Hogwarts Legacy is truly bringing the magic of the books and films into the video game realm and allowing you to fully immerse yourself in it. One way in which Portkey Games is doing this is through the use of mounts, creatures you’re able to use as allies and traverse the wizarding world.
One such mount is the Onyx Hippogriff in Hogwarts Legacy and many budding witches and wizards are looking to know how to get one for themselves. Below, we’ll run you through exactly how to get a Hogwarts Legacy Onyx Hippogriff so you too can fly around on this legendary beast.
Onyx Hippogriff Hogwarts Legacy: How to get
If you are after the Onyx Hippogriff, unfortunately, there’s no actual way to get it in the game. You will be able to acquire other Hippogriffs as faithful companions but the Onyx variety that you’re seeking is sadly behind a purchase bonus.
Yes, that’s right, if you want the Hogwarts Legacy Onyx Hippogriff you’re going to have to cough up the cash before launch. More specifically, you simply have to pre-order any edition of the game; the Standard, Deluxe or Collector’s Edition to gain access to this creature.
This means that if you buy any of these Editions post-launch, you won’t receive the Onyx Hippogriff which is pretty frustrating considering that you’re still paying for the same experience. You will, however, still gain access to the other benefits such as the Dark Arts Pack if you opt for the Deluxe or higher.
To actually get the Onyx Hippogriff in-game, you’ll need to unlock flying mounts and once this has been done, you’ll have access to your pre-order exclusive.
And that’s all there is to it, if you were too late on those Hogwarts Legacy pre-orders we’re sad to say that you’ve missed the boat on this exclusive mount!
