With the release of Hogwarts Legacy only a few more months away, fans are eager to learn how the house sorting process will unfold.

Hogwarts Legacy is an immersive, open-world, action RPG set in the 1800s wizarding world of JK Rowling's best selling Harry Potter book series. Published by Warner Brothers Interactive, the game functions as a sort of prequel to the events of Rowling's books. Although the events of the game do not derive from her writings, they are "firmly rooted in her magical universe."

How to Choose Your Hogwarts Legacy House Already

House selection at Hogwarts is an important decision. For fans of the upcoming game it need not be as stressful as Harry Potter's ordeal with the sorting hat.

To begin the house sorting process, hopeful wizards must visit the Wizarding World website. The sorting hat will then conduct an extensive personality questionnaire before reaching a decision on which house to place the player in. As part of a similar process, wizards and witches will also be selected by their wands.

All the data from the quizzes will be integrated into the Hogwarts Legacy game when it releases by linking through a player's Warner Brother's account. Fans fearful of getting drafted where they may not fit in should know that just as in the book series, the sorting hat takes player choice into account. Or as a workaround, there is no rule prohibiting the creation of multiple accounts to take the quizzes.

Hogwarts Legacy will launch on Feb. 10, 2023 for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. The Nintendo Switch launch date is yet to be announced at the time of this article.
