    I want to say I'm cautiously optimistic, but the tent in my trousers would say otherwise.

    My computer's slowly been falling behind as things progress and games become more complex.

    I would update the hell out of it just so I could play this at maximum.

    God, it almost looks like skyrim-style open world with Harry Potter. I'm all in.

    If this is really Rocksteady, I have every expectation the titles will go as follows:
    Hogwarts School(of Witchcraft and Wizardry)
    Hogwarts City(includes Hogsmeade)
    Hogwarts Origins(explains what led to the first game, doesn't go back to the founders, why would you think that)
    Hogwarts Student(even more maps, probably Forbidden Forest)

    Buy the season pass for robes from all four houses.

    Hmm

    If true...I sincerely hope they don’t segregate it too much from muggle world.

    I’d love to experience the Napoleonic wars from the perspective of a wizard

    Maybe not the first game but perhaps the second or third game?

    Either way...I’m psyched

    You know they're going too. That's a bit of a reach to say that they should take a game about wizards and make sure the mundane world is included when their focus is going to be largely on the magical aspects. Based on the shit Taure linked, there might be some overlap with more muggle areas, but in general, I fully expect it to be HP!Skyrim.

    I really fucking want this. Open world, magic at your finger tips, a revolving spell cache that you can use regardless of situation. Balance to skills, leveling of skills outside of specific "character perks."

    Specialization in certain builds would be awesome as fuck.

    But like one of the people above said, if its the same people that did Arkham, I hope they've left that business model behind. But hopefully modders can help it.

    WB blocked the YT video. This pretty much confirms it's a real game.

    Cautiously optimistic. But, I hate when games needs a gimmick.

    Why is any of this necessary? Ok, I get not wanting to play the game as an 11 year old, but I feel like there's better ways around it. But the whole latent gift thing? I'm sure the gameplay will be fun, and I know I shouldn't judge anything based on leaks or rumors, but you don't need game gimmicks like this to make a character special. He does magic. He's going to Hogwarts. That's special enough. A character should be made special through their accomplishments, not because of arbitrary magical gifts that no one else has. I miss the days where you were just a random farmer who had to pick up a sword and fight because there was no other option and goes on to slay demons and dragons, not because he unknowingly is a nephelim or has the soul of a dragon or whatever.

    Other HP games are thought to be on the way too? I refuse to believe in anything more until it's confirmed.

    It seems like FB has given the franchise a shot, and people are more willing to explore more exotic concepts within a given world, where characters are different but we all know the rules.
    Seems almost like writing fanfic :thinking:

    Lot of claims are saying that it's based in the 19th century which is pretty interesting. Also a lot of sources denying Rocksteady because while they're working on a AAA mystery project, Avalanche were runoured to be working on a HP game before the leak.

    Looks like it could be fun, but I'm expecting something shitty will accompany it like garbage DLC and lootboxes or something.

    It looks all right, but... the combat system looks questionable. Combat has always been the weakest part of HP games (aside from that handheld turn based one). Like, it looks interesting, and definitely ten times better than the Deathly Hallows games, but I still can't get hyped until I see some real combat footage.

    This looks awesome, I've gotta admit, but I'm not going to be happy with a HP game until it's in full immersion VR with a wand I can hold and swing around to cast spells with.

    You know.. four years ago that'd be weird. Now? I could easily see that being made. The future is neat.

    How would people feel about a completely optional feature that let's you use a mic to say incantations? So that you don't need to switch out your quick selection spells? I only know of one game (P.T.) letting you use the mic in-game, and it wasn't the best, so I'm not sure if it would even work well.
