However, players who purchase the Deluxe Edition of the game will receive 72 hours early access, enabling them to start playing on February 7.
Developed by Avalanche Software (Disney Infinity), Hogwarts Legacy is an open-world action RPG that takes players to new and familiar locations “as they live the unwritten and embark on a dangerous journey to uncover a hidden truth of the wizarding world”.
Set in the 1800s, players step into the shoes of a fifth-year student at Hogwarts who has a rare ability to tap into ancient magic.
Sebastian Croft (Love, Death & Robots, Heartstopper) and Amelia Gething (The Amelia Gething Complex, Emily) play the two voice options for the game’s playable avatar, which can be customised to create a wizard or a witch.
Simon Pegg also stars in the game as Hogwarts’ detested Slytherin headmaster Phineas Nigellus Black.
Warner recently confirmed details of Hogwarts Legacy’s PS5 and Xbox Series X/S graphics modes, as well as the PC specs for the game, which will require powerful hardware in order to run at its full potential and at least 85GB of storage.
