Hogwarts Legacy VR is coming, now with new gameplay footage
It looks like Hogwarts Legacy VR is about to become a reality thanks to a transformative mod for Unreal Engine that will bring virtual reality support to the Harry Potter RPG game. As the Hogwarts Legacy release date approaches and you want to explore the school of witchcraft and wizardry in more detail than ever before, new gameplay footage shows Hogwarts Legacy VR in action. Oh, and it should work for Epic’s Shooter Fortnite too.
Developed by Praydog, the VR modder who previously added virtual reality support to Resident Evil 2, the aptly named UE VR Injector mod will bring virtual reality support to Unreal Engine games – including Hogwarts heritage If you want to feel like you’re actually on the Hogwarts Legacy map, or cast all of those Hogwarts Legacy spells in person, that may soon be a reality.
With early access to Hogwarts Legacy, dedicated VR channel Flat2VR has already tested Praydogs Mod in Harry Potter game. At the moment there is no support for motion controls, which means that the mod is practically visual only – you can turn your head and look around Hogwarts, but you still have to use a regular controller.
Also, there is no set release date for the UE VR Injector yet, so we may have to wait. Keep an eye on Praydog’s Patreon for more updates. Nonetheless, alongside Hogwarts Legacy, you can check out Fortnite VR for further proof of the concept.
Alternatively, you can meet all of the Hogwarts Legacy characters that you will encounter. You may also want to read the Hogwarts Legacy Challenges so you know what to expect in your fifth year. We can also help you brew some helpful Hogwarts Legacy potions, or help you find all the Hogwarts Legacy Eyeball Crates to keep the Galleons from rolling.
Harry Potter series creator JK Rowling has made a number of transphobic comments on social media in recent years. Warner Bros. is licensed to develop games based on Harry Potter. Although the details of this deal are not publicly known, and WB Games says that “JK Rowling is not directly involved in the development of the game,” it’s likely that as the creator and owner of Harry Potter’s intellectual property, she will earn royalties from its sales.
