The soundtrack for Hogwarts Legacy has been officially announced. For gamers to truly become immersed in the experience, the atmosphere and setting must be perfect. Therefore, choosing music to make the perfect environment for Hogwarts Legacy is of utmost importance. The pieces must help players feel like they are a genuine part of the magical world.
In Hogwarts Legacy, players will take on the role of a student who is believed to carry some ancient secret that could disrupt the wizarding world. As time went by, more details were revealed, with some of them slipping through unnoticed. As the game is set for release on PC and next-gen platforms in February, fans have already started to think about certain parts of the title–like the two soundtracks.
On February 10, Chandler Wood, Avalanche Software’s community manager, revealed that two Hogwarts Legacy soundtracks are being released. Previously, the creation of the music for Hogwarts Legacy was showcased, so fans are aware of what to expect. No additional information was provided, but Wood commented on the coming soundtracks.
As Hogwarts Legacy is already predicted to be a success, avid players will want to immerse themselves in the wizarding experience by listening to the game’s music even outside of the game. This means that having the soundtracks available by the release date of the game will be a great way for fans to enjoy the music of the Hogwarts game world.
Avalanche Software, Warner Bros., and Portkey Games have put a lot of effort into making sure Hogwarts Legacy lives up to the Harry Potter brand. The prior games in the series had a lukewarm reception, but they stayed true to the source material. This new installment is likely to be the biggest yet, as it is expected to bring a combination of nostalgia and novelty. The creators have taken elements from the existing Harry Potter mythology and put them into the game, such as music, characters, and locations.
Hogwarts Legacy will be available to play on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on February 10. For those who only have PS4 or Xbox One, they will be able to play it on April 4, while the Switch version will be available on July 25.
