its loyalty. The title is also highly anticipated due to the fact that it was scheduled for 2022, but has been delayed to February 10, 2023.
A wait that will probably be worthwhile also for the Collector’s Edition, in which there is even a flying magic wand, which, as easily predictable, is already being sold at crazy prices by touts all over the world.
Now, in a recent Q&A published by the developers on the official website, the team answered frequently asked questions about the upcoming video game.
These also include Quidditch, the most famous magical sport in the world of Harry Potter, and whether it will be playable or not. Well, you won’t like the answer very much if you are a fan of the saga:
Q: Is Quidditch playable in Hogwarts Legacy?
A: Quidditch is not playable in Hogwarts Legacy. However, broom flight for traversal and broom race challenges are part of the game. Players can also fly brooms to explore new and familiar locations surrounding Hogwarts Castle.
A real shame, then, given that a very important part of the world created by JK Rowling will be missing, and that players expected to actually be able to try. The hope is that it may arrive perhaps with a future update, perhaps a DLC expressly dedicated to the sport of magicians.
Recall that Hogwarts Legacy will release on February 10, 2023, for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch release date still yet to be confirmed.
