While they haven't been confirmed officially, the developers of Hogwarts Legacy have hinted at the inclusion of pets in trailers.


If you keep your eyes peeled, you'll spot owls and cats, so hopefully you'll be able to get them as pets in the game.

What pets are likely to appear in Hogwarts Legacy?

Hogwarts Legacy is based on the original world of Harry Potter. Characters, spells, and other stuff are taken directly from original books. So, there is a high chance that pets in Hogwarts Legacy will be taken from books as well.

The original world contains just six domesticated pets: owls, cats, toads, rats, spiders, and Bats. Therefore, we'd expect those six to also appear in Hogwarts Legacy, with more potentially being added by Portkey Games.

Since they've not been officially confirmed, we don't know for sure how they'll work or how you get them. However, we can speculate a little.

While you could tame animals in the open world, you may also be able to get pets from shops or as upgrades as you progress. They may even be rewards for completing quests.


Pet progression could also be a feature in the game. For example, pets could give you particular boosts, with you unlocking more as you progress. Also, it would be cool to have multiple pets in Hogwarts Legacy that you can switch between when you want.

That’s it for what we know so far about pets in Hogwarts Legacy. We'd expect for you to be able to have your own Hedwig in the game, but we'll update you once that is confirmed. While you are here, make sure you check our guide on how to get the Elder Wand in Hogwarts Legacy.
