Hogwarts Legacy System Requirements Revealed for PC


Hogwarts Legacy is an upcoming open-world action RPG from Avalanche Studios and Warner Bros Interactive. The title is based on the extremely popular fantasy series Harry Potter, set in the 1800s at Hogwarts. Despite a delay, we finally have the release date for the upcoming release and more details as it is now available for pre-purchase. Now, the Hogwarts Legacy System Requirements have been revealed as well.

Hogwarts Legacy System Requirements

To play the game on PC, you need the following specifications.

Hogwarts Legacy Minimum Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 OR AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Memory: 8 GB RAM

  • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-8400 OR AMD Ryzen 5 3600
  • Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 1080 Ti or AMD RX 5700 XT
  • DirectX: Version 12
  • Storage: 85 GB available space
  • Additional Notes: SSD, 1080p/60 fps, High Quality Settings, Upscale Quality Setting

These are pretty detailed requirements and exactly how we like to see them. If you’re looking to play at Higher Settings, with Upscaling set at “Quality”, then you need something like a GTX 1080 Ti paired with a Ryzen 5 3600. Given how they’ve mentioned upscaling in the requirements, it’s safe to say this is a very demanding title, and even at 1080p, you’ll need a level of upscaling if you have this GPU.

On the lower side, though, with Upscale set to “Performance,” you’ll need something like a GTX 1070. This is one of the indicators that the title probably won’t perform well on lower-end or budget systems. The GTX 1070 is a bit old now, but it’s still a capable 1080p GPU.

You also need 85 GB of free space to install the title and 16 GB of RAM. Even at a minimum, an SSD is preferred while a requirement if you’re looking to push the settings.
