Sept. 1 marks the beginning of Back to Hogwarts, the much-loved annual tradition for Wizarding World fans around the globe celebrating the day Hogwarts students catch the Hogwarts Express and return to school for the new term. During today’s Back to Hogwarts celebrations, fans could tune in to watch Back To Hogwarts 2022 – A Look Ahead a special presentation crammed full of news and updates, highlighting some of the exciting things the Wizarding World has in store. An unexpected Hogwarts Legacy easter egg was unveiled in a side quest to castle ruins, the same ruins seen in the Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure ride at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter inside Universal Orlando Resort’s Islands of Adventure. It is just one of the many references hidden in Hogwarts Legacy for eagled-eyed fans to discover.
Additionally, there was a look at the entrances and interiors of the house common rooms at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Starting with Slytherin’s entrance hidden behind a slithering arch of a stone serpent, through the lavish Gryffindor common room set in one of the tallest towers, and the warm, brightly lit Ravenclaw lounge, to the not often seen Hufflepuff common room bathed in natural sunlight through a skylight, players will have plenty to explore in the game.
