You can expect to spend a significant amount of time exploring the vast, magical world of Hogwarts Legacy. In fact, it might take longer to beat it than many players anticipated.
Hogwarts Legacy time to beat revealed
Speaking with Gamereactor, Hogwarts Legacy Lead Designer Kelly Murphy said the game’s length is difficult to estimate due to different playstyles. He estimates you can expect to spend 40 hours or more on a first-time playthrough of the main story alone. However, if you choose to complete all of the side quests and explore every nook and cranny of the game, the total playtime can reach well over 100 hours. This lines up with rumors making the rounds over the last few weeks.
It’s worth noting that even the game’s developers, who have been working on Hogwarts Legacy for six years, have not seen every part of the game. Murphy stated that he hasn’t discovered parts of Hogwarts despite his extensive time on the project. This just goes to show the level of detail and depth that has been put into the game.
In short, Hogwarts Legacy is not a game that you can rush through in a single weekend. Instead, it’s a massive, immersive experience that will take a significant amount of time to fully explore and complete. But for fans of the Harry Potter universe, the time spent in the game is sure to be an enjoyable and magical journey.
