Instead of playing as The Boy Who Lived, players will instead take the role of a customizable protagonist who is starting their fifth year at Hogwarts. Based on the early plot synopsis, the main character is not only able to control a forgotten type of magic but also “holds the key to an ancient secret that threatens to tear the wizarding world apart.”


Although the game’s FAQ page has already confirmed that it will not have a morality system in place, the actions of the protagonist throughout the main story will ultimately determine what kind of witch or wizard they become.

With this in mind, the type of wizard you turn out to be will most likely be tied directly to your interactions with the inhabitants of the wizarding world and the spells you decide to cast within it.

The Hogwarts Legacy gameplay showcase has already revealed that you can cast Unforgivable Curses, such as Avada Kedavra. Since these enchantments are often frowned upon in the wizarding world, using them may negatively influence your character.
