Hogwarts Legacy PC Controls – Keyboard and Gamepad

Curious Students in Hogwarts Legacy

After a long wait and many delays, Hogwarts Legacy is finally nearly upon us. Some Harry Potter fans have been waiting a few years for this game, and others have been waiting their entire lives. Never before has a video game set in the wizarding world featured the kind of freedom of choice and length of exploration that seems to be possible in Hogwarts Legacy, and fans young and old couldn’t be more excited.


In Hogwarts Legacy, players will ride their broomsticks, cast dozens of spells, and take classes with fellow students during the day. With so much to know and learn, you might just find it difficult to properly keep track of everything, including what every button does and how it relates to the control of your character.


But, if you’re playing Hogwarts Legacy on PC, that won’t be an issue. Thanks to this handy Hogwarts Legacy PC controls guide we have for you, you can know the exact function of each key on your keyboard or button on your gamepad with just a glance. No need to be lost in confusion or doubt mid-lesson or combat, just reference this control guide and you’re good to go.


So whether you decide to take notes or just leave this page open (we recommend the latter, it’s much easier), we hope that this guide is useful to you in your journey to become a powerful witch or wizard!

    Mike has been playing video games since he was able to hold a controller, having been fascinated by Sonic 2 on his mom’s Sega Genesis. That fascination and passion for the art form has grown exponentially nearly 30 years later, and he doesn’t see that fading away anytime soon.
