Hogwarts Legacy has revealed its Collector’s Edition and the bonuses that will come with it, and it’s mightily expensive!
The new release from Portkey Games is one of the most anticipated games of the entire decade, with fans excited by the prospect of being given the keys to Hogwarts castle, and having the opportunity to explore iconic locations such as Hogsmeade and the Forbidden Forest.
We’ve received a new dump of information over the last few days, as Gamescom has played host to a new trailer, showcasing some more gameplay.
That focused heavily on Salazar Slytherin, leading many to speculate that the storyline was exclusively for players who are sorted into Slytherin, as opposed to Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Gryffindor.
And we’ve now got a close look at what the Collector’s Edition is going to feature, and what you’ll be getting for your money.
Hogwarts Legacy Collector’s Edition: What do you get for your money?
It doesn’t seem as though the Collector’s Edition has been officially confirmed but Gamesradar carries a report outlining exactly what is included when you decide to pre-order the title.
The release will come in a Collector’s Edition Box and will have the game included in a steel case, with the Hogwarts insignia.
The main selling point, though, will be the awesome life-size floating wand that has a book base. Judging by the picture, it looks pretty awesome and is going to be a key reason for fans pre-ordering this version of the game.
You’ll also get the Dark Arts Pack included, which has a Dark Arts Cosmetic Set, a Thestral Mount and the Dark Arts Battle Arena.
Also included is a Kelpie Robe that can be worn in-game, 72 hours early access for the title, and a Dark Arts Garrison Hat.
The 72 hours of early access will give players access on February 7th, 2023, as opposed to February 10th, 2023, which is the release date for the standard edition.
There has been some concern over pricing, as it is listed to cost just under $500 in Australia. Hat would mean it costs $350 in the United States and just under £300 in the UK but that isn’t right, as confirmed by Chandler Wood, the game’s community manager on Twitter.
He tweeted: “That pricing is not correct in USD. You’re looking at a conversion of a different region’s pricing.”
That appears to confirm the legitimacy of the Collector’s Edition and is likely to put some minds at ease over the pricing.
However, Wood has also confirmed a previous report from Gamesradar that claimed the Collector’s Edition would cost $300. That makes it likely to cost over £250 in the UK.
That’s a big chunk of change.
