Like any student’s first day at Hogwarts, Hogwarts Legacy will begin with you being sorted into one of the four houses at the school. But, what else will be available when it comes to the Hogwarts Legacy Houses? Can you explore the common rooms, interact with students from each of the houses, have them join you as companions, or plot against another house to cause mischief?

Well, Avalanche Software has put a lot into each of the Hogwarts Legacy Houses and this guide will cover them and give you a brief explanation of what you can expect from them. In addition, to being part of a house, you will meet a variety of Hogwarts Legacy characters and Hogwarts Legacy companions during your time in Hogwarts.

Hogwarts Legacy Houses

Unsurprisingly, Hogwarts Legacy has four houses that you can be selected into and choose: Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff.

Each one has its own Common Room and will unlock different gameplay options for your character.

Students who are sorted into Gryffindor will possess the traits of courage, bravery, chivalry, and confidence.

Finally, the Hufflepuff house is a lower floor, basement area filled with warm lampshades and lighting and given a comfortable homely feel with plants and chairs dotted around, alongside shelves on the wall.

To be selected as a Hufflepuff, you need a strong sense of justice and loyalty, as well as patience and enthusiasm for hard work.

That covers the Hogwarts Legacy houses you can be sorted into and what we know about them. Not much is known about the game’s houses and how they work right now, but we should see and hear more soon.

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.
