A Hogwarts Legacy player has discovered a not-so-subtle easter egg hidden in the Chamber of Secrets.
The Hogwarts legacy takes players on a magical journey through the Wizarding World, complete with a captivating main story and a host of magical side quests to complete.
Potterheads will be able to see a number of famous places from the books and films, such as the Forbidden Forest and the bustling village of Hogsmeade.
However, the Chamber of Secrets isn't one of the rooms that can be accessed, but a Hogwarts Legacy player has discovered an Easter egg that indicates that the vault is still very much present beneath the school.
In Hogwarts Legacy, Basilisk roams the halls.
MaximRagey, a Twitter user, shared a video showing them exploring the Slytherin common room before they attempted to climb a difficult climb.
An enormous snake could be seen slithering past the top of the stairs, before bringing the player down as normal. The player immediately recognized the reptile as the Basilisk that guards the Chamber of Secrets.
Fans will remember that Harry Potter defeats the Basilisk in the second book and film using the Sword of Godric Gryffindor, before a memorable encounter with a manifestation of Tom Riddle.
Although Hogwarts Legacy is set around 100 years before the books' events, Salazar Slytherin actually created the Chamber of Secrets sometime after the tenth century, at which time the Basilisk was tasked with protecting it.
When the player character arrives at Hogwarts, the legendary vault would be hidden away in the school, so there's a good possibility that the gigantic snake may be roaming around the corridors during this time period.
It has been widely speculated that Hogwarts Legacy will be updated later on, so it remains to be seen if the Chamber of Secrets will play a role in any post-launch content. Long-time fans will surely appreciate this historical reference to Harry Potter.
