During the last month of 2018, the gameplay of a new Harry Potter RPG game was surprisingly leaked. Many years have passed and we have had no official information about this new project. But, today a leak might have just revealed the name of this game, called Hogwarts: A Dark Legacy.
In a recently leaked information, we found out that the game, presumably in the hands of Avalanche Software, would already have a release window. The rumor gives us a rough idea of the mechanics, story, and other details of this unannounced RPG.
So, as per the information shared on Reddit, the game will be based on the Harry Potter universe, but will not bear the name of the popular wizard in its title. The game would be called Hogwarts: A Dark Legacy and it would allow us to be a student at Hogwarts.
The details suggest that in this new game we would start a course at the magic school and could progress until we graduated. The title would have a customization system with which we would create our character. We could choose our gender and if the protagonist can be a muggle-born, half-blood, or pure blood.
The leak also mentions that the game could reach a Mature classification due to the elements of romance that will be in the game, since it would be possible to get married. As for its narrative, Voldemort would not be the antagonist, instead, the central villain would be a Death Eater who would be in charge of a small group of wicked wizards.
The new Harry Potter RPG would feature a large world with areas from Hogwarts, Hogsmeade, The Ministry, and another undisclosed area. Also, a skill tree is mentioned that would allow us to learn new powers. There would be a total of 5 branches, but none would offer the possibility of learning prohibited spells.
Lastly, there will be some side activities like the possibility of playing Quidditch and a card minigame. Recall that, this information is not yet official, so it will be best to take this leaked information with a big grain of salt.
