Before looking at specific areas in the Hogwarts Legacy map, it'd be good to get an idea of the map's overall size. Unfortunately, there have been no official comments on the size of the map exactly. The only time developers commented on the map was during the official behind the scenes YouTube video.

During this six-minute video, the game director Alan Tew told us that developers understand that people expect to see a significant open world map. He said, “we knew it wasn’t going to be enough to just stare out of the windows of Hogwarts and wonder what it’s like out there.”

Moreover, during the video, developers also showed us a lot of the beautiful areas outside Hogwarts. Therefore, even though there are no officially confirmed map measurements, it is clear that developers did their best to create an expansive and impressive open world map.

Also, since Hogwarts Legacy is set in the late 1800s, some areas in the game might differ from the original Harry Potter books and film locations. How significant these differences will be will be unclear until we get our hands on the game.

One of the first officially confirmed areas is Forbidden Forest. It seems to be the most significant area in the game and it will include various small details from the Harry Potter books.

The second confirmed location is the Scottish Highlands. It is likely to be one of the most beautiful area in the game, but you'll need to use a broomstick to access it.
