Hogwarts Legacy Video Teases The Games Spellbinding Puzzles

A recent gameplay video posted on the Hogwarts Legacy social media pages gives us a hint at the game’s spellbinding puzzles.

The short gameplay clip in question shows the main protagonist collecting a scroll found on the grounds of Hogwarts. The scroll appears to “uncover ancient and challenging puzzles.”

The clip then shows a mirror that opens up a secret passage in what looks like the Grand Staircase area. Despite only being 13 seconds, this brief clip gives us a glimpse at some of the secrets that we’ll be able to discover at the legendary School of Witchcraft.
