The time has finally come for fans across the world to step into their very own Hogwarts adventure. Hogwarts Legacy launches into an early access period tomorrow, Feb. 7, for those who pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. Those that simply buy the regular edition of the game will have to wait until Feb. 10 to create their own character and start traipsing around the Wizarding World.
All fans, regardless of their pre-order status, will be able to take advantage of Twitch and Hogwarts Legacy’s new partnership. Together, Twitch and Hogwarts Legacy are introducing drops for the game that can give players free in-game rewards simply for watching streamers.
