Hogwarts Legacy Deluxe Edition – is it worth it?

The question is—dark wizard or good wizard?

Trying to decide which version of Hogwarts Legacy to purchase may be a stressful time. There are lots of factors to weigh, such as whether the cosmetics and Dark Arts added items are really necessary, especially if you're playing as a good wizard or witch, or if you want to spend some extra money for an already full, semi-pricey game. Well, I've purchased the Deluxe Edition, and I'm here to tell you, from my own experience, whether it's worth it or not and hopefully make your decision a little bit easier.

Although it may not seem like quite the difference when comparing the Standard and Deluxe, let me tell you, the Deluxe includes so much more than just simple cosmetics. The Standard is just the base game, with nothing else included, and costs $59.99, and the Deluxe Edition is $10 more, costing about $69.99. Here is everything that you get with the Deluxe Edition:

  • The Base Game
  • Onyx Hippogriff Mount
  • Thestral Mount
  • Dark Arts Cosmetic Set (this includes some Death Eater robes)
  • Dark Arts Garrison Hat
  • Dark Arts Battle Arena

Now, with that being said, do all these add-ons make the Deluxe Edition worth it? In my opinion, when purchasing a game I know I'll enjoy and play to its completion, I will always look for the best, most full experience that I can. The base game has a lot already within it, but for me, the Dark Arts Battle Arena is honestly the main reason that the Deluxe outweighs it. This is more than just cosmetics, but a full arena with several waves of enemies you get to defeat by using only the Unforgivable curses.

If the Deluxe was anything more than just $10 added on, it may not be all that worth it. However, for that price, I think you have a great deal on just a little bit more content that will 100% make your experience more enjoyable. Of course, if it's a decision based on how much money you currently have to spend, do what you can, but if you have the option, you won't be disappointed in that extra $10 dollars spent.
