Sony’s marketing arrangement with spellbinding PS5 and PS4 game Hogwarts Legacy will extend to an exclusive quest – although this is the first we’re hearing of it. Fans spotted an additional bullet point on PS Store pre-orders for the game, and the tidbit has since been confirmed by developer Avalanche’s community manager, Chandler Wood.
“The PlayStation exclusive quest comes with any PlayStation version of the game,” he confirmed. “It is not tied to pre-orders. Pre-orders on PlayStation will get you the Felix Felicis potion recipe. More details are coming soon.” It’s unclear whether the aforementioned potion recipe will be exclusive to the PlayStation version of the game as well, but the wording implies it may be.
Much like previous PlayStation extras, like Spider-Man’s exclusivity in Marvel’s Avengers, this is unlikely to go down well with fans on other platforms. The upshot is we imagine the additional content will be largely inconsequential, as these exclusives often tend to be. Nevertheless, it’s another good reason to pre-order on PS5 and PS4, eh?
This message has been updated from a previous version to make clearer Push Square's stance on the topic:
Hogwarts Legacy does not exist in a vacuum. There are important discussions being had about the views and opinions held by the creator of the Harry Potter universe – views and opinions which we do not agree with.
Our goal is to create and foster a positive environment for people – all people – to discuss and celebrate video games, not to amplify ignorance or provide a forum for unconstructive arguments. As per our community rules, we do not accept any form of hate speech on our platform.
Honestly, I don't think this overly matters too much. People can moan, but it will be such a small thing to add to the game, that it won't bare any impact to the overall story and game itself.
@EquiinoxGII Depends how useful Felix Felicis is and if it’s exclusive too. Considering it’s ludicrously overpowered in canon, I’d wager it’s not quite as useful in the game.
EH HE HEH!!!!!
Maybe they should stop paying for these things instead of increasing the cost of their consoles 🤷♂️🙃
They kind of walked into that one huh?
Game is going to sale massively. Not really into harry potter, but this looks very good. Next year is going to be insane ff16, dead space remake, starfield, re4 remake, Hogwarts, spider man2, Zelda, and who know what else.
Cannot wait for this, hours to be spent sat in front of the TV with my partner with this one I reckon!
Well, you can still play Hogwarts Legacy on Xbox. Starfield on the other hand...
@Americansamurai1 Don't worry, at least two of those will slip into 2024.
Removed - unconstructive
An ode to the loyal fans of the franchise. Harry Potter did manage to slip into the top 10 best selling PS1 games 1 year after PS2 launch.
I didn't know companies still do the exclusive quest thing, that was so ps4/xbox one generation thing to do. This won't stop people from buying the game on their preferred platform over a single quest.
Cool, always up for extra side quests!
