Harry Potter Hogwarts Legacy: How has the game changed from 2020 to the State of Play of 2022?

Filtered in 2018, Harry Potter's role play: Hogwarts Legacy has probably been in development for five or six years. Therefore, it is logical that the game has evolved over time, especially when we know that avalanche and Warner Bros Games have surrounded by studios as a digital sumo to help them. During a PlayStation conference at the end of 2020, this long-awaited title from the Harry Potter universe finally appeared officially and millions of fans were in love. With this first teaser we could see that the game was not at its full potential, but the announcement of its postponement to 2022 would have helped him a lot.

From 2020 to 2022: How has Hogwarts Legacy evolved?

Without any news for two years, Hogwarts Legacy finally left its silence in March 2022. Sony then announced an estate of 20 minutes completely dedicated to the game that was scheduled for the end of the year on all platforms. Clearly the expectation was worth it since the graphic transformation is simply sensational. Next, we will see some comparisons between the version of 2020 (left) and the version of 2022 (right). Of course, such brightness may seem logical, a year and a half later, but most fanatics did not expect so beautiful graphics.

The main changes to be noticed are at the level of lights and shadows in the Hogwarts environments. They have been added More details (especially in clothing) and the faces of the characters are much more realistic.

What happens with the FPS and system requirements?

With such graphics, you wonder if this ambitious title will work correctly on most machines or if it will be absolutely necessary to buy a new generation console or a high-end computer. If the title is well optimized, this should not be a big problem, but the stability of frames could be affected. In the recent progress of the game, sometimes we see some FPS falls, but this can be due to coding of the video and the desire of the developers to show beautiful landscapes instead of prioritizing the FPS.

In summary, in addition to Nintendo Switch and PC with ancient graphic cards, Hogwarts Legacy should work without problems on most platforms. We will have to wait until the end of the year to learn more about the minimum and recommended configurations.

The two most striking comparisons are probably the next two with the entrance of the much more detailed Hogsmeade people (signboard, cobblestones) and the Gryffindor common room.

Thanks to the trailer of the game, we realize that the animations have also improved enough (combat, magical creatures or even dialogues between the characters). So, do you think Hogwarts Legacy looks like a great generation game?
