Hogwarts Legacy offers a large world to explore, which also allows the developers to include plenty of space for references and tributes to other games. They especially like hardcore RPGs like Elden Ring and Dark Souls from From Software – as these Easter Eggs demonstrate.
Hogwarts Legacy is an absolute phenomenon in the gaming community, not only delighting fans of the Harry Potter books but also gamers in general. Cool Easter Eggs from Hogwarts Legacy show that the two worlds can overlap wonderfully. They will bring a smile to the faces of fans of Elden Ring and Dark Souls. We only say: sword in the ground and horizontal tombstones!
The “typical” Easter Egg for Dark Souls
Into Hogwarts Legacy (buy now €59.99 ) there is an allusion to Dark Souls that we already know from many games like WoW, Overwatch, Elex, Borderlands, Just Cause or Assassin’s Creed: the campfire with a sword. The “Bonfires” have now become the trademark of Dark Souls, so it’s not surprising that a developer has captured his love for the Souls series in Hogwarts Legacy:
Go to the north of the world map like in the video, where you will find a campfire with a sword. There is also some loot to be gained.
Easter Egg for Elden Ring connoisseurs
But not only the obvious Easter Egg for Dark Souls can be found in the game. Anyone who has played Elden Ring will make yet another discovery that is not so anchored in general gaming knowledge: Vertical tombstones!
These tombstones can be found in Elden Ring and allow our hero to use them as a kind of staircase. In Hogwarts Legacy they are simply a curious decoration of a rock face in the landscape. Have you spotted any other cool Easter Eggs in Hogwarts Legacy? Tell us in the comments!
