​New Hogwarts Legacy Game Will Be Like Bully Meets Harry Potter, 'Leaks' Reveal

We still may have no release date for the forthcoming Harry Potter game Hogwarts Legacy, but rumours are starting to circulate about what we can expect from the magical PlayStation 5 release, with leakers comparing it to Rockstar classic Bully.

Based on the hugely popular franchise created by JK Rowling, the game will be set at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the 1800s.

"Your character is a student who holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart," a synopsis from PlayStation says.

"Make allies, battle Dark wizards and decide the fate of the wizarding world."

After being announced by Warner Bros and Portkey Games earlier this year, we were treated to an impressive trailer during the PlayStation 5 reveal, leaving Potter fans desperate to sink their teeth into a world of spells, potions and fantastic beasts.

As reported by LADbible sister site GAMINGbible, we're now starting to hear 'potential details' on the game, which have started to trickle through from leakers ahead of the unspecified release date.

Of course, at this stage such details are just rumours, as nothing official has been confirmed from Portkey, but we'll take it for now.

The information was shared by an unverified source on Reddit, whose only claim to legitimacy is that they heard it through a cousin's friend who's an engineer on the outside quality assurance team.

Yep, a hefty pinch of salt's required with this one, although some details in the post align with other leaks about the game.

The most interesting takeaway from this person's mate's uncle's dog is that Hogwarts Legacy is basically a lot like Rockstar's Bully, but with magic - something that's bound to get a lot of people excited.

They explain that you can interact with NPCs 'compliment / taunt them at your own discretion', adding: "Taunt someone too much and they will report you to a teacher, so get out of there or suffer losing house points."

The post also touches on a 'dark' story and a potential multiplayer raid system, which are two things we'd previously heard about from leaks before the game had even been announced.

It also teases that you can tame and ride animals - that feature would make sense, given that we definitely saw a wizard riding a Hippogriff in that reveal trailer.
