Hogwarts Legacy is just a few weeks away from launch and fans are already deciding which house they will join in this anticipated RPG that lets you play out your fantasies as a new student enrolling in the school. It’s a tough initial decision to make before setting off on an adventure, but Warner Bros. Games has now confirmed that we’ll have four saves that essentially lets us create one character per house.
The four houses that players will be able to choose from in Hogwarts Legacy are Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. Choosing a house not only dictates the colour of your robe, but also gives you access to the four unique common rooms of the houses (which you can see for yourself here). If you’re indecisive like me and want to experience everything that the game offers, you can do so with four different characters.
Responding to a fan on Twitter, Warner Bros. Games confirmed that players will get four separate character save slots in Hogwarts Legacy. Each character slot will have two types of save functionality: five auto save slots and ten manual player save slots. This means that players can create up to four different characters and assign them to each house, ensuring you have four unique playthroughs in the game.
This is also good news if you have friends or family that also want to play Hogwarts Legacy. Each person will have their own character and journey on one device.
Unfortunately, Warner Bros. Games also confirmed that the game won’t support cross-save. You can’t carry your save slot from one platform like PS5 to another like PC. Saves will basically be tied to the one specific platform.
On the plus side, having the option to create four different characters gives players a lot more agency, but also lets others play on one device so that nobody has to purchase the game all over again. That shouldn’t be too much of a problem for Hogwarts Legacy, though, as early pre-orders are already setting it up as one of the biggest games of the year.
Hogwarts Legacy launches on 10 February 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. PS4 and Xbox One versions will release on 4 April 2023, followed by a Nintendo Switch version on 25 July 2023.
