In just two weeks, Hogwarts Legacy, the highly anticipated Harry Potter video game, will finally be available for purchase worldwide after years of development and several delays.
This game is set to be one of the most important in the industry to date, and Warner Bros. is well aware of its potential success. Reservations for the game have been incredibly high, indicating that it may be one of the best-selling games of the year.
One of the reasons for the excitement surrounding Hogwarts Legacy is the announcement that a well-known creature from the second Harry Potter book will make an appearance in the game as a weapon.
Additionally, players will be able to explore the Hogwarts grounds and beyond, including the Black Lake, which is a well-known location from the series as it was the site of the second task of the Triwizard Tournament.
A recent video shared on social media has also revealed that players will be able to swim in the game, crossing the Black Lake. While it is unclear if diving will be possible, the video does show that players will have the ability to swim and explore the lake.
However, it should be noted that there may be limitations on this feature, and it remains to be seen if marine creatures such as mermaids will be included in the game.
