Sometimes, the excitement for your next class in Hogwarts is unbearable, which means you’ll want to find out how to advance time in Hogwarts Legacy. This will change it from night to day, or vice versa, almost instantaneously, meaning you can do whatever is next on your quest list.
No matter what is next on your Hogwarts Legacy main quests list, you should always spend time exploring and testing out all Hogwarts Legacy spells in your free time. But we understand that wanting to get your classes out of the way, so here’s what you need to do to pass the time in Hogwarts Legacy, which we learned while playing the game for our Hogwarts Legacy review.
To advance the time of day in Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll need to open the map screen and press the right analogue stick in, or ‘R3’. This will change it to night or day.
Considering there are some Hogwarts Legacy classes and lessons that rely on a certain time of the day, you’ll probably want to do this often if you’re hoping to move on to the next part of the story. This can also be done if you just enjoy exploring more at a different time of day.
That’s how to advance time in Hogwarts Legacy. However, we recommend heading out at night and spending time at the Hogwarts Legacy Dark Arts Battle Arena, to practise those Hogwarts Legacy Unforgivable Curses, if you desire to. You can also find even more tips and guides in our Hogwarts Legacy walkthrough hub.
Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.
While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
