There can’t be many Harry Potter fans who haven’t played Hogwarts Legacy for now, but those who haven’t yet can indulge in a late Christmas treat before the new year hits us on the butt.
Take a look at Hogwarts Legacy in action below!
PlayStation users may get stuck in the first moments of Hogwarts Legacy now through a free trial, although it comes with some troll-sized caveats.
Hogwarts Legacy is available to play for free through PlayStation Plus Premium’s Game Trials feature, which is not… a popular feature. Game trials are available for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers, giving them the opportunity to experience certain versions. These are demos for which you actually have to pay a subscription. But if you’re already subscribed to PlayStation Plus Premium for the catalog of classic games, you might as well take a look.
It is also my solemn duty to point out that this trial lasts a total of 45 minutes, during which I can almost guarantee that you will not even make it into the open world. Maybe you can run it quickly, but I’d be inclined to doubt it.
When you compare this to the five hour trial for Cyberpunk 2077it’s hard not to explode Hogwarts Legacy like just a little miserly. 45 minutes is nowhere near enough time to get a feel for an open-world RPG, let alone one that forces you to play through a lengthy prologue.
However, if you really want to get an idea of Hogwarts Legacy and refuse to pay for it, that’s your best bet at the moment.
