In a Twitter post, the company specified that these times are only for consoles. PC users will have to wait a while longer to see when the pre-load will begin as well as the 72-hour early access. For those who purchased the game on consoles, the Global Times for the Early Access period of Hogwarts Legacy will be at midnight in your region. While some Xbox users might change their region to play the game earlier, PS5 owners will have to wait until midnight.

This is great given how many people want to play the game already. While some users have gotten early copies, the majority of gamers are just hoping for February 7 to get here. While it isn’t far away, the wait becomes longer by the hour. Still, many leaks suggest that the game is worth the wait as it is a great and polished game. However, we’ll have to wait for the review embargo to lift on February 6 to check what critics say. In the meantime, you can still pre-order the game if you want to get into the Early Access period of Hogwarts Legacy. Also, Xbox users can pre-load the game right now and PS5 players will have to wait until February 5.
