A new leak on Reddit has brought the Harry Potter RPG rumours back to life after a long period of silence.
This new RPG hasn’t even been officially announced yet, but there is already a wealth of information about the game, which Disney Infinity maker Avalanche Software has apparently been developing since 2017.
The Reddit leaker claims to be working with publisher Warner Bros, and has let slip on some of the key components of the game.
As for gameplay, the players will reportedly be able to customise their characters and get to decide if they are muggle-born, pure blood or half-blood.
Your character is rumoured to be a fifth-year student who has transferred in from another wizarding school. You will also be able to be sorted into one of the four houses and each of these will have their own unique quest line.
It seems the timeline plays out after Harry Potter’s children have already graduated from Hogwarts and so won’t include Harry Potter himself but there will be an appearance from various characters from the books.
There will be four main areas in which gameplay takes place, although Hogwarts, Hogsmead, and The Ministry are the only ones the leaker seems to know about.
The leaker “VapeThisBro” has offered us a description of gameplay, which includes some back story into the game’s mechanics.
“Set in the 19th Century Wizarding World, this third person open-world action RPG game centers around your character with unique abilities who has eared (sic) a late acceptance to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You are a newly arrived 5th year student to Hogwarts that demonstrates a latent gift for magic with a unique ability to track and identify remnants of a pottant (sic) ancient power.
Upon arrival, strange events begin to materialize In the Forbidden Forest and trouble begins o (sic) brew within the castle walls. Together with Professor Elezar Fig, you embark on a journey through both familiar and never before seen locations to bring to light the truth behind these mysterious occurrences.
On your quest you will craft potions, master new spells, and discover fantastic beasts. You will battle Dark Wizards, Goblins, and other supernatural enemies and uncover the truth about your destiny – the Fate of the Wizarding World lies in your hands.”
Apparently, there will be a nemesis system in place. Enemies can be beaten, killed, or even turned into an ally. It’s also said that the game won’t be for children, as it gets quite dark.
It has been rumoured that you will even be able to romance people that you will end up marrying.
For a rumoured leak there is a lot of information surrounding this game, which makes it plausible to think that these rumours are based on at least some form of truth and hopefully we will be seeing this game’s announcement very soon.
