Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer Avalanche revealed on Wednesday Hogwarts Legacy, a role-playing game set in the magical Wizarding World of Harry Potter in the 1800s.

Players of the immersive, open-world game will control a student witch or wizard and take on missions that test their character, combat skills and abilities.

"Hogwarts Legacy gives players control over their own experience with RPG gameplay unlike anything else in the Wizarding World, which will continue to build fan appeal in the Portkey Games label," said David Haddad, president of Warner Bros. Games. "Avalanche has brought to life this rich and deep world, full of action-packed magic, as well as a detailed, mysterious story to engage fans and gamers alike."

Hogwarts Legacy releases in 2021 on next-gen consoles PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, S, as well as Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
