A New Hippogriff Encounter Cutscene in Hogwarts Legacy Has Been Revealed

A New Hippogriff Encounter Cutscene in Hogwarts Legacy Has Been Revealed ...

For years, Harry Potter lovers have been anticipating Hogwarts Legacy, and the wait is nearing an end. Although Hogwarts Legacy is without a release date at the time of this writing, it is still planned to be released later this year. So now it's just a matter of deciding what release date to announce.

While Harry Potter enthusiasts await the release date of Hogwarts Legacy, they may want to see a shot from the game that was shown at the Autodesk Vision Series. In it, the player character and a fellow Hogwarts student see a trio of wizards pelting a hippogriff with spells. As it turns out, the Hogwarts Legacy player character knows the hippogriff and wants to save it.

The Hogwarts Legacy player character tries to follow their classmate through a pair of massive doors, but they're locked out. They then decide to find another route, with the camera panning over to show a possible direction forward. It does seem to indicate that the Hogwarts Legacy player character will have significant relationships with the magical creatures they encounter during the game's story.

A hippogriff is a combination of an oversized eagle and a horse that is often unknown in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The hippogriff in Hogwarts Legacy might also play a role in the game, although followers will need to play through the game to be certain.

Another Amazon leak has suggested that the Hogwarts Legacy release date would be early December. That has yet to be verified, but a release date such as this would make sense. It would protect the game from other big names coming out at the end of the year, like God of War Ragnarok and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.

Hogwarts Legacy has one significant advantage over those games, and that is the fact that it is a multi-platform title. It will be released on Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, so Harry Potter lovers will be able to enjoy it regardless of their platform of choice.

Hogwarts Legacy is being developed for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
