Hogwarts Legacy is one of the most anticipated video games of 2022. While fans wait patiently for the announcement of the release date, the first leaks regarding the editions available at launch appear online. In addition to the Standard edition that can be pre-ordered at this time from many retailers, the game set in the magical world of JK Rowling will be able to count on at least one other edition, the Deluxe, which apparently will include several physical and digital bonuses.
A Reddit user discovered this information by sifting through the code on the official Hogwarts Legacy website, which hides information about the game’s editions. In addition to the Standard Edition, whose pre-order bonuses have not yet been revealed, there will be a Deluxe Edition with the following content:
- Thestral Mount
- Dark Arts Cosmetic Pack
- Dark Arts Battle Arena
- Dark Arts Garrison Hat
- 72 hours early access
- Kelpie Robe
- Steel Case
- Floating Ancient Magic Wand with Book
But what exactly are all these objects? We know that in Hogwarts Legacy, it will be possible to fly on your broom and hippogriffs, and the first, the “Thestral Mount,” is exactly what the name suggests, an exclusive mount that will allow you to fly on the back of a winged Thestral horse. The next three packs are dedicated to the Dark Arts, which we know are present in the game, and are a DLC with cosmetic items, a battle arena, and a headgear. This is followed by an invitation to play Hogwarts Legacy three days in advance, a Steelcase for collectors, and two other very interesting items.
The “Kelpie Robe” translates as “Kelpie’s Robe.” The Kelpie is a water demon seen in the Fantastic Beasts spin-off series, and the outfit may mean skin, but nothing is certain at the moment. It could also be a physical bonus like a figurine and the last item, the old wand with a book. It is clear that for Steelcase, some bonuses may only be included in the physical Deluxe edition, so some items may not be present in case of pre-order of the digital edition.
In all cases, this is a rather important leak, which we will be able to confirm in a few months when the release date of Hogwarts Legacy will finally be revealed. We remind you that the game will debut during the Christmas period on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC
