There are over 100 side quests in Hogwarts Legacy, with the total number of missions coming to around 150.

This equates to around two-thirds of the total amount of quests available in Hogwarts Legacy, with the remaining third being main story missions.

This is according to the German YouTube channel PC Games. In its preview of the game, it revealed how many side quests players can expect.

Of course, while checking every quest off your list may seem like a good idea, you may want to see how long Hogwarts Legacy takes to beat before you commit to completing them all.

We also got to see some of these side quests in action in the latest Hogwarts Legacy gameplay reveal, where critics finally voiced their opinions on the game.

You can approach the optional content of Hogwarts Legacy in a nonlinear fashion. This means that side quests can be completed in any order and aren’t gated behind your progress with the main story.

However, while you can opt to complete them in any order, many of the side quests are directly connected to the main story and will affect it.

You can check out the PC Games preview for yourself below. Be sure to switch on the auto-translated subtitles if you don’t speak German.

Do Side Quests Affect The Main Story in Hogwarts Legacy?

Yes, some side quests will affect aspects of Hogwarts Legacy’s main story, such as how characters behave around you. This is because side quests occasionally have choices for the player to make.

While these choices won’t drastically alter what happens, they will make small changes to make the experience feel more unique to you.

This information comes directly from Hogwarts Legacy’s narrative director and advanced game writer, Moira Squier, in an interview with GamesRadar+.

Of course, if you can’t wait to see how side quests affect the main story, you can always play Hogwarts Legacy early with a simple step.
