  • Developer Portkey Games used clever coding to create magical experiences, like hidden Polyjuice Potions and a mini Quidditch game.

    , as it’s a small appreciation gesture.



Despite the game’s release over a year ago, the Hogwarts Legacy community is still unearthing all kinds of secrets in the town of Hogsmeade. When they’re busy learning spells and brewing potions in the myriad classes available, students who attend the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry can venture into one of the nearby hamlets to spend some of their hard-earned money on new items or simply poke about the town to see what can be found. As it turns out, magic is hidden everywhere if you know where to look.

Posted to Reddit by khaosbrown, the player showed off their discovery concerning the interior of Bingle & Blatch, one of the stores that can be visited in Hogsmeade, which changes dramatically based on whichever door is used to enter the building.

Going through the front entrance reveals a tasteful tailor, the right door opens up into a cozy bookshop, and heading through the left leads into a musty cauldron shop. While this feature has likely been in the game since its launch, fellow players expressed surprise at the discovery, remarking that they’ve never noticed the different rooms.

The discovery of Bingle & Blatch’s shifting interior is just one example of developer Portkey Games using clever coding to create an experience that feels magical for the community. While many of the other Easter eggs in the game aren’t as surprising, they go a long way to making Hogwarts Legacy feel like an authentic recreation of The Wizarding World. Examples like the secretly brewing Polyjuice Potion and the miniature game of Quidditch on display in Madam Kogawa’s office have left enthusiasts excited to continually explore the school and share discoveries.

Hogwarts Legacy is just over a year old and at the time of writing, Portkey Games has remained rather silent on what the player base can expect in terms of additional content. While fans have called for an expansion or some kind of story DLC, the studio has confirmed that it’s working on a “summer update” that will bring some new features to the game but despite the excitement this caused, it may be best to taper expectations. Portkey Games has stated that the upcoming patch will serve as “a small way of us showing appreciation” to its players, so those expecting mounds of new content may be disappointed.
