Packed with an intriguing main story, a variety of side quests, and an open world, Hogwarts Legacy is a grand adventure into the popular wizarding world. But what is the Hogwarts Legacy length and how long to beat? Unlike any Harry Potter game before it, Avalanche’s game has a variety of stuff for you to do.

With the variety of different Hogwarts Legacy mission types it looks like you might be busy for quite a while as you learn more about the world and Hogwarts Legacy characters. You’re in for a surprise with the star-studded Hogwarts Legacy voice actors and cast that you’ll encounter as you do so and the variety of other options in Hogwarts Legacy.

The Hogwarts Legacy length is about 35 hours for a standard playthrough of the game, based on our time playing for our Hogwarts Legacy review. A completionist run will take upwards of 70 hours.

This is standard fare for RPG games, with many of the best RPG games taking at least 30-40 hours to beat normally. Likewise, full completions of Hogwarts Legacy, including side quests and collectibles, will likely take significantly longer than a playthrough focused on the main story campaign.

Nevertheless, you’ll no doubt have plenty of time to explore and familiarise yourself with the version of Hogwarts and the wider wizarding world portrayed in Hogwarts Legacy.

We’ll have to wait just a little bit longer to find out more about the Hogwarts Legacy length and how long it takes to beat the game. In the meantime, read all about an iconic Harry Potter location that won’t be in Hogwarts Legacy or a theory on how Harry Potter could be in Hogwarts Legacy after all based on the leaked trophy list.

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.
