While Hogwarts Legacy is aiming to let you live your wizarding world dreams, one thing it won’t let you do is play the magical sport of Quidditch.
Quidditch’s absence from Hogwarts Legacy has been confirmed on the game’s official FAQ page. Fortunately, Hogwarts Legacy will still feature a ton of flying on brooms to give you that feeling of soaring through the sky.
“Quidditch is not playable in Hogwarts Legacy,” the official FAQ reads. “However, broom flight for traversal and broom race challenges are part of the game. Players can also fly brooms to explore new and familiar locations surrounding Hogwarts Castle. “
Playable Quidditch has been a thing in the past, and the sport has even had its own game in Quidditch World Cup.
The rest of the FAQ is well worth a read as it gives a pretty in-depth breakdown of what fans can expect from Hogwarts Legacy when it is released on February 10, 2023, including how much of Hogwarts players can explore, what kinds of classes they can take, how leveling up works, and more.
It also discusses Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling’s involvement, who has become notable in recent years for her transphobic comments. She is “not involved in the creation of the game, but as creator of the wizarding world and one of the world’s greatest storytellers, her extraordinary body of writing is the foundation of all projects in the Wizarding World.”
