Can I Run Hogwarts Legacy On My Computer?

The release of Hogwarts Legacy is fairly far on the horizon but we do know that it will be available on both the previous gen and new-gen PlayStation and Xbox consoles and on Windows PC.

Official minimum and recommended system requirements are likely some way off, but we have listed below the best current estimates of what they’re likely to be which should give a reasonable indication. These are likely to change somewhat closer to the game’s release, however.

If you aren’t sure of the specs of your current PC, checkout our how to look up your PC specifications guide and see if it has what it takes to play the game. If not we have taken the liberty to list some pre-built and self-build gaming PCs that will run the game on the settings you desire.

Hogwarts Legacy Game Details

  • Release Date : TBC 2022 (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, Microsoft Windows)

Hogwarts Legacy is a game set in the Harry Potter universe but will be an original adventure set during the 1800s. Players will take control of their own custom character who is a student at the eponymous Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry, and will be able to explore an open world which will consist of the school itself, the nearby Hogsmeade Village and the Forbidden Forest, among other locations. Players will attend lessons, learn and practice spells, brew potions, tame magical beasts, involve themselves in various misadventures and we assume, play Quidditch. RPG elements of the game will extend to a morality system, and of course, being able to pick your own house.

What Gaming PC Do We Recommend To Play Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy on the lowest settings at 1080p will likely need at least a $600 self-build PC. If you’re turning the graphical presets up to the max then a $1,500 self-build PC is what you’ll require, or potentially even a $2,000 self-build gaming PC if you’re thinking of switching the resolution up to 1440p or 4K.

Building a PC isn’t for everyone of course, and if you don’t fancy the prospect then a pre-built gaming PC for under $800 will be fine to play the game on the low settings at 1080p resolution. Again though higher graphical presets will need something more like a $1,500 pre-build for  1080p gameplay or potentially a $2,000 pre-build for 1440p or 4K gaming.
