Is Hogwarts Legacy Coming To Game Pass?

Hogwarts Legacy will release on all mainstream platforms, but will it come to Game Pass?

With the release of Hogwarts Legacy, the fans of the game have swarmed up the internet with their questions about the game. They ask on online forums about the Hardware Requirements or if it will be supported on all platforms or not. And nowadays, with a few titles releasing on Xbox’s Game Pass, a lot of fans are asking if Hogwarts Legacy will be coming there or not.

Key Highlights
  • Hogwarts Legacy won’t be available on Xbox Game Pass upon release.
  • There is a chance that it will come to the service after some time.
  • The game will release on PC and Next-Gen consoles on 10th February.
  • At the same time, it will release on Xbox One and PS4 later in April.

If you’ve been a Potterhead, then you’d be waiting for Hogwarts Legacy since the day it was announced. I mean, who doesn’t want to live in a separate world filled with wizards, witches, magic, and, more important, Hogwarts? The game is set to release on February 10th, 2023. So, for all the fans who were waiting for any official news on the game’s release platforms or where it will be available on release, we have the news for you.

Hogwarts Legacy On Game Pass

The game is available for Pre-Order on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch. But, when it comes to Xbox Game Pass or the Ultimate Pass, the game won’t be released there. We’re still waiting for any news from Microsoft or Avalanche Software to confirm if it will be available in the future or not.

It is upsetting news because we know that a lot of the players were looking forward to it. That is to keep in mind that Xbox Game Pass is a subscription-based service. It provides players with 100 different games to play for a small fee. A lot of players utilize it to play the Halo series, among many other games. Even though it isn’t coming there, you’ll find a lot of interesting games to play on the Xbox Game Pass.

But if you are planning to get the Hogwarts Legacy, you can get it on your preferred device. Whether it’s PC or Xbox consoles, both support the game. And the game is going to release on PC, Xbox Series S, and PS5 on February 10th, 2023. As for the Xbox One, it will release on April 4th, 2023, with the PS4. But, you’ll have to pay its full price, unlike with the Game Pass.

The Standard Edition on PC and Xbox One costs $59.99. Whereas the Deluxe Edition costs $69.99 on both of these platforms. If you opt for the Xbox Series X, it will cost $69.99 and $79.99 for both Standard and Deluxe editions, respectively. If you get the Deluxe Edition, you’ll get to play the game 72 Hours before its official release. That will give you a head start compared to other players, and you’ll be able to play the game without facing spoilers.

Final Thoughts

Even though the Hogwarts Legacy has drawn to itself quite a controversy due to the Author of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, the support for the game is still going strong. Potterheads from all over the world are waiting for the highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy to release.

The game takes players back to Hogwarts, but now, it is set in the 19th century instead of during the late 20th century. Players get to experience the magical world a long time before Harry Potter and his fight against He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Not only that, you will get to attend classes, go on quests and learn some powerful magic spells. Unlike other Harry Potter games, we have a Day and Night cycle with a dynamic weather system.

We are fully excited for the game to release and are hopeful that it stays true to our expectations.
