Set to release in 2021 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One consoles, and PC, this game will allow players to become the witch or wizard they’ve always dreamed of being. Their abilities will grow as they master spells, hone their combat skills, and choose companions to help them face off against deadly enemies. Players will also encounter missions and situations that pose difficult choices and determine their morality and what they stand for.
