Arguably, Harry Potter is one of the most influential works of pop culture in the history of media. Starting from the books. the series has been successful in every form of media from movies to video games. Many games based on the movies have come out but we haven’t got a dedicated AAA project from the franchise yet.
However, that is changing with the release of Hogwarts Legacy in the last quarter of 2022. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is releasing the game through its Portkey Games label. It’s one of the most highly anticipated games launching in the near future due to its roleplaying and combat elements.
Footage of the game and every trailer has made fans even more excited about the video game. Leaks for such big games are very common and, apparently, Hogwarts Legacy is no exception to that rule. Recently, a new leak for the game gives us a good look at what the game will offer.
While searching the source code of the official website of Hogwarts Legacy, a leaker found a list of things the game will offer when you buy it. User u/opalelement on Reddit is responsible for this discovery and they posted the findings on r/HarryPotterGame. Additionally, the leak has also been confirmed by the moderators of the sub-Reddit to be authentic.
The first name that the leaker found in the source web of the official website is the Threstal Mount. If you are aware of the Harry Potter lore, you would know that this creature is a flying beast that only people who have encountered death can see. So, having a flying mount as one of the extras in Hogwarts Legacy is a great thing to see.
Also in this list are some things specifically related to the dark arts. These include a Dark Arts Cosmetic Pack, a Dark Arts Battle Arena, and a Dark Arts Garrison Hat. It seems like Hogwarts Legacy is giving the dark side of magic its due diligence, even though it may be a DLC.
Next up, text in the source revealed 72-hour early access to the game. You will most probably obtain this if you pre-order Hogwarts Legacy because that is what mostly happens. A lot of “Digital Only” and “Digital Deluxe” tags were also there but the leaker has no idea what things fall into this category.
Some theories have also been presented by the leaker regarding the last three things in the source. Floating Ancient Magic Wand with Book is another item and it may be a physical bonus. According to the leaker, WB has given some physical content alongside launches and the same may be the case with Hogwarts Legacy.
There might be another physical item on the list in the form of a Steel Case. It can be a Best Buy exclusive, according to the leaker, as the same happened with Back 4 Blood. LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga had a similar Steelbook edition at Best Buy, so Hogwarts Legacy may have a similar deal.
Finally, the last item on the list is a Kelpie Robe and it may be a digital exclusive or a pre-order bonus. Digital exclusive skins have become a norm in WB games so this might be true for Hogwarts Legacy. However, keep in mind that all of this is speculation from the leaker, and nothing is confirmed as of now. As they found these things in the source, there is no guarantee we will see them in the game because they can be removed.
