Harry Potter fans may just have had a mild heart attack! A stunning and visually attractive video game called 'Hogwarts Legacy' has made an appearance at the recent PS5 showcase of games.

To everyone's surprise, this title promises to make the player venture into the fantastic wizarding world of Harry Potter and explore the places that they have read about in the books and watched in the movies.

It's the dream of every Potterhead to get that precious Hogwarts letter and study wizardry in Hogwarts, and it seems like this is about to come true. Unlike other Harry Potter games, this will focus on the player's interactions and make a personalized experience for every player on the PlayStation 5.

It would be a great way to make non-Potterheads fall in love with the series written by JK Rowling, and make more people aware of this great series. The game should release in 2021, and thus, many more details will be on their way, as this PS5 showcase trailer was just the tip of the iceberg.

So, take up your wands fellow wizards, and await a journey into a muggle-less world!
