Are you wondering if you could actually see the Giant Squid in Hogwarts Legacy?
Well, this article will tell you whether or not you can see the Giant Squid and how.
Hogwarts Legacy: How to See the Giant Squid
Hogwarts Legacy is a massive open-world game where you live as a witch or a wizard in the magical world created by J.K. Rowling. It is so far the best Harry Potter game we have ever got, even though the story is nowhere related to any of the Potter books.
The game features Hogwarts like never before. The detailed graphics makes it even more soothing to look at. The world is huge and exploration is key.
You are not only bound to the school premises but you could also explore places all around the castle including several wizard villages like Hogsmeade, the Forbidden Forest, and the Great Lake.
Speaking of the Great Lake, we all know how mysterious it is. It is also called the Black Lake and is home to a lot of magical beasts.
What is the Giant Squid in Hogwarts Legacy?
The Giant Squid is a mythical best known to live in the Great Lake. The magical beast is said to be either red or purple in color. The squid is mentioned several times in the Harry Potter books but you won’t find anyone speaking of it in the movies.
Although being a giant the Squid is said to be Friendly and does not harm any students. Harry once threw a toast in the Lake the squid ate that. Not only that, Fred and George Weasley have also played with the squid. So we know that it is not dangerous.
Do we see the Giant Squid in Hogwarts Legacy?
Well, yes, you can see a glimpse of the Giant Squid in Hogwarts Legacy. The art cover of the game showed a tentacle of the squid sticking out of the water. That was one of the earliest confirmations of the Giant Squid in the game.
Later on, during the early access gameplay some users posted about a secret room near the Great Lake that had the squid painted on the wall.
Lastly, after the official release of the game, it is said that you could actually see the squid. But for it to happen you would have to get sorted to Slytherin. Yes, that is sad news for other houses but if you remember the Slytherin common room actually looks onto the Black Lake.
You would find three of these giant windows that look onto the lake. You might be able to see fishes swimming around.
However, to see the Giant Squid you need to go ahead and attack one of the three windows. Keep using your basic wand attack on any of the windows. If you are lucky enough, the Giant Squid might just come by to say hello.
Although you will only be able to see a part of its giant tentacle, I guess that is thrilling enough to make you want to meet the friendly giant in the future.
However, there are rumors that you could actually see almost half of the squid’s body as it comes out of the water when you go near the Great Lake. But there is no information on how you could trigger the beast to show himself.
