WB Games has announced that Hogwarts Legacy Steam Deck compatibility would be available at the launch. Although, it's possible that the open-world RPG's visuals and performances will clash with PS1 Hagrid elements.
On paper, Hogwarts Legacy system requirements appear to be quite excessive, and even the eventual Steam Deck 2 will likely not meet recommended specifications. Yet, here we are, talking about how the open-world game will be 'Great on Deck' on day one.
WB Games has confirmed that Hogwarts Legacy is compatible with Steam Deck. In theory, you should be able to walk around the magical school grounds without a hitch, but it's worth mentioning that Verification isn't a complete performance failure.
If you want to get higher frame rates, then Hogwarts Legacy on Steam Deck might be ideal. Although Avalanche Games does not include the portable in its PC specs list, cranking up settings requires a decent GPU. Sure, the Deck's AMD APU can handle many new games, especially if you play with its 720p display, but you won't necessarily be able to boost fps.
Playing Hogwarts Legacy on Deck will likely come with limitations, whether that means reduced frame rates or shady graphics. Some gamers may find that reduced visuals at 720p may be difficult to comprehend, and using the finest Steam Deck dock and a monitor might transform the game into a PlayStation remake.
JK Rowling, the creator of the Harry Potter series, has made a number of transphobic remarks on social media in recent years. While the details of the licence aren't publicly known, WB Games claims that "J.K. Rowling is not directly involved in the creation of the game", it is likely that she will earn royalties from its sales as the creator and owner of the Harry Potter IP.
