Players who purchase Hogwarts Legacy may be in for a special surprise. The game, which releases next month, is adding a special offer available to some players that will allow them to access the game before its official release. Here's how you can play the game early.
Hogwarts Legacy puts players into the robes of a fifth-year student at Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry, hitting all the classic beats of the novels and films. Players will be able to select which of the four houses they live in (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin), attend classes, and cast spells. Portkey Games released a new trailer celebrating the game's release in February.
How to Play Hogwarts Legacy Early
According to the game's pre-order page, players who preorder the Deluxe or Collectors editions of Hogwarts Legacy will get to play the game a whole 72 hours earlier than everyone else. This offer includes only players on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
While there are probably plenty of players excited about Hogwarts Legacy and want to explore the game early with this special offer, the game is not without its controversies.
As reported by Forbes, there is a hefty amount of debate over the game following Harry Potter author J.K Rowling's history of transphobic comments. According to the game's FAQ, the author is not involved in the creation of the game, but it does take place in the universe she created.
