Hogwarts Legacy Harry Potter open world RPG artwork and logo

After going through a bit of a delay, the open world Harry Potter RPG Hogwarts Legacy will be launching onto PC, PlayStation and Xbox this February 10th. So if you're curious what kind of rig you'll need in order to run it, and especially to run it well, you'll be happy to hear that the Hogwarts Legacy team has now detailed the PC system requirements and their expected performance.

Before we get into the actual details, the most important thing to mention is that even older GPUs like the Nvidia GeForce 1080 TI will be able to play Hogwarts Legacy on high settings. As such, don't feel pressured to purchase the currently absurdly overpriced GPUs as your old one will most likely do just fine. With that said, here are the PC specs:
