How much will you have to spend on Hogwarts Legacy to fully enjoy the gameplay?
Most players are already accustomed to the fact that in games many things are hidden behind a wall of microtransactions and some items are impossible to get without spending real money. This usually applies to multiplayer games and free-to-play productions, but there was no shortage of cases where even games dedicated to a single player required reaching for the wallet when you wanted to get specific things.
What exactly will this look like in Hogwarts Legacy? The game can be purchased in the regular version or one of two special editions – the deluxe or collector’s edition. Fans may wonder what else will be hidden behind the so-called paywall.
All about microtransactions in Hogwarts Legacy
At the outset, it must be said that there will be no microtransactions in the game. The developers have confirmed that there will be no content hidden behind a paywall in the official FAQ. In addition, the community manager – Chandler Wood – confirmed this information.
We have been receiving this question and want to dispel any doubts. There will be no microtransactions in the game.
This is, of course, good news for anyone interested in a game built on the Harry Potter universe. Despite the fact that the basic version of the game costs quite a lot, it is good to know that this is a one-time expense, and further playing will not require money from the player.
It should be mentioned that although the game will not have microtransactions, both the deluxe and collector’s editions have items that cannot be unlocked other than by buying the more expensive version of the game.
A user with the nickname Fearless-Vodka has created a table to take a closer look at what is available for purchasing each edition.
As you can see, the additional content is quite a lot. Players who want to compete in the dark arts battle arena or get a mount will have to get one of the two more expensive versions of the game. However, the price difference is not that big, because according to the price list of the Epic Games store, you will have to pay only $ 10 extra for the digital deluxe version, which provides virtually all the add-ons.
It is also uncertain whether Hogwarts Legacy will have DLC that will expand the story or add new content, but the game’s developers assure that microtransactions will never be included in their production.
