Can you play Quidditch in Hogwarts Legacy?

There are a few elements from the Harry Potter universe that most people want to see portrayed in a game like Hogwarts Legacy. Of course, we all expect wands, spells, the titular school, and all the magical creatures, but it’s the fictional sport of Quidditch that tops most people’s list of most requested activities. This fantastical sport sees two teams of players mount up on their flying broomsticks above a field in an attempt to knock balls through their opponent’s rings. Of course, there’s also the Golden Snitch that needs to be caught for the game to conclude. This feels like a perfect activity to include in an RPG like Hogwarts Legacy, but can you actually play Quidditch in the game?

As sad as it is to say, you cannot play Quidditch in Hogwarts Legacy. While you do gain access to a flying broom, and can visit the school’s Quidditch field, it can’t be used to play this magical sport. This was confirmed before the game even released, but once it came out, we found out the in-game explanation for why none of the students are mounting up for some matches.

According to the current headmaster of Hogwarts, Phineas Nigellus Black, a student suffered a major injury playing Quidditch in the prior year. Due to the indecent, the staff decided it would be best to cancel the following year’s season and banned all students from participating in games. While this is by no means a satisfying reason why we don’t get to experience Quidditch in the biggest Harry Potter game to date, it is the one we must accept.

We do have a bit of good news though. While you may not be able to play quidditch in Hogwarts Legacy, Portkey Games recently announced an entirely separate multiplayer quidditch game called Harry Potter: Quidditch Champions. We don’t know a lot about the game yet, but hopefully it satisfies your quidditch itch.

There are more secret items and mechanics in Dragon's Dogma 2 than almost any other game. You can accidentally lose an entire town to the Dragonsplague or miss out on the true ending if you're not paying close enough attention. That's not to mention all the secret items and weapons in the world. One incredibly powerful but risky item is known as the Unmaking Arrow. This is the most powerful weapon in the game, but it comes with a very interesting caveat. Plus, there are only two known ways to get them, meaning you need to pick your targets very carefully. If you think you can handle the power of this arrow and the responsibility it brings, here is where you can find it.

What is dragonsplague in Dragon’s Dogma 2 and how is it cured?

Dragon's Dogma 2 likes to keep many of its mechanics and systems a secret until you discover them. You will learn quickly that you can't fast travel around the map freely, but there's one mechanic that is far more detrimental to your game. This is called dragonsplague and it is a disease that can't be cured with a simple tonic. In fact, you may not even realize if you have it in your game because it isn't something that affects your character at all; instead, it affects your Pawns. Failing to recognize you have dragonsplague and deal with it in a timely manner can ruin your entire playthrough if you're not careful. To avoid such a catastrophe, here are all the details about this cruel disease.
What is dragonsplague?

Dragonsplague is a special kind of disease that Pawns can contract seemingly by interacting with either Drakes or Dragons. That part isn't fully clear yet, however, we do know that Pawns with dragonsplague can spread the disease to other Pawns. Since Pawns are able to pass between worlds to join other players, you are never fully safe from being infected if you're playing online. Unlike a real sickness, though, dragonsplague actually transfers between Pawns rather than spreads, meaning it won't fully run rampant through the game.
