Early access and pre-orders aren’t new to anyone, especially gamers. Who wouldn’t be excited when you get a first-hand experience with a game you’ve been eyeing for a while? Pretty sure we’re the excited ones! Speaking of these, Hogwarts Legacy offers Early Access and some goodies along with it. If you need a guide or to help decide if you’ll try for Hogwarts Legacy’s Early Access, here are the inclusive freebies, the date of its release, and pre-order too. Shall we head to the wizarding world now?

Early Access for Hogwarts Legacy

The upcoming Harry Potter game from Portkey Games went through a lot of delays and pushback. Hopefully, we can have a finalized and certain date for its release soon. While we hope for that, do you know that you can enjoy Early Access to the game? It’s quite simple, you just have to pre-order the Hogwarts Legacy game edition of your choice, and you can enjoy it ahead of time.

  • The game drops on February 10th, 2023, so you may still purchase the pre-order of the game now. It may be a bit doubtful or tricky to buy it since reviews have yet to come out. Hmm, maybe the bonus inclusions can make you change your mind then?
  • Pre-ordering the game entails you receiving Early Access to the Hogwarts Legacy game and a few more benefits. If you need help in pre-purchasing, know the different editions and their bonuses for each!
  • If you’re excited about the game, then the Early Access date of around 72 hours (3 days) before the official release would be great. If you think you can’t wait to step into the Wizarding World of Hogwarts in the 1800s, well, pre-order it now!

Pre-order benefits

You can simply head over to the official website of Hogwarts Legacy and navigate where you can pre-order. For easier access, you can just go to this link. Now you’re seeing the Standard Edition and the Deluxe Edition.

Standard Edition
  • Of course, the Standard Edition entitles players to pre-order benefits, but fewer than the Deluxe. If you’re interested in the game and not the goodies, then the following in-game freebies are perfect for you. Unfortunately, this edition does not offer 72 hours of Early Access to the game.
    • Onyx Hippogriff Mount
    • Felix Felicis Potion Recipe (PlayStation Pre-Order Exclusive)
    • Haunted Hogsmeade Shop Quest (PlayStation Exclusive Content)
Deluxe Edition
  • If you have a bigger budget for a new game, then you can opt for the Deluxe Edition. There are no physical items but numerous in-game items can be enjoyed by buyers. The following items are as follows:
    •  Thestral Mount
    • Dark Arts Cosmetic Set
    • Dark Arts Battle Arena
    • Onyx Hippogriff Mount
    • Dark Arts Garrison Hat
    • 72 Hours Early Access (for PlayStation 5, Xbox X and S, and PC only)
    • Felix Felicis Potion Recipe (PlayStation Pre-Order Exclusive)
    • Haunted Hogsmeade Shop Quest (PlayStation Exclusive Content)
Collector’s Edition
  • As it’s titled, if you’re a huge fan or a collector fan, this would be the best choice for you. The Collector’s Edition offers physical items that you can play and enjoy. Of course, we can expect it to be quite expensive but, pretty sure it’s worth unboxing and purchasing as it has the following items:

    • Dark Arts Cosmetic Set
    • Thestral Mount
    • Dark Arts Battle Arena
    • Steel Case & Full Game
    • Collector’s Edition Box
    • Floating Want & Book Base
    • Kelpie Robe
    • Dark Arts Garrison Hat
    • 72 Hours Early Access

Now that you have an idea for the inclusive freebies and the Early Access release date, then would you purchase the Hogwarts Legacy game, wizards?
