What are the differences between PC and PS5 for Hogwarts Legacy?

When choosing a platform, there are multiple things to consider, such as pre-order bonuses, platform differences, and performance capabilities. The pre-order bonuses for each edition across PC and PS5 are the same; however, the PS5 version receives the Haunted Hogsmeade Shop quest as exclusive content. This quest is currently only available on the PS5 version, and it is unclear if it will be released on other platforms in the future. 

A significant consideration when picking a platform is performance. The game's PC version has reported minor performance issues; however, if you have a high-end machine capable of running the game on the recommended PC specs, you should have a smooth experience. The PS5 version contains five graphical modes, including fidelity and performance options. The multiple PS5 graphical options allow you to customize your gameplay experience while maintaining a high graphical quality experience.
