Can I run it?

Hogwarts Legacy isn’t too demanding when it comes to PC requirements. So, most modern laptops and PCs should be able to run the game without an error. What follows will be a brief recap of the system requirements. 

If your PC has at least an Intel Core i5, it should do just fine. However, if you want to run the game without the risk of performance issues, we recommend an Intel Core i7. Additionally, while anything equivalent to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 will do the job with this game, you’ll need something in line with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 to run the game at its full potential. This means all the settings are cranked up to the max. 

Even though the minimum requirement is 6GB of RAM, rather try and aim for 8GB, it’ll serve you better. You’ll need 30GB of free memory to store this game. 

Hogwarts Legacy is expected to launch on February 10th 2023, and the game will also be hitting PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. So, you’ll have loads of options in terms of how to enjoy the game. If you prefer not to think about system requirements, console is the best way to go. Not only are consoles cheaper than proper gaming rigs, they, more often than not, provide a smoother gaming experience due to standardized hardware and software designed to run all current games. 

We’ll keep you updated, and you can most probably look forward to a Hogwarts Legacy review from us at some point.
