Looking for an explainer on the Hogwarts Legacy Special Editions? Hogwarts Legacy has recently been delayed to February, but WB Games is now accepting preorders for the game's special editions. From a hovering wand to DLC, here's what's included in all of the Hogwarts Legacy special editions and how much they cost. 

  • One of the most exciting aspects of Hogwarts Legacy is that it takes place way before Harry Potter was even born.

If you have the money, you'll be able to use Accio to pick up some Hogwarts Legacy special editions. Let's start from the cheapest all the way to the most expensive. 

The Deluxe Edition ($69.99 or $79.99/£69.99 or £74.99, depending on the console) will provide 72 hours of early access to the RPG on February 7 alongside the Dark Arts Pack. The Dark Arts Pack comes with a Thestral Mount, a Dark Arts Battle Arena, and Dark Arts Cosmetic Set.

The Digital Deluxe Edition (same price as the Deluxe Edition) comes with all the prior content, in addition to a Dark Arts Garrison Hat. You'll also be able to play it between generations with a cross-gen digital upgrade.

Lastly, the Hogwarts Legacy Collector's Edition ($289.99 or $299.99/£264.99 or £274.99) is probably the coolest special edition we've seen in a while. It comes with all the previous content from the Digital Deluxe Edition as well as a life-size floating wand with a bookcase. You can also store your game inside a steel case and use a Kelpie Robe in-game. The design on the wand looks immaculate as it shows how old it is. Other gaming fans have not been impressed with the idea. The Gamescom trailer for Hogwarts Legacy was reportedly not received well either. 

If you preorder any version of the game, you will gain an Onyx Hippogriff Mount, in addition to the 72 hours of early access we mentioned earlier.
