Does Hogwarts Legacy have Early Access on PS4 or Xbox One?

If you are wondering if the Deluxe Edition of Hogwarts Legacy will allow you to access this version of the game sooner, like the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S Editions did, we have bad news. There is no Early Access Period for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Other than the Early Access Benefit, all pre-order bonuses for last gen and current gen consoles are the same.

One of the first places you'll explore in Hogwarts Legacy is the titular Castle. We have great guides for some of the puzzles and collectables you can find there.
