Hogwarts Legacy demo - can you try the game

Do you want to know if there is a Hogwarts Legacy demo? Here is whether or not you can play early or give the game a try before you buy

Hogwarts Legacy Demo: A wizard can be seen attacking a creature

Are you curious about a Hogwarts Legacy demo and looking to try it before you buy? Let us take you through whether or not WB has announced or plans to announce a demo for the highly anticipated RPG.

Demos have become less and less common these days, but Sony introducing PS Plus Premium trials and a number of big games releasing demos does mean that more games are seeing ways for you to play before the release or buying it after it has come out. So, it wouldn’t be unheard of to see one for a game as big as Hogwarts Legacy is.

Hogwarts Legacy does not have a demo, meaning there is no way to give the game a try or play a portion for free.

WB Interactive Entertainment hasn’t announced any kind of way to try the highly anticipated RPG and we likely won’t get one until far after the launch of the game. This will be disappointing to many players who were looking forward to checking it out or giving it a try. However, you will be able to play ahead of release thanks to Hogwarts Legacy early access.

That covers if you can play a Hogwarts Legacy demo and give the game a try. If you are still on the fence, check out all the Hogwarts Legacy characters and Hogwarts Legacy spells in the game to give you a taste of what awaits.

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.
