How to Fix Early Access Not Working in Hogwarts Legacy

Anybody got a spell to fix this?

Hogwarts Legacy early access officially has begun, letting fans who purchased the Deluxe Edition of the game hop in a bit earlier than the upcoming Friday release date. But what happens when you run into the issue of it not working as it should? Here is everything you need to know about how to fix Hogwarts Legacy early access not working.

Hogwarts Legacy Early Access Not Work Error

Like with many other games, there are a number of issues that could be preventing you from logging into Hogwarts Legacy early access. First, you’ll want to check your Internet Access to ensure you’ve got a stable connection, as this can mess with the downloading process for your game if you’re having connection issues.

If your internet is doing alright, next you should be sure to verify game files, especially on PC. By going into the personal files, you can locate any possible corrupted ones that might be causing your issues. If all else fails, you might want to consider restarting or reinstalling your device or game.

How to Restart Steam Hogwarts Legacy

If you’re specifically playing Hogwarts Legacy on Steam, then the best bet is to simply restart the platform. This can either be done by opening the task manager (ctrl/alt/delete) and clicking on the Steam Client or by shutting the computer off completely.

If that doesn’t work, you can either uninstall Hogwarts Legacy by right-clicking or uninstalling Steam entirely via your program files. With either, simply reinstall them to see if that hard reset helped alleviate your issues. If not, be sure to contact the support team.

Steam Unpacking Slow Error Hogwarts Legacy

On top of this, you might also see something that says “Steam Unpacking Slow” while trying to download Hogwarts Legacy. As the error suggests, this usually means that Steam is having trouble downloading the game.

This can either be because you don’t have enough space, you’ve got computer errors, or something else. Obviously, the first thing you want to do is make sure you’ve got enough space for the game wherever you’ve installed it. If you don’t, go and delete programs to free it up.

Alongside this, you’ll want to set Steam’s Priority to High in your Task Manager, so that your computer knows to prioritize it over other programs. If you’re still having issues, you can also go into the game files: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\depotcache. Deleting this may solve it.

It might also be worth checking your SSD and drivers to make sure they are up to date and upgraded. If not, this could be why Steam is having such a hard time.
