Hogwarts Legacy’s highest-tier Collector’s Edition could come with a statue of a book that has a floating magic wand suspended above it. This will apparently use magnets to create the illusion, and is referenced in code discovered on the game’s official website. It’s worth noting that these files are not public and could include outdated or inaccurate information, but they are legit and were successfully extracted by Reddit.
The Collector’s Edition also apparently includes 72 hours early access to the game, a steel case, and various other pieces of DLC, including a Thestral Mount, a Kelpie Robe, the Dark Arts Cosmetics Pack, the Dark Arts Battle Arena, and the Dark Arts Garrison Hat. Alternatively, a Digital Deluxe Edition will come with all of the above, minus the steel case (obviously) and the nifty floating magic wand statue. Of course, you’ll also be able to simply buy the bog-standard version of the game if you prefer.
We’re not a huge fan of the 72 hours early access, especially as this isn’t a multiplayer release, where this practice is a little more common. Nevertheless, we’re excited to learn more about these special editions when they’re officially revealed; hopefully this all points to an impending release date for the game.

I'm unsure of whether I'll get the Collector's Edition but I'll wait and see what it looks like, probably either the deluxe or standard depending on what the cosmetics look like.
I'll prob get the digital deluxe - my no1 anticpated game of the year if it's out this year!
Does this even have a release date? Play 72 hours early before when XD
Also not a fan of the play days early thing. Just a way to get people to spend more money and release spoilers on the net
Imagine having no life to the point that you're scouring web page code for such details... I pitty these people.
Not unusual though, FIFA and some other games have been the same being released earlier if you spend more money.
One way to force people to buy those editions I suppose if they want to play it early.
@Danloaded No release date yet. But you've got to assume these collector's editions will be announced alongside the date, as was the case with God of War recently.
@hoffa007 Think it makes a little more sense with sports games than story-based ones. But you're right, not entirely uncommon!
Oops. Sorry. I thought symbols instead of letters would be enough to avoid the expletive alarms. Will try again.
Hopefully this edition, if it's legit, is not snatched up in seconds by scalper b*******, and the people who want this have a chance to get it at retail price.
It sounds nice but I hate those early access. 3 days early really pushes people to spend more money to get access for what should have been the release date in the first place. It may not seem like a long wait, but it's not nice for fans that are excited to play on day 1.
I remember when MS was doing that with Forza, it meant that people lost out on getting to play the game over the weekend unless they pay up. Wouldn't be as bothersome if it was a Tuesday launch and still get it in time for Friday for the weekend. It also means having to be extra careful for spoilers in a good story game

I’ll stick to the vanilla version, thanks. Just release it on time!
I might end up picking up the collector’s edition
I'm looking forward to Hogwarts but I doubt I'll fork over more money for early access.
@get2sammyb yeah thinking about it you are right with it being odd with story driven games, no advantage.
Floating book statue. Yeah no
It’s not a Harry Potter game. He isn’t even mentioned in it. It’s set 150 years before Harry Potter was born!!
I can’t wait for the release date to finally be revealed! Looking forward to having a preordered game on my PS5!
Looking forward to the reviews for this. It’s definitely my #3 most anticipated game for the rest of the year behind GoW and TLOU, but not ready to put down money until I see some recommendations and extended gameplay.
The only collectors edition I ever bought was Jakuza 6 as it was practical with the shot glasses😂😅.
I’ll break my ‘practicality’ rule if the highest tier is priced accordingly. £200+ & I’m out & obviously must include the game.
I would love to get the Collector's Edition. Would be my first one, no game has ever interested me this much. Problem is, where I live, it'll probably cost like three times more.
Can’t wait 😁
After Avatar, I’m praying this isn’t pushed back to 2023 🙏
I love anything from Rowlings universe, so this is an easy day one buy for me.
@sjbsixpack That's very true. But I just think that the name Harry Potter is bigger than the boy who lived. It's a name that resonates with an extremely large portion of the population. Myself included. I'll admit I really don't like the films, but through osmosis and just living in the UK, Harry Potter really was a massive part of my childhood.
Obviously WB want names like 'Wizarding World' to be the new norm for the universe, but it'll never replace 'Harry Potter' as the name that just encompasses everything in that universe.
>72 hours early access
I hate that. Let's sell a super expensive edition, so people can get early access and let them ruin the game for the people who refuse to pay overprice? Yep. Such a brilliant idea. Especially in a age where its almost a race to see who can spoil the game the fastest.
Looking forward to this, just need a release date so I can plan for the rest of the year. GOW and Calisto Protocol are my must plays, along with this. Need the date! 😁
@rawzeku and HOW exactly are people going to ruin it????? 🤦🤦
@Teddie-bear @rawzeku Don't you mean paying money to beta test broken games before the masses get it? I'll never understand the thrill of paying for early access to an offline game. You literally get the worst possible experience for the most money!
You're kinda right about spoilers and all but even Sony and Nintendo games launch with issues in need of patches these days. They should pay players to test it early, selling the privilege for money is like selling sand at a beach. Except there's lines at the register!
As a non potter fan i cant wait to get my hands on this game..it looks simply stunning..not a big fan of games being 72 hours early (24 hours max as a little thankyou for buying the all singing,wallet chewing edition) as there are people out there that just have to spoil the story for everybody else..the lead up to xmas is going to be very expensive for me this year..
@Djsparkz93 well there are people that will speed run the heck out of the game and post spoiler vids all over the tinternet...look at elden ring etc..the intraweb is full of these glitching monsters..
@Djsparkz93 Quite easy to spoil narratives
_ _ _ _ _ killed _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Edit: or more recently several people had TLOU2 spoiled before the game even came out. I did on a completely unrelated YouTube video and I was avoiding all TLOU content.
Title and subcaption reads like the game had leaked, not details. I may just be hungover or is the assumption that if the details are leaking someone has the game? I would just assume it's an inside job.
I’m not one to purchase special collector editions, but I am leaning toward buying the standard version on release, or soon after release. We’ll see. I’ve been getting back into the HP universe again lately. It has a really excellent lore and there’s huge potential for this game.
Hoping they share a release date trailer soon, really excited about the game still!
