Warner Brothers and Avalanche Studios are doing a three-day early access period to the full launch of Hogwarts Legacy. The early access period means players can get into the game early on all platforms. However, the exact time and moment you can get into Hogwarts Legacy will depend on the platform you choose to buy it on. Console players have it better, with pre-downloads and early access time localized and in motion. But that’s not the case for PC players. It turns out that there is no technical pre-download for Hogwarts Legacy on PC, as downloads are available as soon as the early access launch arrives.
When can I download Hogwarts Legacy on PC?
PC players on Steam and Epic Games will have the same early access launch for Hogwarts Legacy. The Digital Deluxe Edition will begin simultaneously for everyone, which is when you can download Hogwarts Legacy on PC. Once the game is downloaded, you can then jump ion and play the game, as long as you have the digital deluxe edition. If you do not own the Delux edition, then the game will go live on February 10, 2023 instead.
As for the exact times you can download Hogwarts Legacy on PC, we have converted the timezones to Gamer Guide’s most common reader timezones, which you can find below:
- PST: 10:00 - Feb 7
- EST: 13:00 - Feb 7
- BRT: 15:00 - Feb 7
- GMT: 18:00 - Feb 7
- CET: 19:00 - Feb 7
- IST: 23:30 - Feb 7
- JST: 03:00 - Feb 8

Once you reach any of the above times, or an equivalent timezone to your region, then you can download Hogwarts Legacy on PC. If you’re a console player, the game goes live at midnight local time, and you can do the old region switching if you’re on Xbox too. PC players take the loss on this one.
