When you think about venturing around the Hogwarts Legacy map, one immediate thought is flying around on a broomstick. Another one, though, is using the dark, mysterious Onyx Hippogriff as a ground and aerial mount. This mount mainly gained some attention during the most recent gameplay showcase, where we saw footage showing its movement capabilities. The best part? You can get the Hippogriff too! If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover how to get the Onyx Hippogriff mount in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to Get the Onyx Hippogriff Mount in Hogwarts Legacy
The Onyx Hippogriff mount is a pre-order exclusive that you can get after buying the Deluxe or Collector’s Edition of Hogwarts Legacy. It is one of two mounts you can get through this method, with the other being the Thestral Mount as part of the Dark Arts pack. Whether you get Deluxe or Collector’s Edition is entirely up to personal preference, but either way, it requires you to buy the game before its initial launch.
While it’s important to note that the Onyx Hippogriff mount is currently only available as a pre-order bonus, that doesn’t mean it will stay that way. As of now, it isn’t available for purchase separately, but this may change after the game launches. However, no current information reveals that this is the case, making pre-ordering the safest bet. This is unlike the Thestral Mount, which is confirmed to be available alongside the Dark Arts Pack as an addition you can purchase separately after the game’s release.
How to Claim the Onyx Hippogriff Mount
Once you load up Hogwarts Legacy for the first time, you’ll immediately see reward screens appear, allowing you to claim your preorder bonuses. This’ll include the Onyx Hippogriff, which you can access through your Gear menu after gaining access to flying mounts.
After progressing far enough into the story to unlock mounts, you’ll find the Hippogriff by heading into your Field Guide, selecting Gear and opening your list of mounts.
Hogwarts Legacy will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website. If you’re interested in learning more about the game, check out How House Sorting Works and Which Platforms Hogwarts Legacy Will Be On.
