Hogwarts Legacy, the most highly-anticipated game of 2023, is nearly here. This new video game is set in the magical school of Hogwarts in the 1800s, around 100 years prior to the events in the Harry Potter books. Players control a fifth-year student at Hogwarts and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover the hidden truth of the Wizarding World. The game features iconic locations like Diagon Alley, Hogsmeade, and the Forbidden Forest, as well as Hogwarts Castle. Despite facing constant controversy, the game is already breaking sales records on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Unless it is a huge disappointment, it is poised to be one of the biggest games of 2023 by a wide margin.
