How to Sleep in Hogwarts Legacy and Skip Time

Hogwarts Legacy is a massive open-world RPG which offers countless locations to explore and mysteries to solve. In the true fashion of an immersive single-player RPG, it also features a day-and-night cycle, allowing players to immerse themselves into the world on another level. Some things will only be available at night, while others are accessible during the day. And it’s not only about accessibility, as the day/night cycle also affects the behaviour of various beast and the progress in many quests. Namely, many characters will ask you to meet them at some location at a specific time of the day. And in these cases, it can be really tedious to wait for the time to pass until the required part of the day. Thankfully, there is a sleeping mechanic! Well, sort of. So, how to sleep in Hogwarts Legacy?

Unfortunately, at the moment, you are not able to sleep on your bed in the common rooms. However, you can use the Hogwarts Legacy “wait” mechanic to skip time and switch between day and night! This very useful feature allows you to switch between day and night in Hogwarts Legacy easily and instantly. To do this, you have to open your map, and in the lower right corner, you’ll see the “Wait” option. Press “F” on the PC or R3 on the PS5, and the game will skip to night/day.

Nikola's been playing video games since his father bought him the NES and the Sega Mega Drive in the early '90s. Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
