What is known at this point about the map that the player will traverse in Hogwart’s Legacy?
Hogwart’s Legacy is a game set in the Harry Potter universe, which will allow the player to explore locations not shown in the movies or books. Its release is scheduled for February 10, so in less than a month.
The developers have been releasing videos from time to time, featuring gameplay snippets as well as concept sketches. One, in particular, has caught the attention of fans, as it shows how huge the game world is.
Hogwarts and much more
Although the title of the game mentions the name of the school where the action of both the books and the movies takes place, the game will go much further. Among other things, it is known about the Forbidden Forest or the village of Hogsmeade. In one video that reveals a bit of the game’s production secrets, you could get a look at the huge map. Considering the fact that you can’t find Hogwarts or Diagon Alley, which are known to appear in the game, this is just a fragment of it.
The developers assure that the game will be really unique because according to the director, everything that can be seen on the screen will be possible to explore. Thus, a thorough look at every nook and cranny of the map can take a really long time.
The official Youtube channel makes it even more apparent how expansive the world the developers plan to put in the hands of players is. ASMR’s series of videos include one titled “A Calm Autumn Morning.” Looking at the landscapes, you can see that virtually every shot has something you’d like to approach and interact with in some way.

Key locations to find in the game
In addition to traversing majestic green landscapes, Hogwart’s Legacy will feature many locations familiar from the Harry Potter universe. Although not all of them are known until the game’s actual release, quite a lot can be deduced from the materials published by the developers so far.
Which locations could be learned about from trailers at this point?
- Hogwarts Castle
- Forbidden Forest
- Hogsmeade village
- Hogsmeade Station
- Diagon Alley
In-game map and fast travel
During the game, the minimap will be located in the corner of the screen, but it will be possible to turn it off to improve immersion and get a better feel for the magical world. It has also been confirmed that fast travel will be available in the game. All you have to do is approach one of the marked locations, and then use Floo powder to move to the previously discovered point.
At this point, not much more is known about the game world. What is certain, however, is that whether the player prefers to stay within the walls of Hogwarts or perhaps wants to wander far beyond them, he will certainly not be bored.
