Hogwarts Legacy: tons of info
If unfortunately we still haven't had the right to the long special Fall ASMR trailer (it won't be long), the week has still been loaded with information for Hogwarts Legacy Hogwarts Legacy. Here's what you shouldn't miss.
A very mysterious PEGI in some countries
If the ESRB has been formalized in most English-speaking countries (meaning that Hogwarts Legacy is only authorized for teenagers, from the age of 15), France is one of those who have not yet displayed a final PEGI rank. On the one hand we are shown a PEGI16 on the game's site, on the other the PlayStation and Xbox sites display a PEGI12 explaining that the violence will be light and "fantastic". What to sow doubt as to the darkness of the game.
Exclusive visuals on the PlayStation site
In addition to showing us gifs of the four Hogwarts house fireplaces , the official PlayStation site has been updated with detailed information on exclusive Sony bonuses. As a reminder, if you pre-order the game on PS4 or PS5, you will have exclusive access to a quest but also to other gifts such as the Felix Felicis potion recipe. In the article below, you will find all the details including the image of the shop that you can get in Hogsmeade.
