Officially the best gamescom trailer comes as no surprise

gamescom presented an award for the title “best trailer”. The winner is no surprise.

Which game won the title? The Harry Potter role-playing game Hogwarts Legacy won the title for best trailer. Developed by Avalanche, the title will be released on February 10, 2023 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Windows.

In the role-playing game, however, you do not embody any of the characters known from the books or films, but send your own character to magic school.

What does the trailer show? The Hogwarts Legacy ONL trailer gives you a glimpse of the forbidden curses and focuses on an RPG companion quest where you meet Sebastian Sallow.

Furthermore, the scenes shown indicate that you have to decide within the quest whether you want to engage in the dark arts or reject them.

Action RPG with a huge franchise behind it

Why isn’t the award a surprise? Harry Potter is one of the biggest and most popular franchises in the world. Both the books and the films have many fans.

Accordingly, Hogwarts Legacy also has a certain amount of attention and was a big topic for many Twitter users who were waiting for news about the action RPG even before the start of gamescom. This is also shown by the raw numbers on YouTube:

The three channels mentioned achieved 1,332,000 views with the gamescom Opening Night Live Hogwarts Legacy trailer.

But the reactions on site were also clear when the trailer was presented, as MeinMMO editor-in-chief Leya Jankowski reported to us. The title earned a lot of applause and the mood was already very good when the title was mentioned.

Two other trailers would have deserved the title as well

Which trailers were the biggest competition for the title? Two trailers in particular stood out at gamescom 2022, which would also have been strong contenders for the title “best trailer” and were able to convince both with the number of views on YouTube and with the pure staging:

1. Lords of the Fallen Announcement Trailer

  • 1,914,000 views via YouTube
  • strong staging with beautiful graphics
  • Trailer convinces with a mix of dark fantasy and classic rock (Danzig – Mother)

2. Dune: Awakening – Announcement Trailer

If we only look at the pure number of views, Hogwarts Legacy would only be in third place among the trailers we mentioned. Nor would it have been a surprise if either of the other two titles had won.

Do you think Hogwarts Legacy deserves the title of “best trailer” or did you have another game ahead? Have Dune: Awakening or Lord of the Fallen been deprived of the title? Write it to us here on MeinMMO in the comments!

For MeinMMO editor Schuhmann there is a big winner at gamescom 2022 and a game that is as good as dead.

I say: gamescom 2022 already has a big winner – and one game is as good as dead
