Below, you can find an overview of exactly what the Hogwarts Legacy House Cup is, as well as its incarnation in the game itself. That way you know when you can expect it during the Hogwarts Legacy quests for the main story. If you are on the fence about buying it then all the information from this guide is from our Hogwarts Legacy review playthrough, which you can read.
Hogwarts Legacy House Cup
The Hogwarts Legacy House Cup is a sweepstakes competition being held by PlayStation where you can win a PS5 and the Collector’s Edition of the game. The Sweepstakes will run until February 16, 2023.
In order to be entered and have a chance of winning, you will need to complete a number of tasks and challenges on the Hogwarts Legacy page on the PlayStation website. These tasks are simple questions, or just ask you to visit the game’s store page or watch a trailer.
How to enter the Hogwarts Legacy House Cup
To enter the Hogwarts Legacy House Cup, you can log in with your PSN account and complete the tasks on the PlayStation website here. From there, simply complete the four quests to enter and boost your House’s chance of winning.
Once you have entered you will have a chance to win the two prizes. So, be sure to get on it while you wait to jump into the game yourself.
Hogwarts Legacy House Cup in-game mission
The House Cup also features in the Hogwarts Legacy game. In fact, it is the final quest that can be completed after you have finished the main campaign. In this quest, you will go to the House Cup ceremony which caps off your year as a student.
In order to access this quest, you will need to be around level 34. So, you will have to do a lot of grinding and side content on the Hogwarts Legacy map. For tips on how to level up in Hogwarts Legacy, our guide has some useful advice.
With that, you now know everything about the Hogwarts Legacy House Cup. If you are jumping into the game during this initial release period, be sure to read through our Hogwarts Legacy walkthrough for even more tips, guides, and help as you play.
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.
