So, if you’re wondering whether Salazar Slytherin’s iconic underground dungeon is present in Hogwarts Legacy and whether you can open it, then our hub has everything you need to know. 


Is the Chamber of Secrets in Hogwarts Legacy?

No, the Chamber of Secrets is not in Hogwarts Legacy. However, the entrance that leads to the dungeon can be visited and interacted with. While it’s disappointing that the Chamber itself can not be opened by the player, it’s understandable given they can’t speak or learn Parseltongue – an ability that enables gifted Witches and Wizards to speak to serpents.

Once you’ve followed the above instructions, you’ll see the Field Guide Page for Slytherin’s Sink, which gives a little reference to the mystery behind the Chamber of Secrets. 

Is the Basilisk in Hogwarts Legacy?

As the Chamber of Secrets is not available in Hogwarts Legacy, the Basilisk also doesn’t appear in the game as an enemy. Fans originally thought a glitch involving the Black Lake’s giant squid was actually an eerie Easter Egg surrounding the mighty Basilisk, but it sadly wasn’t the case.

Whether the developers will add the Basilisk and the Chamber of Secrets in any future Hogwarts Legacy DLC remains to be seen, but for now, that’s everything we know.
