Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software just released a new gameplay video for Hogwarts Legacy. This new trailer shows off another look at the spell based combat along with a look at the Room of Requirement.

The first section of gameplay shows a player character flying around the open world on a broom. The landscape is based off of the Scottish Highlands and the video showcases a hamlet full of witches and wizards. There are quests that can be continued and started in this hamlet, so you'll want to check it out on your adventures. The player then takes to the skies once more but this time on an Onyx Hippogriff. Suddenly, snow!

In a deeper dive of the combat, the player, wearing the Dark Arts cosmetic set, walks through the Forbidden Forest before riding a Thestral to the Dark Arts Battle Arena. The Dark Arts Cosmetic Set, Thestral Mount, and Dark Arts Battle Arena are available exclusively in the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition or for purchase in-game in the Dark Arts Pack. The player immediately casts an Avada Kedavra spell to show the enemy’s health bar instantly go to zero. Tools such as potions and plants from the Room of Requirement can be brought with the player into combat to help defeat enemies more efficiently.

In the final video, the player visits the Room of Requirement. The entire space can be personalized and the architecture can be changed as the player conjures objects into the space. Conjurations can be found at Tomes and Scrolls in Hogsmeade or rewarded for completing various activities throughout the game. Utility items like planting pots and brewing stations can also be customized. Over the course of gameplay, the player will be able to conjure the Loom which can be used to customize and add magical properties to their gear. And finally, the player walks to the Vivarium where beasts are cared for. A Graphorn, Niffler, Kneazle and Mooncalf are revealed. By petting and feeding a beast, they will give the player the magical ingredients needed to customize and upgrade their gear. A toy chest is also available to play with the beasts and the beasts can be given individual names.​
This was the second lengthy gameplay demonstration we were given following the PlayStation State of Play in March.

Hogwarts Legacy is expected to be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on February 10. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One release will happen on April 4. The Nintendo Switch won't get the game until July 25.

It's still being said from those making the game that known TERF, J.K. Rowling, had little to no involvement on the development of the game.
