Update: Hogwarts Legacy has received a provisional PEGI 16 age rating. Here's how it's defined on the Pan-European Game Information website:
"This rating is applied once the depiction of violence (or sexual activity) reaches a stage that looks the same as would be expected in real life. The use of bad language in games with a PEGI 16 rating can be more extreme, while games of chance, and the use of tobacco, alcohol or illegal drugs can also be present."
Original: Publisher Warner Bros. has officially unveiled Hogwarts Legacy as its long-rumored Harry Potter RPG during yesterday's PS5 showcase event.
Developed by Avalanche Software – not to be confused with Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios –, Hogwarts legacy is an open-world RPG set in the late 1800s, well before the events of the Harry Potter movies.
