What are Hogwarts Legacy upgrades?

What do I need for Hogwarts Legacy upgrades?

Upgrades aren’t free, and like most RPGs, you need to gather some resources from out in the world in order to improve your gear. For now, we don’t have many details on what you need for different upgrades, but we’ll provide comprehensive details as soon as we do.

Hogwarts Legacy has drawn considerable criticism during its development, largely due to the fact that the creator of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years.

While Avalanche has confirmed that J.K. Rowling is not “directly involved” in the development of Hogwarts Legacy, it is working with “her team” and Portkey Games, a Warner Bros. label dedicated to launching new experiences inspired by J.K. Rowling’s original stories. It is currently unclear whether she will earn any royalties from the game’s sale, but it is likely given it is based on her original body of work.
