Hogwarts Legacy is here—at least for those who ordered the Digital Deluxe edition with 72-hour early access. The long-awaited game is set in the Harry Potter universe, but its story takes place at the end of the 19th century, long before the events of the beloved book and movie series.
And if you are one of those gamers that just can’t wait to delve into the world and play, without having everything explained in cutscenes, you might be wondering if you can skip cutscenes in Hogwarts Legacy. This article brings you all the answers you need.
