Hogwarts Legacy reveals Pre-Order exclusives and release date

Hogwarts Legacy has officially confirmed all of the exclusive items that will be available in the Deluxe, Digital Deluxe, and Collector’s Edition pre-order bundles. They have also revealed that pre-orders will become available tomorrow, August 25th, at 8 AM pacific time.

According to the announcement on Twitter, pre-orders for both the Deluxe and Digital Deluxe editions will offer the same content:

Some fans were frustrated that the Deluxe editions don’t include a steelbook case for the full game. Given the prices of any AAA title, let alone anything from the Wizarding World, it’s very disappointing that the Deluxe editions will simply give players some in-game content. The Onyx Hippogriff and Thestral mounts are certainly neat, but the Dark Arts cosmetic set and Battle Arena hardly seem worthwhile.

On the other hand, some fine print in the promo adds that players who purchase the pre-orders will also get early access to the game. Fans will be able to play 72 hours before it actually hits stores on February 7th, 2023. That’s a little unusual for a pre-order bonus, and definitely the best incentive in the bundle.

If you do want a steel case for the game, you will have to invest in the Collector’s Edition. The case features an absolutely gorgeous Hogwarts Crest. Purchasing the Collector’s Edition will also throw in some other cosmetics, such as a Kelpie Robe, Dark Arts Garrison Hat, and the Deluxe Edition content.

Here’s the Twitter promo for the Collector’s Edition:

Naturally, the biggest draw of the Collector’s Edition is the life-size Floating Wand and Book Base replica. However, if you’re already a Harry Potter fan, you’ve probably taken a glance at the official Harry Potter store. There are plenty of wands that are significantly cheaper and feature replicas that beloved characters wielded. The value of the Collector’s Edition could come down to the crafted quality of the wand.
