Being an open-world RPG filled with side characters, players have surely wondered if there are Hogwarts Legacy romance options in the game to date one of their peers. As the game progresses, players meet different characters and also become friends with many of them. These companions then help players throughout Hogwarts Legacy and help them learn different skills.
As players complete quests for these companion characters, they must have noticed a challenge being completed regularly which mentions Relationship Quests. Surely the word relationship might mean that Hogwarts Legacy has romance options right?
Does Hogwarts Legacy have romance?
Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy doesn’t have any romance options in the game with any house companion or other character. This can be frustrating for players looking for a romantic relationship as the relationship remains strictly friendly even after spending a long time with a character.
According to the developers, this decision is made because the main character is just 15 as they join the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the game doesn’t want to promote young relationships. Thus, for all those players looking to juggle multiple relationships, Hogwarts Legacy is not the place.
However, no romance doesn’t mean you won’t have any companions. As you progress in the game, players will have an relationship line quests with the companions they have met to further strengthen their friendship and unlock rewards.
Hogwarts Legacy relationship lines quests
Although the game has no romance, players will still have companions to help them throughout. Some of these characters stay with players more than others. Thus Hogwarts Legacy has assigned these characters a relationship line.
Players, to unlock the relationship line of these characters, need to befriend them. As players become friends with them and unlock their relationship lines, the successful completion of these lines will reward players with a lot of XP, different valuable items, and some fantastic spells which players can use in solving different puzzles in the game.
Let’s discuss the three main companions players will meet in Hogwarts Legacy as well as their relationship line quests.
