The Wizarding World is upon Nintendo Switch owners of the world (all 132.46 million of them!), who finally have a chance to experience it for themselves and work their way through the Hogwarts Legacy chapters - of which we have a full list with all main missions that progress the story.


Certain parts of the open world are locked away by particular spells and skills, requiring you to undertake specific quests before these parts of Hogwarts and beyond open up - so be sure to pay attention in class!

A lot of these quests can be missed, given how many come flying your way, so be sure to check what homework and missions you've neglected in the Quests Tab.

Once you start completing these quests, things will fall into place, with the puzzles and challenges that halted you in your tracks before now making sense - as these always pertain to some new skill or spell you've learned.

But read on and we'll go over the Hogwarts Legacy chapter list in the same order — and broken up into the same sections — as they appear in the game, and you'll be able to see how much farther there is to go.

But do keep in mind that some of the mission names include light spoilers.
