These are the four difficulty settings and how they will change your experience playing Hogwarts Legacy.

  • Story: When you pick the Story setting, the combat encounters will be at their easiest. You can expect to breeze through them, and combat will be a background addition to the game. This is ideal for anyone who simply wants to go through the story and not worry too much about the gameplay.
  • Easy: This is the best option if you want a little gameplay challenge, partially thinking about the spells and equipment you use in Hogwarts Legacy.
  • Normal: For those who want a standard gameplay experience working through Hogwarts Legacy, the Normal option is suitable. The combat encounters won’t be too challenging, but you will want to consider the type of spells and equipment you use while playing.
  • Hard: If you’re seeking the biggest gameplay challenges, and difficult combat encounters, the Hard difficulty in Hogwarts Legacy is expected to give you the biggest one. We only recommend this to players who want to enrich themselves in the game’s combat mechanics.

These settings are selected at the start of the game. You can adjust them in the Gameplay Options menu in the middle of your game if the settings are too easy or difficult for your preferred style.
