Hogwarts Legacy character customisation is extensive, giving players the opportunity to create their own custom character and choose from a variety of different clothes.

This is all separate from the initial character maker at the beginning of the game and is largely governed by the gear you equip in the game while playing. This gear can change your power and also how your student looks.

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.
