Hogwarts Legacy PlayStation-exclusive content

Hogwarts Legacy’s PlayStation-exclusive content includes:

  • Hogwarts Legacy Haunted Hogsmeade shop quest.
  • An additional dungeon
  • The Shopkeepers Cosmetic Set
  • In-game Hogsmeade Shop
  • Felix Felicis Potion Recipe

While you’ll have to wait until the Winter season in order to complete this quest, you’ll get access to the Felix Felicis potion straight away. The Felix Felicis potion will reveal chests on the map for one in-game day, which lasts for 48 minutes.

The quest itself is called “Minding Your Own Business,” and as the name implies, you’re given the chance to run your own business in Hogsmeade. You’ll speak to Cassandra Mason, who will offer you the business at an exceptionally low price, only 1,500 gold.

If you don’t have that kind of gold yet, you can easily acquire it by taking down some bandit camps, looting the chests, and selling the items. Legendary items can fetch as much as 200 coins per item.

You’ll have access to the quest after you complete the third keeper trial, so it’s a fairly late-game quest, although we’re not sure why it’s kept to so late in the game, as it’s not particularly difficult.

Once you’ve reached the shop, you’ll soon realize that things aren’t quite what they seem, as the basement of the shop is haunted by a destructive ghost named Fastidio.

You’ll have to explore the basement of the shop, running into haunted creatures that lurk within.

The quest lasts around 50 minutes from start to finish, with the main dungeon itself being a fairly lengthy part of the game.

For completing the quest you’re given the shop itself, which unfortunately isn’t as exciting as it may seem.

You’re not going to be collecting wares and selling them in the shop, instead, the shop becomes just another place where you can take excess items that you carry in your inventory.

The shop will remain on your map for the rest of the game, however, it’s unclear if the shop gains more inventory the longer you play. If you choose not to give the house-elf clothes, you can go back and do this at a later date.
