On this page you’ll find information on what’s included in the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition and whether we think it’s worth it! We’ve included the price of the standard edition to help you decide if you want to upgrade.
How Much is Hogwarts Legacy?
The standard copy of Hogwarts Legacy is $59.99 for PC, Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The standard edition on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series is a bit more expensive and will set you back $69.99.
The Deluxe Edition on PC, Switch, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will cost $69.99, whilst next-gen console players should expect to spend $79.99.
Then, for those die-hard Harry Potter fans, there’s the Collector’s Edition for $299.99. It includes the Deluxe Edition of the game, a steel case for the game and a large wizard’s tome with an electromagnetic floating wand.
What is Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition?
So what exactly do you get for the extra $10? Well, one of the most appealing aspect of the deluxe edition is the 72 hour early access, which will bump up the release date from 10th of February to the 7th of February. That being said last-gen console players will not be able to play the game until April 4th, 2023 and Switch players won’t be able to get their hands on the game until July 25th. The early access period is only available to players on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series.
Although Switch and last-gen players won’t get the early access, all players who purchase the Deluxe Edition will get the Dark Arts Pack, which includes the following:
- Thestral Mount
- Dark Arts Battle Arena
- Dark Arts Cosmetic Set
- Dark Arts Garrison Hat
As we can see most of what you get in the deluxe edition is cosmetic, which seems pretty standard for a deluxe edition. At this stage, it’s unclear if different mounts will have different stamina, speed, controllability etc, but getting an exclusive mount from the Deluxe Edition sounds pretty cool!
As an extra incentive for players who preorder the Standard or Deluxe edition, you’ll get the Onyx Hippogriff Mount as well. And PlayStation players will be pleased to hear that they’ll also get another pre-order exclusive: Felix Felicis Potion Recipe.
Is Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition Worth it?
So the big question: is it worth it? Obviously that’s a pretty personal question and every player will need to weigh up the pros. For an extra $10, the 72 hour early access is a pretty big incentive for those who are super excited for the game. Plus, the cosmetics and extra mount seem like a decent bonus too. For last-gen and Switch players, the deluxe edition doesn’t offer the early access so in that sense, it might not feel like that good of a deal.
