Hello, if you’re here, we imagine you’re gearing up for the release of Hogwarts Legacy – scheduled for release in February 2023 on Sony PlayStation5, PlayStation4, PlayStation4 Pro, PC and Xbox (Nintendo Switch launch date coming soon revealed). In the game, you play as a fifth-year student who arrived at Hogwarts a little late with a lot of catching up to do – not to mention a legacy to do.
Like any Hogwarts student, you will need a magic wand and a Hogwarts house to progress in your school life. But if you’re registered with us, you can actually bring your wizarding credentials into the game without having to sort yourself out or choose a wand again.
My Hogwarts house is sacred! How can I link accounts now?
Never scared. Here is a practical step by step.
Go to this link to start the process and log into your account with us. If you need to create a profile from scratch, you can of course do that too, right here.
Once you have completed the wand ceremony and the sorting ceremony, you will be asked to click the copy button, which will send you an 8-digit code.
Now go to WB games website and create an account or log in to your existing account.
You may be prompted to connect with us immediately – in which case, paste in your 8-digit code. And just like that, your accounts should be linked, no linking spell required!
And then what happens when I receive the game?
When you finally get Hogwarts Legacy, you’ll get an account link prompt once you load the game for the first time. Visit the website offered to you or scan the QR code that came with your phone to launch the WB Games account from a mobile browser instead. From there you will get another 6 digit code to submit. And there will be a nice exclusive wallpaper for you to download once you link everything.
Is there anything else I need to know?
If you encounter Nargles* (*difficulties!), go to the Portkey Games Support FAQ Page where you can go into more detail.
Alright, I’m on it. What about those in-game rewards then?
Glad you remember it! So, by logging in and linking your WB Games account, you’ll receive a Beaked Skull Mask to wear in-game. And by linking your Harry Potter Fan Club account, you’ll unlock a House Fan-atic School Robe, exclusive to our members ! Fancy.
And of course, your wand discovered in our wand ceremony and your Hogwarts house must also be set up, once you have reached the appropriate points in the game.
Excited yet? You can head over to our Hogwarts Legacy page now to learn more about the upcoming game, including trailers and information on everything we know so far. Long live the unwritten!
Hogwarts Legacy launches February 10 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The Nintendo Switch launch date will be revealed soon.
