Set before all the books and films, Hogwarts Legacy brings the vivid world of a fan’s imagination to life with a Hogwarts unlike anything we’ve seen before that’s fully explorable. Though the name is misleading, the Hogwarts Legacy map size, locations, and more expand far beyond the walls of the school and features many varied locations for you to explore.
The Hogwarts Legacy map size and locations list are undoubtedly big, raising the question of the Hogwarts Legacy length, but it’s also detailed. Depending on your Hogwarts Legacy House, you’ll also gain access to different Hogwarts Legacy common rooms to explore. This guide is based off our time playing for our Hogwarts Legacy review on PS5.

There’s also the all-wizarding village of Hogsmeade to explore, which is dense with interiors to explore, treasures to find, and secrets to uncover. Here is the full map of Hogsmeade:

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.
