Hogwarts Legacy: What’s in the North Tower?


Hogwarts Legacy recently showed off a short clip of the campus’ North Tower, and it connects closely to some important franchise lore.

Hogwarts Legacy is in an odd place right now. It is the last major title currently announced for the fall/holiday season, but it does not yet have a release date. Following Ubisoft’s recent delay of Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, the other previously undated and major holiday game, fans may be wondering if Warner Bros is planning to delay Hogwarts Legacy in a similar manner.

Yet, unlike Avatar, plenty of information has been shown and even more has leaked online. WB social media is also constantly posting little bits of information on Hogwarts Legacy, leaving fans with more teases than anything else. For example, many fans are excited to see and eventually explore the school grounds of Hogwarts, and WB recently showed off the North Tower. The little clip sticks closely to established lore about the school’s North Tower.

Hogwarts Legacy: North Tower, Divination, Centaurs, Oh My!

Hogwarts Legacy’s North Tower is known as the Divination tower. The clip shows off some of it, a centaur statue, a depiction of the forest, and more. These are all encouraging elements for the upcoming game. It’s here where players will likely attend Divination classes at Hogwarts, and Divination magic is used to look into the past, present, and future. It’s also the practice of prophecy, and this could be a major facet of the Hogwarts Legacy protagonist.

As fans know, they are somehow connected to an ancient magic—a key part of the plot, alongside a Goblin rebellion. Because of this emphasis on ancient magic and possible “future” events, it would make sense if divination was an important practice to the main character. Furthermore, it’s a good way to introduce more centaurs into the Harry Potter franchise.

In the Harry Potter franchise, centaurs are closely connected to the practice of divination and are capable of performing it in ways better than humans. At least as part of this plot, it stands to reason that centaurs could play a huge role, and all of this is out of a short and simple clip.

Hopefully, more on Hogwarts Legacy comes out soon rather than later. Even if it is unfortunately delayed, this sort of information is always best communicated early. Either way, with Hogwarts Legacy’s holiday 2022 release window, something has to be revealed sooner or later.

Hogwarts Legacy releases in Holiday 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
