Can you change house in Hogwarts Legacy?

When you start your journey in Hogwarts Legacy, you're going to go through the Wand and Sorting ceremonies. You'll be asked to pick your house in this rather than the Sorting Hat give you a house. Once you've picked that house, you're locked into that house for the game.

The same is true if you link your Harry Potter Fan Club account, pulling in your house and wand among other things for a more personal feeling to the entire gameplay experience.

In order to fully change which house you belong to, you're going to need to make a brand new save file and choose a different house. There's no sidequest that'll let you change houses, so you're stuck with your choice after the Sorting Ceremony until you decide to make a new character.

If you're hoping to complete any House-specific quests or achievements, you'll need to play through the game more than once. And knowing how long Hogwarts Legacy is now, that might be quite the challenge.
