The Hogwarts Legacy HUD was noticed in early trailers for the Harry Potter RPG recreation, and for a lot of followers its design left lots to be desired. With feedback suggesting that it was a easy placeholder, a brand new teaser trailer could indicate that the HUD we’ve seen is the one we’ll be getting.
Followers have deduced this from the ominous trailer for the Imperio spell, one of many wizarding world’s three unforgivable curses. The icon for the power includes a white male facet profile on a black diamond background, inside which is a puppeteer’s hand controlling the goal’s ideas.
It’s the diamond form of the icon that has caught consideration, although, because it completely slots into an earlier model of the HUD that gamers present in one of many recreation’s trailers.
For the time being, the power HUD appears to be a big diamond form made up of 4 smaller diamonds, every of which signify a unique spell. As one fan famous on the sport’s reddit, the Imperio icon suits into the present iteration of the HUD, doubtlessly scuppering preliminary ideas that the trailer’s model could also be a placeholder.
“I could also be greedy at straws right here however primarily based on how the icon for Imperio was offered within the current Twitter put up, might this probably imply the HUD has stayed the identical because it was found?” they ask. “Both manner, I really like the icon for Imperio, it appears very clear. I wouldn’t thoughts the HUD being the identical, however from the few frames we noticed, it appeared very ‘testy’ and gimmicky.”
One budding wizard writes “primarily based on this, (and nothing is definite) I’d recommend a minimum of the essential fashion is staying. They might replace a few of the icons however I believe we see the fashion fairly clearly.”
“That’s a extremely good catch!” feedback one other fan. “Though, until some s**t occurs behind the scenes, it solely is sensible that the tough thought for the HUD would keep the identical after a few months.” A last response notes “hopefully they enhance it for the ultimate model of the sport.”
Whereas some aren’t a fan of the present spellcasting diamond, I personally fairly prefer it. All the pieces is legible, appears like it may be simply keybound, and a few of the icons look completely superior – Imperio included. Don’t try to lock me up in Azkaban, it simply appears cool okay?
We’ll solely know whether or not or not that is the finalised HUD after we attain the extremely anticipated Hogwarts Legacy launch date. Whereas we watch for that thrilling day, now we have the reply to the age outdated query is Harry Potter in Hogwarts Legacy – no spoilers right here, don’t fear.
