According to the Hogwarts Legacy trailer, The Dark Arts pack is for the digital deluxe edition pre-orders, and will include a number of exciting add-ons for players to use in-game. Below is a list of everything included in the pack.

  • Thestral Mount
  • Dark Arts Cosmetic Set
  • Dark Arts Battle Arena
  • Onyx Hippogriff Mount
  • Dark Arts Garrison Hat
  • 72 Hours Early Access

The most eye-grabbing inclusion in the pre-order list is the 72-hour early access window. While the rest of the benefits are mostly for cosmetic purposes, the chance to get and play the game early is a surprising extra that many fans would feel is worth the investment of a deluxe edition.

Pre-orders for Hogwarts Legacy will begin on August 15, 2022 at 8 AM PT, giving those interested in the game plenty of time to snag a copy early before the release date next year.
