Less than a month before its release, Hogwarts Legacy introduces a new character – Hogwarts’ brilliant Professor of Magical Theory.
Hogwarts Legacy has introduced Professor Fig. He is the well-respected Professor of Magical Theory at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Due out on February 10 for PC and next-gen consoles, Hogwarts Legacy is the highly anticipated open-world RPG set in the Harry Potter universe at Hogwarts in the late 1800s.
Hogwarts Legacy will feature actors such as Simon Pegg (as Phineas Nigellus Black, whom we met as a painting in the books) and many others who will play the roles of the diverse and vibrant characters that populate the game world.
Many players are looking forward to seeing the fully dubbed characters bring Hogwarts to life. It already looks like a beautifully constructed world with different biomes and unique locations to explore.
According to a game account tweet, “Professor Fig knows more about magic than a wizard or witch might think,” and introduces him as the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry’s Professor of Magical Theory. He is described as a kind and highly knowledgeable teacher. He left his job at the Ministry of Magic to follow his wife around the world, who is researching the disappearance of ancient magic. But, tired of this research, he went to Hogwarts. But then his wife, Miriam, was killed on her journey. For this, he carries a guilt that he still carries to this day. Eventually, he is supposed to become one of the player’s greatest allies in the game.
As Hogwarts Legacy is confirmed to be Steam Deck verified, excitement and buzz for the game continues to build. Many Harry Potter fans have high hopes for this open-world adventure game. We’ll be able to engage in magical battles, tame some legendary beasts, and take on quests that will take us all over Hogwarts and the surrounding areas.
Fans have also been excited to learn that the Deputy Headmaster in Hogwarts Legacy will be a Weasley – a member of a family that featured prominently in the original Harry Potter books and films.
Hogwarts Legacy is set over a hundred years before the events of Harry Potter. This means that players will need to be on the lookout for Easter eggs and references to the original series, as these may be well hidden.
