Same. Really liked what I saw. It has some jank and stiff animations, like the shop vendors being very stiff and feeling very soulless, however, the game is going to come out at the end of the year and there's plenty of time for them to polish that stuff.

It's basically AAA budget open-world Harry Potter's universe game. Which at least the AAA budget should have been done for the franchise a long time ago. Though some of the PS2 Harry Potter games were fun, even though they were low budget license games.

I'm saying this as someone who never read and don't really have any interest in the Harry Potter books, only having watched the movies and am not a Harry Potter fan. It's just one of those franchises that for how big it is - specially before the author opened her mouth to say shit, when it was even bigger - it never got the AAA budget treatment.

So I hope it does well both critically and commercially. Hopefully, it inspires more companies to actually invest AAA budget and properly do licensed franchise games. Both Batman and Spider-Man have proven that when they are done with respect and passion, the result is always great. Cheap cash grabs can go to hell though.

It looks good. But i'm not that much in the Harry Potter universe.
Is it just me or do you see a lot of microtransaction possibilities?

The developers said that Hogwarts Legacy won't have any microtransactions or online features like co-op. You can read the very excellent FAQ in the official site - wish more developers did this, I feel it covers almost all of the questions people might have:

"Q: Are there in-game purchases or micro-transactions in Hogwarts Legacy?
A: Hogwarts Legacy does not have in-game purchases or micro-transactions."

"Q: Does Hogwarts Legacy have online or co-op gameplay?
A: Hogwarts Legacy is a single player experience and does not have online or co-op gameplay. "

The game's community manager also stated the same on Twitter:

"We've seen this question coming up and want to set the record straight.

There are no microtransactions in Hogwarts Legacy."

PS. Forgot to mention that the FAQ is available in multiple languages, in case anyone wants to share it with their non-English speaking family and friends. Specially children who like Harry Potter, but aren't fluent in English. I could be wrong, but I would bet Hogwarts Legacy will be available in multiple languages since usually Warner Bros. games do that.
