When does Hogwarts Legacy come out? It depends on your platform
A new adventure set in the past of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Warner Bros. and Avalanche Software’s Hogwarts Legacy, will be released this year on all major gaming platforms, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One. , and Xbox Series X. But unlike many games, where the goal is to release on all platforms simultaneously, Hogwarts Legacy’s launch will be staggered over six months.
The Hogwarts Legacy release date(s) confusion is an early access period associated with the Deluxe version of the game. Yes, you can play Hogwarts Legacy early, if you pay a premium.
Hogwarts Legacy will officially launch on February 10, with the release of the PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Xbox Series X versions of the game. The standard version of the game costs $59.99 on PC, or $69.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X. The Deluxe Edition of Hogwarts Legacy costs $69.99 on PC and $79.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X, and this is the version that offers 72 hours of early access to the game — meaning players can play it early by starting from February 7. (This Deluxe Edition also includes something called the Dark Arts pack, which includes some cosmetics, a mount, and access to the Dark Arts Battle Arena.)
For Potter fans on PS4 and Xbox One, Hogwarts Legacy will be released on those consoles on April 4th. There is no early access period for the PS4 and Xbox One versions.
The Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy will be released on July 25th.
So when does Hogwarts Legacy actually come out?
Here is the simple composition:
February 7 – Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition Early Access (PC, PS5, Xbox Series X) February 10 – Hogwarts Legacy Standard Edition (PC, PS5, Xbox Series X) April 4 – Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition and Standard Edition (PS4, Xbox One ) July 25 — Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition and standard (Switch) What about Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition?
The extravagant, physical Collector’s Edition of Hogwarts Legacy will also be released on February 7, allowing serious Harry Potter fans with deep pockets to play the game early. Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition can (technically) be pre-ordered for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X for $299.99 and PC for $289.99. There are also PS4 and Xbox One versions of the Collector’s Edition for $289.99, but like the other versions of the previous-gen console, they won’t arrive until April. (Warner Bros. is not selling a collector’s edition for the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy.)
But that’s kind of a moot point – the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition seems to have sold out at the retailers that carry it (Amazon and GameStop) anyway.
