Hogwarts Legacy PC Deluxe Edition Can't Play 72h Early Access Explained

Hogwarts Legacy is finally out. Well, in Early Access, that is. Players that have pre-purchased the Deluxe Edition of the game will have (among other exclusive goodies) three days of Early Access ahead of the official release date. However, it seems that PC players that have bought the Deluxe Edition can’t play the game, and get the error – available on February 10th. Is this because of a bug? Some oversight? We’re going to answer why this is the case in our Hogwarts Legacy PC Deluxe Edition Can’t Play 72 hours early access Explained guide.

Hogwarts Legacy PC Deluxe Edition Can’t Play Early Access Explained – Available on February 10th

Depending on where they live, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S players are already able to play Hogwarts Legacy in Early Access. But that doesn’t seem to be the case for PC players as well. Well, the reason why this is happening is because the PC version of the Deluxe Edition has a different release date and time than the PS5 and Xbox versions of the game. But don’t worry, as you’ll be able to play the game on the PC very soon. In fact, the release date and time for the PC is Tuesday, February 7th, 2023, at 7 PM CET / 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT.

This unfortunate mix up has probably been the result of miscommunication. Since the console version of the game had a global launch at the same time (midnight at your local time), it was natural to assume that this would also be the case for the PC version as well. There isn’t anything to do except to wait until the PC Deluxe Edition unlocks on the 7th. In the meantime, we recommend that you read through our Hogwarts Legacy archives if you want to familiarize yourself with the game ahead of time.
