After being shrouded in mystery for so long, the concrete details about Hogwarts Legacy finally started to surface. First we have long gameplay presentation back in March, and earlier this week we got a new trailer focused on the Dark Arts.
An open world RPG set in the world of Harry Potter will be released on February 10, 2023 and will launch on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, Xbox one and PCs. A Nintendo Switch version also coming at a later date that has not been determined. Now that the long-awaited game has a definite release date, Hogwarts Legacy pre-order details have also been conjured up.
The game will launch in several physical editions including the majestic Deluxe and Collector’s Edition. Those who prefer to buy their games digitally will also have a choice between the two editions. Starting at 11:00 a.m. ET on Thursday, August 25, the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition and Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition are now available for pre-order. All the purchase links you need are below, so grab your broom and get your pre-order now.
What’s in the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition?
It Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition (opens in a new tab) will be released across platforms and cost $80/£75 for PS5 and Xbox Series X, $70/£75 for PS4 and Xbox One, and $70/£60 for PC and Nintendo Switch.
This premium version of Hogwarts Legacy includes 72 hours early access to the game, allowing you to start playing on February 7, 2023. In addition, you also get various in-game goodies such as the Black Art Pack. This DLC pack offers an exclusive Dark Arts cosmetic set, a flying Thestral stand, and access to the Dark Arts Battle Arena where you can test your mastery of the evil side of magic against waves of challenging enemies.
There will also be a Hogwarts Legacy Digital Deluxe Edition for $80/£75 across platforms. It includes all of the same extras as its physical counterpart, in addition to the Dark Arts Garrison Hat and cross-gen digital upgrades on PlayStation and Xbox. If you’re planning on planning Hogwarts Legacy across console generations, this is the version for you because, as previously stated, standard edition doesn’t come with free upgrade.
What’s in the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition?
The Wannabe wizards might want to splurge on the pricey Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition. The ultra-premium version of the game will cost $289/£269 for PC and PS4/Xbox One, and a tantalizing $300/£279 for PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The Collector’s Edition includes all of the Deluxe Edition content mentioned above, as well as a physical-sized floating wand with a book base that would look pretty epic on display. It will also include a collectible steel bookcase, and an in-game Kelpie Robe to equip your character. We expect this edition to be available in relatively small quantities, so you should pre-order it as soon as it launches tomorrow.
