Harry Potter RPG Release Date, Gameplay News And Leaked Trailer

Screenshot from the leaked Harry Potter game trailer
Apparently JK Rowling will have "very little direct involvement" in the upcoming Harry Potter RPG.

We've known that a massive Harry Potter RPG is on the way for years - and we've even seen leaked gameplay footage - but still nothing has been officially announced.
The untitled Harry Potter game was first leaked back in 2018, and is under development by Disney Infinity devs Avalanche Software. We're expecting an expansive role-playing game with an open-world Hogwarts to explore and the chance to create your very own wizard to play as.

Here’s all you need to know about the new Harry Potter RPG, from possible names to the latest release date rumours and gameplay news.

What Will The Harry Potter RPG Be Called?
The Harry Potter RPG game is yet to be formally announced, so the only people who really know the name are the people working on it. Well, the developers and BBC journalist Lizo Mzimba, if a tweet is to be believed.

The BBC entertainment correspondent claims that the upcoming open-world Harry Potter game could be called Harry Potter: Magic Awakened, though other titles including Magic Forever are also being considered internally. This could just be hearsay, but considering the prominent position of the journalist, we imagine that his sources are fairly accurate.

On the other hand, none of those names appeared in a June 2020 leak. A Reddit poster claiming to work for Warner Bros.' marketing department said that instead the game won't have Harry Potter in the title at all, and will instead be called Hogwarts: A Dark Legacy. Still, there's nothing to back up this leaker's claim, so take it with a pinch of salt.

When Will The New Harry Potter Game Be Released?
Sadly, we’ve got no release date – or even a window – in sight just yet.

Though the leaked video features pretty polished gameplay mechanics, Eurogamer’s sources claimed that it’s still “at least a year away from launch” - and that was back in 2018.

Word is that Warner Bros. was planning to show the game off during E3 2020 - but with the show cancelled over coronavirus, we're not sure how that will affect the announcement schedule.

A June 2020 report from Bloomberg cites two people working on the game and claims it is on the way "late next year" - meaning late 2021 - which is probably the most accurate prediction we've had yet.

The same report says an announcement is now due some time after the DC FanDome event in August, and claims that author JK Rowling has "very little direct involvement" in the game - a bit of Warner Bros. damage control in the wake of the writer's transphobic views.

What Platforms Will The Harry Potter Game Be On?
Since the game hasn't been announced, we don't know for sure yet.

The Bloomberg report claims the game will launch on the PS5 and Xbox Series X - which makes sense given the timing - but makes no mention of a PC release, or anything for streaming services like Google Stadia.

We also don't know if a less advanced version of the game will launch on the existing PS4 or Xbox One, or even on the Switch.

Watch The Leaked Trailer
The source of much of the news about the upcoming Harry Potter comes from a leaked gameplay trailer posted to Reddit by user VapeThisBro.

The poster claims that he was shown the video as part of a market research session, and while people were initially sceptical about the authenticity of the video, several other sources have come forward and confirmed that the project is real and is in development at the moment.

What Will The Harry Potter RPG Gameplay Be Like?
While we know nothing official about gameplay, the two main leaks each claim various - often conflicting - details about what to expect.

The first leak claims that the game is set some time in the 1800s, while the June 2020 details instead suggest it will take place in the near future, after the events of the books and even after Harry's children attend and graduate from the school.

Both leaks agree that the game is an open-world third-person RPG where you explore Hogwarts and the surrounding grounds, along with sites like Hogsmead or the Ministry of Magic, crafting potions, mastering spells and discovering magical beasts.

Don’t expect it to be as lesson-oriented as previous Harry Potter games, as the game also includes deep combat mechanics - the later leak suggests there will be both duelling and more fluid fights, with various enemies and multiple antagonists including a former Death Eater.

Both of the leaks claim you play as a fifth year student who has only transferred from another wizarding school, and the first leak says that together with Professor Elezar Fig, you’re tasked with tracking and identifying remnants of an ancient power.

The inclusion of a character creator indicates that this will be a unique story in the Harry Potter universe, though we're not quite sure how it works. The early leak says you’ll be able to choose from one of eight classes, while the later one instead emphasises that your choices in the creator affect your Hogwarts House and thus elements of the larger story.

The 2020 leak adds further details: mini-games for both Quidditch and a magical card game; romance options with fellow students; a dynamic rival system; a five-branched skill tree; and even the chance to play as an Auror in missions after your character graduates from the school.

You can watch the leaked trailer at the link above if you haven’t already, and for those that want to know more, take a look at the alleged blurb for the upcoming Harry Potter game:

“Set in the 19th Century (1800's) Wizarding World, this 3rd 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.

Elvis from Outer Space Movie Review

Blue Suede Saucers
"ATTENTION! ELVIS has left the planet! Elvis has left the planet!" Yup. A completely predictable remark you could expect from pretty much anybody after hearing the title of this movie.  Fortunately, the predictability of "Elvis from Outer Space" stops there. Instead, first time writer/directors Marv Silverman and Tracy Wuischpard have crafted a wonderfully original story that pushes aside all caricatures and tropes and replaces them with a fun and clever romp that fully lives up to its kooky title.

Chris Brown/Young Thug - Slime&B Music Album Reviews

Rap’s trickster god and R&B’s least tolerable person collaborate on a mixtape with no discernible upside. 
Of the many strange pop-culture artifacts to emerge from quarantine, a collaboration between Young Thug and Chris Brown probably falls higher on the plausibility index than Beyoncé shouting out OnlyFans or the name X Æ A-12, but their new mixtape, Slime&B, still feels beyond explanation. It’s hard to imagine it existing in a world less dystopian than the one we’re in now. The title implies a meeting of the minds and a marrying of their styles, yet this is a clear mismatch. Brown, while still commercially viable, has been slumping creatively. Thug is at the height of his success and near the peak of his powers. To work with Brown, Thug must sacrifice a ton of what makes him special and engaging. Why go from So Much Fun to so little?
