You (Probably) Won't Be Able To Play Quidditch In Hogwarts Legacy

You (Probably) Won't Be Able To Play Quidditch In Hogwarts Legacy

It's wands (and brooms) up, as Avalanche Software and Warner Bros. Interactive have finally given us a real look at Hogwarts Legacy - ahead of a loose Holidays 2022 release date. The latest entry to the Wizarding World looks like it'll be a doozy, with the long-rumoured open-world Harry Potter game finally coming to fruition.

On March 17, Avalance gave fans a glossy 15 minutes of Hogwarts Legacy gameplay, that showed off everything from a villainous goblin rebellion to confirmation you'll be to kill your rivals with dark magic. Despite the Dark Mark of a certain She Who Must Not Be Named looming large in the sky, Hogwarts Legacy has the right mix of magic that made the old games great, but just a dash of something new. Sadly, an old classic has seemingly been hit with the Killing Curse.

Will Quidditch Feature In Hogwarts Legacy?

It just wouldn't be a Harry Potter game without being able to jump on the back of a broom and swoop around the grounds of Hogwarts. In Hogwarts Legacy it's much more than just tossing the Quaffle about with your mates, with broomstick riding being a way to travel around this massive realm.

Despite trips to Hogsmeade and the expansive grounds around the school, Hogwarts Legacy is still very much focused on life within the walls and your day to day classes. With this in mind, you might expect Quidditch practice to take the place of PE. As pointed out by PCGamesN, a sneaky line in the game's FAQ hints that Quidditch has kicked the bucket. 

The Hogwarts Legacy FAQ mentions  "broom races" and Flying classes to learn the ropes, however, there is no mention of actual Quidditch. The site has reached out to developer to ask for clarification, but at the time of writing, we wouldn't count on it. 

 

Could Quidditch Appear In Hogwarts Legacy?

Before you start screaming like a Mandrake, remember, we've only just scratched the surface of what you will or won't be able to do in Hogwarts Legacy. Only recently, the team reiterated that microtransactions WON'T be part of the game - after some thought the gameplay made them look likely. Elsewhere, it's been noted that the Quidditch grounds can be spotted at the 4'25" mark in the footage.

To be honest, some of us might be glad if there's no Quidditch. Those of a certain age will remember the pixelated days of PS1 Hagrid and being forced to play Quidditch in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. It was a frustrating way to progress through the game, so there's no love lost. Anyway, if you want to play Quidditch, dust off your old consoles and play 2003's Harry Potter: Quidditch World Cup. Leave the rest of us to practice our swish and flick in peace.
