According to the discovery of Reddit users, the PC version of Hogwarts Legacy also includes the exclusive mission for PS5 and PS4 among the game files.
As reported by a user on Reddit, the PC version of Hogwarts Legacy hides the exclusive content for PS5 and PS4 among the game files , and if desired, it is even possible to unlock them now by fiddling with the save files.
For the uninitiated, the PS5 and PS4 versions of Hogwarts Legacy include the exclusive “Hogsmeade Haunted Shop” quest . In this mission players take part in “an eerie and mysterious adventure” involving Madam Mason, a Hogsmeade shopkeeper, and the exploration of a dungeon full of dangers. By completing it, players gain access to an exclusive shop in Hogsmeade, where they can sell their items and equipment at better prices than other shops in the game.
This content will remain exclusive on PS5 and PS4 for a year after the publication of Hogwarts Legacy, but as rededor enaske discovered, it is actually already included in the game files of the PC version (and at this point we also assume that of the Xbox Series X|S). Not only that, if you are practical enough you can even unlock it.
This requires using a hex editor to edit your saves and unlock this content before it’s officially available in a year. esnake did not explain the procedure in detail, but indicated on Reddit at this address the parameters to be modified in case a user wanted to try.
Let’s get our hands on: it is a procedure that could violate the EULA , as well as corrupt the save files, especially if you are not familiar with it. Also, now that it’s been discovered, we’re guessing it’s only a matter of time before Avalanche Software fixes this exploit with a patch.
Meanwhile Hogwarts Legacy is recording exceptional numbers on Steam, with over 450,000 concurrent users despite the fact that the game is currently only available in Early Access for those who purchased the Deluxe Edition.
