What is a Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy?

A Hufflepuff's dream.

Hogwarts Legacy promises to allow you to experience being a witch or wizard in your own unique way. One of the ways you can interact with the world is through its magical beasts, both in the open world and inside a Vivarium. Vivariums are unique biomes in that you can raise and care for magical creatures. Here's what we know about them in Hogwarts Legacy.

Where can you find a Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy?

Vivariums are found in the Room of Requirement in Hogwarts Legacy. While we will likely only have access to a meadow-like Vivarium in the early game, thanks to this gameplay showcase, we know that more than one Vivarium will be unlockable throughout the game.

Each Vivarium is much larger than its door makes it appear. The meadow-like Vivarium is certainly bigger than the Room of Requirement itself. Like the Room of Requirement, a Vivarium can be customized using the Conjuration system to create an aesthetically appealing home for your beasts or to conjure more functional items that help you care for them.

Magical beasts housed in Vivariums will need to be cared for by the player by being fed and interacted with. You can pet your magical creatures or play with various toys with them. You can even name them. Some creatures that we spotted in the showcase include Nifflers, Kneazels, and Mooncalves. Magical creatures that are well cared for will provide you with crafting materials for upgrading your gear.
