The newest game from the Harry Potter series, Hogwarts Legacy, is set in the 1800s in J.K. Rowling’s beloved wizarding realm. With the release of the single-player game Hogwarts Legacy, players will get to see the world of Hogwarts and Harry Potter from a whole different angle. This game is appealing to all Harry Potter enthusiasts since it features portions of the Hogwarts castle that have never been seen before and displays cutting-edge visuals.

Although there is a lot of attention to detail that has been put into this game, such as the day and night cycle of Hogwarts Legacy, some things did not make it into the game. One of these omissions is the ability to sit down in most furniture present in the game. Unfortunately, this feature was simply not deemed necessary and thus was not added into the game. In this article, we will explain how this change affects players, and explore a few possibilities as to why it was not added.

No Rest for the Wizard: You Can’t Sit in Furniture in Hogwarts Legacy

The main reason that players cannot interact as much with the general environment of Hogwarts Legacy is the aim of the game. Since the videogame was not intended to be a “real-life” simulator, some features were not deemed necessary. Working in stressful conditions can be hard for developers, so any unneeded parts of the game often get cut. The map of the game itself is enormous, and there are numerous other things for players to do. Therefore, it is likely that most people wouldn’t even be using this option in the first place, if it existed.

Furthermore, the idea of sitting down when there is so much to do and explore seems counterintuitive. Instead of lounging in common rooms, there are plenty of secret rooms just waiting for players to discover them. Focusing on the many positive things coming with Hogwarts Legacy is more important than worrying about one omission. And who knows, perhaps there will be an addition in the future that lets players park their characters’ backsides on a comfy seat.
