Those planning on playing Hogwarts Legacy on PC may be curious about the game's minimum and recommended specs, and rightly so considering the hardware bloat that's come along over the past year or so.

Luckily, the minimum specs for Hogwarts Legacy aren't too steep, and even the specs for ultra settings at 4k are reasonable compared to most other AAA titles on PC these days. Let's go over what you're going to need hardware-wise for the upcoming Harry Potter game.

Hogwarts Legacy Minimum and Recommended PC Specs

Be sure to check for updates to your graphics driver on release day just to avoid potential crashes and other issues, regardless of your hardware.

Hogwarts Legacy Minimum Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-6600 (3.3 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 1400 (3.2 GHz)
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 4GB or AMD Radeon RX 470 4GB
  • RAM: 16GB
  • DirectX version: DX12
  • Storage Space: 85GB HDD or SSD

PC players can use a HDD instead of an SSD to run the game at lower specifications but an SSD is preferred and HDD load times may not be supported at higher graphical fidelity.

Hogwarts Legacy Recommended / High Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel i7-8700 (3.2 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 (3.6 GHz)
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 1080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT or INTEL Arc A770
  • RAM: 16GB
  • DirectX version: DX12
  • Storage Space: 85GB SSD

You'll need to have the game installed on a SSD to run it on high settings or above.

Hogwarts Legacy Ultra Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-10700K (3.80 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (3.80 GHz)
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
  • RAM: 32GB
  • DirectX version: DX12
  • Storage Space: 85GB SSD

Hogwarts Legacy Ultra 4k Specs

  • OS: 64-bit Windows 10
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-10700K (3.80 GHz) or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X (3.80 GHz)
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti or AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT
  • RAM: 32GB
  • DirectX version: DX12
  • Storage Space: 85GB SSD

The minimum requirements should be easy enough for most computers to meet these days, even the recommended specs are easy enough to meet. You'll have to turn to getting improved hardware if you can't meet the minimum specs, though, or turn to the game on consoles.

Hogwarts Legacy is Delayed — and No, Shouting Accio Won't Make It Get Here Faster https://www.gameskinny.com/qymv7/hogwarts-legacy-is-delayed-and-no-shouting-accio-wont-make-it-get-here-faster https://www.gameskinny.com/qymv7/hogwarts-legacy-is-delayed-and-no-shouting-accio-wont-make-it-get-here-faster Wed, 13 Jan 2021 13:33:27 -0500 Josh Broadwell

Excited about riding a hippogriff through a vast, Harry Potter-themed open world? Well, you won't be doing it any time soon because Warner Bros. Interactive and Portkey Games announced Hogwarts Legacy is delayed until 2022.

The announcement came via the Hogwarts Legacy official Twitter page. WB provided no additional details about the delay's cause or when in 2022 Hogwarts Legacy might release, saying only that it needs time to be what fans expect.

Warner Bros. finally revealed Hogwarts Legacy in September 2020, following several rounds of rumors that turned out to be rather on point, despite the developer denying them at the time.

Players create their own magical student, attend classes at Hogwarts, and do an 1800s version of the usual Harry Potter thing before getting unleashed in a broader world full of wonder and danger. Not much else is known at the time, though hopefully Warner Bros. will magic up some new details sometime later this year.

Warner Bros. Pulls Back the Veil on Hogwarts Legacy in Gameplay Trailer https://www.gameskinny.com/90mup/warner-bros-pulls-back-the-veil-on-hogwarts-legacy-in-gameplay-trailer https://www.gameskinny.com/90mup/warner-bros-pulls-back-the-veil-on-hogwarts-legacy-in-gameplay-trailer Wed, 16 Sep 2020 17:36:13 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Warner Bros. and Portkey Games finally revealed the long-rumored Harry Potter RPG. Dubbed Legacy of Hogwarts, the new Harry Potter game lets players forge their own path and uncover the untold story of the wizarding world long before Harry set foot in Hogwarts.

In short, it's a lot like those Dark Legacy rumors WB claimed were false earlier in 2020, including the outside regions and taking place in the 1800s.

Players create their own witch or wizard character and attend Hogwarts. All the usual classes make their appearance, from care of magical creatures to potions and herbology.

But the adventure lies outside the classroom. Some kind of ancient and forbidden knowledge waits to be uncovered, and everything learned at Hogwarts gets put to the test in the real world.

The Hogwarts Legacy trailer showed glimpses of several locations, from caves and ancient ruins to fields full of magical creatures both friend and foe.

The real test is deciding how the story unfolds. Once players get their hands on the Ancient Magic, it's up to them whether they give in to the dark side.

Hogwarts Legacy launches sometime in 2021 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series family, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Hogwarts Legacy news as it develops.
