Hogwarts Legacy: A Look Into The PlayStation 5-Exclusive Features [VIDEO]

Warner and Avalanche Sofware revealed via the PlayStation Blog what we could expect on the November 2020-launched Sony console.

 

Chandler Wood, Avalanche Software’s community manager, wrote, “A witch or wizard should never be without their wand. The PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller becomes an extension of your wand in Hogwarts Legacy. With so many spells at your disposal, the adaptive triggers allow for more flexibility in combat. You’ll feel the magical resistance at your fingertips through every spell, whether firing off a basic cast or summoning the strength for a more powerful charm. Spells will feel unique when you cast them, thanks to haptic feedback providing a direct connection between the DualSense controller and your wand. We’ve specifically isolated these effects to the right side of the controller to let the DualSense become an extension of the wand you hold in the game. And when you deflect a spell with Protego, you’ll feel the sizzling of the magic being reflected and absorbed by the Shield Charm.

Adaptive triggers and haptic feedback aren’t just limited to spellcasting and wand work, however. The DualSense controller lets you feel various events throughout the world, whether it’s crushing ingredients with a mortar and pestle in Potions class, feeling the screech of a Mandrake seedling, or flying through the skies on a broom or a hippogriff. The DualSense is your connection to the magic on PlayStation 5. We’ve also tapped into the DualSense controller’s light to give you a unique bit of personalization. When not flashing along with spells being cast or damage being taken, the DualSense controller lights will pulse with the colours of your Hogwarts house: blue and bronze for Ravenclaw, scarlet and gold for Gryffindor, green and silver for Slytherin, and yellow and black for Hufflepuff.

Visually, we’ve come a long way since the days of the beloved Hagrid on the original PlayStation. Hogwarts Legacy on PlayStation 5 lets you take in Hogwarts and the surrounding area in stunning 4K and a choice between Fidelity and Performance graphics modes. This choice will allow you to create your preferred experience, prioritizing a higher framerate or visual fidelity.

The PlayStation 5 console’s Tempest 3D AudioTech will put you right in the heart of the wizarding world. Hear the crackle of the fire as you cast Incendio, potions bubbling in cauldrons, and the uniquely detailed soundscapes of each environment to make you feel present. And if you play without headphones, you’ll be treated to additional immersive sounds through the DualSense controller speaker, like the soft flap of a Hippogriff’s wings and the effects of each spell you cast.

Additionally, expect the PlayStation 5’s ultra-high-speed SSD to provide quick loading times no matter how you move from place to place, whether you take the scenic route on a broom or fast travel via the Floo Network. We’ll also support the PlayStation 5’s Activity Cards and Game Help features. We’re thrilled to connect you with the wizarding world more immersively than ever before thanks to the PlayStation 5 and DualSense controller when Hogwarts Legacy launches Holiday 2022.”

Hogwarts Legacy will launch at the end of this year on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
