Hogwarts Legacy players are getting new DLC in February

Hogwarts Legacy players are getting new DLC in February

Hogwarts Legacy players on Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PC should be getting new DLC next month.

For months, Hogwarts Legacy players have been looking to Avalanche Software with doting eyes and hopeful hearts, wishing and waiting for the announcement of an expansion or sequel.

I’m almost certain that the latter will be on the way eventually. After all, Hogwarts Legacy was 2023’s best-selling game and the most searched-for on Google It would be wild not to capitalise on that commercial success. Many wondered whether an announcement would come during the tail end of 2023, but my guess is that devs wanted to keep the focus exclusively on the long-delayed launch of the Nintendo Switch version of the game. 2024 is a clean slate though. Who knows what excitement this year holds? Well, I do happen to know that many Hogwarts Legacy players will be gaining access to new DLC next month.

That’s right. The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop will finally become available across all platforms.

Back when Hogwarts Legacy launched last February, PlayStation players were treated to the exclusive The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop DLC. The DLC quest sees you purchase an old rundown shop from the mysterious Cassandra Mason. The whole deal feels very off, and you quickly realise the shop is haunted by a poltergeist. A poltergeist who just so happens to have trapped you inside a creepy maze full of optical illusions.

It’s easily one of the spookiest missions in Hogwarts Legacy - and dare I say it, simply one of the best-designed in general. It did always feel strange to me upon release that the most enjoyable mission was made unavailable to so many players. That’s about to change though.

The exclusivity window between Warner Bros and PlayStation ends on 10 February 2024. It was originally suggested that at this point, it would become available to Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players. While we’re awaiting official confirmation from Avalanche, this has been the assumption all year and we cannot imagine why they wouldn’t want to share this DLC far and wide. So start your countdown clocks, Hogwarts Legacy fans.
