Following a heated internet controversy, JK Rowling’s wizarding universe got a major video game adaption in Hogwarts Legacy.
Some Harry Potter enthusiasts have had their hearts set on an open world adventure game for a while.
Others, though, are urging a boycott due to Rowling’s public remarks on transgender issues.
In spite of the controversy, some believe it will be the most popular premium release of 2023.
The amount of individuals who have seen streamers play preview copies of the title has already broken records. According to reports, 1.3 million individuals were reportedly viewing game-related material on Twitch at one point.
Some have resisted the boycott, claiming that playing the game does not obligate one to agree with the author’s viewpoints.
In the game, players go to the same school that Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, and Hermione Granger attended, although it is set in the 1800s rather than today.
You can fly around on a broomstick, discover the castle, learn how to cast spells, battle enormous spiders, and gather a variety of hats and scarves to wear as you go.
