Hogwarts Legacy is the exciting upcoming return to the Wizarding World in video games. Your adventure will have you attending magical classes and experimenting with the Unforgivable Curses as you balance the line between good and evil. After the game was delayed to 2023, we have to wait a little longer to get our hands on it, but we know a bit about what you will get for preordering it. Here is a breakdown of what you get for preordering Hogwarts Legacy.

What do you get when you preorder Hogwarts Legacy?

There are three different preorderable packs available for Hogwarts Legacy. If you are not interested in the more expensive packs, you can currently preorder the Standard Edition that only comes with the game at the standard $70. The Deluxe Edition will run you an extra $10 and the third and final available preorder option is the Collector’s Edition for $300.

If you preorder the Standard Edition, you are mainly getting the base game. However, some stores will offer little bonuses for getting this version. If you preorder from Best Buy, you will receive a $10 gift card. As of this writing, that is the only store-exclusive bonus that has been announced. We expect that there will be more from certain retailers as the release dates get closer.

What is included in the Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition

You will get a few in-game rewards if you don’t mind opening your wallet a little wider for the more expensive Deluxe Edition. This edition will let you have access to the game 72 hours earlier than the Standard Edition. You will also receive the Dark Arts Pack that comes with a Thestral Mount, the Dark Arts Cosmetic Set, and the Dark Arts Battle Arena which is located in the Forbidden Forest. If you get the Standard Edition of the game, you can purchase the Dark Arts Pack separately later. This battle arena can be entered to compete for various cosmetic items to add to your wardrobe.

If you don’t want the Thestral Mount, you will also receive an Onyx Hippogriff Mount. Both of these mounts can be pulled out in the open world at any time and ridden around the grounds. Finally, you will get the Dark Arts Garrison Hat.

What is included in the Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition?

The Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition is a physical-only purchase that will set you back $300. All of the Deluxe Edition content is included with this purchase as well as a physical open book figure and wand that connect together. When you plug in the book and place the wand on top, it “magically” floats in place. A steelbook case is also included with this purchase. The big reason this edition is so expensive is the book and wand combo, though.
