It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. - Albus Dumbledore, Chamber of Secrets. 

Each choice in the upcoming Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy RPG will directly impact your experience, as the developers have confirmed that every player will have a morality system which directly correlates to which missions become available. 

Set in the 1800s before the times of Dumbledore and any of the Harry Potter or Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them cast were born, Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy is set to launch in 2021, and will allow players to undergo missions throughout the wizardry universe, visiting places such as Hogwarts Castle, Hogsmead Village, Diagon Alley, and the Forbidden Forest. You will be able to learn and upgrade some of the classical spells and level up as you progress to becoming a more powerful witch or wizard.

As with most RPGs, the developers have confirmed that your decisions will help play out your own story and 'legacy'. Warner Brother Games Support stated on their website that "Hogwarts Legacy is filled with immersive magic, putting players at the centre of their adventure to become the witch or wizard they choose to be. They will grow their character’s abilities as they master powerful spells, hone combat skills and select companions to help them face off against deadly enemies.

"Players will also encounter missions and scenarios that will challenge their morality and determine what they stand for".

This means, that each and every choice could end up with you getting killed - or worse, expelled. 

It is yet to be known whether your early choices will directly impact the house you are sorted into, although Warner Bros. hint at there being some form of choice when the sorting hat his your head. Whether it's Slytherin or Hufflepuff, everything you do will define you Harry Potter legacy.

So, prepare to grab your Nimbus whatever-edition-they-were-on-back-then broomstick and your dragon heartstring wand to take on the most fearsome beasts and hone your sectumsempra to perfection.
