Hogwarts Legacy: New Battle Details and Spells!

Intrigued by the use of Unforgivable Curses in Hogwarts Legacy: The Hogwarts Legacy? The game's community manager returns to this central element of the gameplay by giving much more detail on the magical effects of these Dark Arts spells.

Avada Kedavra, Endoloris or even Imperio! Here are three spells that potterheads know by heart but which are forbidden to use as we are taught in the Harry Potter saga. However, in Hogwarts Legacy Hogwarts Legacy, we could see that our character could throw them all the way. Deliberate choice to borrow the voice of darkness or possibility of gameplay?

How will Unforgivable Curses work?

Shown in detail during the second Gameplay Showcase, the Unforgivable Spells seemed very easy to use just like the rest of the spells. Chandler Wood, the game's community manager, came back to this potential ease of gameplay.

  • The demonstration was carried out by one of the developers of the game: if the fights seemed "simple", it is only because he had already played hundreds of hours and knew perfectly well what he was doing,
  • Unforgivable Spells all have control effects when cast: Avada Kedavra can apply the Fear effect on enemies, Cruciatus can stun and paralyze opponents for a few seconds, and Imperio can control an enemy to fight at your sides.

  • The Forces of Evil combat arena (offered as a bonus for purchasing the Deluxe and Collector's editions), effectively allows you to use the 3 unforgivable spells as "tests". To unlock them , it has nothing to do and it's optional. Impossible to learn the death spell from the start of the game of course. You will have to progress in the story and make choices (like following Sebastian Pallow for example and learning Cruciatus),
