Hogwarts Legacy sales amounted to almost $114 million in the first week of release on Steam
The developers of the new open-world role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy offer to take on the role of a wizard in Hogwarts in the 1800s, just like Harry Potter. The game takes place in the world that was first introduced on the pages of the Harry Potter books, but players will have to experience something that is not even in these famous editions.
Players can choose their character, a Hogwarts student, and embark on adventures that involve brewing potions, learning spells, exploring Hogwarts, the Forbidden Forest, and Hogsmeade, fighting wizards and goblins, and uncovering the hidden truth of the past.
Hogwarts Legacy was released on Steam on February 10, 2023. It was developed by Avalanche Software, and Warner Bros. Games took on the publishing duties.
