Hogwarts Legacy will likely take players quite some time to fully complete. As such, here’s how to accurately check how many hours you’ve played.

Hogwarts Legacy’s massive open world is full of puzzles to solve, side quests to complete, and locations to visit.

As such, it should come as no surprise that the game will likely take players around 30 hours to finish the main story and around 70 hours to complete everything the game has to offer.

The ‘Save Game’ tab will display the date, current mission, location, and hour count of the file.

While some may be disappointed to hear that they won’t be able to see an extremely accurate playtime counter, there is a bit of a silver lining. The counter does pause whenever the actual game is paused, meaning leaving the game idle on the pause menu won’t disrupt the hour count.
