Leaked footage shows upcoming open-world RPG game set in the Harry Potter universe

HP Leak.jpg

Earlier today, a new YouTube video was making some buzz as it showed footage of an unannounced Harry Potter game. While it has since been taken down from YouTube, you can still watch it via this mirror. The video appears to be pretty polished, showing off some of the game's features and could possibly have been prepared as an announcement trailer.

The leak came from Reddit user VapeThisBro who managed to capture the trailer while he took part in a focus group and further provided the following information regarding the game:

Fuck yes i would love this !!! But seeing it is WB it will probably littered with tons of micro transactions like hogwards mystery. So as much as i would love this, i'm pretty sure it will be a micro transaction mess

Holy shit... That looks amazing. Let's just hope it isn't going to be like the huge cock up Hogwarts Mystery was. From what I saw, that game was terrible.

Thank you based God, YES. This is what I've wanted since I was a little kid.

I really can't express how happy I am if this turns out to be true.

OK, I'm interested. But will it be on switch? And likely this is a prequel to fantastic beasts since we are dealing with Wild west era witches and wizards.

could be good or not, depends on the actual fighting mechanics and if there are some interesting collectibles/side quests.

WANT. NOW!

TL;DR: This could be the game I've been waiting to play since 2002. Or, on the other hand, could be a lootbox-infested microtransaction hellhole, and with Warner Bros' recent treatment of Lord of the Rings with Shadow of War, my feelings are between insane hype and anxious trepidation.

It looks cool, but it looks way beyond finished.
Also, it's taken off-screen, can I add that to the list of all the 238532978534252438597329678 leaks where an image was taken off-screen?

I want three things from this game
  • Fun gameplay
  • To not be written like a bad fan fiction (I'm looking at you, Voldemort: Origins of the Heir)
  • No “modern bullshittery” (microtransactions, loot boxes, cut content sold as DLC, etc.)
If this game can accomplish all of these, I'll love it. I really like the Harry Potter universe (it's probably the most realistic and believable magic universe ever) and I despise how it's been treated as of late.

I always wondered to myself "why don' they do this". Well, now they are finally doing it apparently. With proper direction and a reduced amount of greed, this could really work.

    And I'm still on Batman: Arkham City. Such a good game. Mr Freeze's boss fight is hard and extensive, we're currently at a point where whoever gets the next strike wins. If I miss I'll lose another 30 mins at least.

    Does anyone happen to know if the gecko code handler will always be in the same location? It would be useful if you could call into it's own subroutines in ASM codes.
    Gift
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    Are there any codes that modify the handler to do fun extras like there are for DS codes?
    Gift
  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    I don't see why you would need that, Gecko just allows you to do ASM directly instead of needing to make codes to add new code types.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    There is nothing stopping you from doing that though.

  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    I was thinking more if there were (some of the DS stuff allowing I think it was different boolean masks than stock) then it would confirm that.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    Some of the later DS stuff was pretty impressive. I do want to figure out how some of the lower level stuff worked one of these days.
