Although a prequel set long before the Harry Potter storyline, there are some Wizarding World locations in the Hogwarts Legacy prequel game that have been around for hundreds of years, and many will be curious to see them. One of them is the home of the ghostly Dementors: the prison fortress of Azkaban. Let's get into this "how to visit Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy" guide.

Disclaimer: While the creator of the Harry Potter franchise was not directly involved in the creation of Hogwarts Legacy, their comments on social media around transgender people are hurtful and dangerous given the size of their platform.

We’d implore you to read our explainer of the controversy so far, and consider supporting trans rights charities where possible.

Part of the early sections of the story, you will be able to visit Azkaban in Hogwarts Legacy when you reach the quest, Prisoner of Love. However, this quest is exclusive to players in Hufflepuff house

This means if you're in Ravenclaw, Gryffindor, or Slytherin, you won't be able to visit Azkaban. If you're in Hufflepuff, though, with a single prerequisite of being at Level 5, you'll start on a path that first takes you to speak to the portrait of Eldritch Diggory - a former Minister for Magic.

Eventually, you'll head off to visit his descendant, Helen Thistlewood - an ex-auror who wants to take the opportunity to revisit an unsolved case which lead to the wrongful longtime imprisonment of a girl named Anne. To get the answers you seek on your mission to find answers about your new powers, Helen will apparate you right into the entrance to the cells of Azkaban.

The first proper look at Azkaban outside of Harry Potter film, The Order of the Phoenix, the prison is as eerie as you can imagine. With darkened stone corridors and the cries of prisoners echoing throughout, you can almost feel the chill in the air before the Dementors appear.

Without going into full spoilers regarding the interaction with Anne herself, it's a short but gripping scene that's worth the wait.

That's all you need to know in this "visit Azkaban Hogwarts Legacy" how-to guide. For more pointers on the game, check out how to break shields in wizard duels, along with how to perform a finishing move.
