How to install Hogwarts Legacy on Windows

In order to install this game on your Windows PC whether that be Windows 10 or Windows 11, just follow the instructions below.

  1. Choose where you want to download the game from:
  2. Once you are done downloading it, click the Hogwarts Legacy icon on your desktop or start menu and enjoy.

Today we will highlight some reasons why we think you should definitely give this game a try especially those of you who were or are on edge whether to try this game or not. I got the game a few days earlier than most of you, that is because I got the Deluxe edition which includes a bunch of extras at a higher price, a price that I was willing to pay and I am not disappointed.

I love the way you can basically create any character you want, choose the race, hairstyle, you name it, the character is customizable and that is a big deal, this game makes everyone feel ‘included’ and it could be one of the reasons why even the likes of IGN have rated this game a 9/10, I bump it to a 9.5/10, I am having fun so far and yes, I am playing as the good guy in this game, I mean I did choose the house of Salazar Slytherin to start my journey lol.

Anyway, you should also note that the game does require your PC to be above average, the minimum requirements(listed at the bottom of this post) of this game say that you need at least 16GB of Ram, I am sure some computers with less might be able to run it but I would double check my computer is up to-date including the graphic card etc before buying the game, nothing sucks more than buying a game that doesn’t work on your PC. Let us know in the comments what you think about this game if you decide to try it.
