Hogwarts Legacy, the video game prequel spin-off to Harry Potter, is getting its own dedicated PlayStation State of Play broadcast on Friday, 18 March. The showcase will last for around 20 minutes, and will include new gameplay footage alongside development insights from the team at Avalanche Software.

Given the length of the presentation, and the fact that publisher Warner Bros. recently confirmed the game is still set for a 2022 launch, it’s likely we’ll also get a firm release date at the conclusion of the show.

In the official PlayStation blog, the team confirmed over 14 minutes of PS5 gameplay footage will be shown off, giving fans a better glimpse at how the game actually plays.
