Multiplayer Is Headed To ‘Hogwarts Legacy’ But There’s A Catch

Put up up to date 2/16/2023. See updates under.

Hogwarts Legacy is an excellent new roleplaying recreation set within the Harry Potter universe that allows you to discover the wizarding faculty, Hogwarts, and the encircling villages and grounds. The Forbidden Forest, Hogsmeade and far more are all obtainable to journey in.

However you’ll largely do all that adventuring alone. As my colleague Paul Tassi identified just lately, it could have been good to at the very least have some sort of celebration mechanic much like Mass Impact or Dragon Age that allowed you to deliver companions with you on quests.

It additionally could be enjoyable to play the sport with actual mates, wandering the halls of Hogwarts, mixing up potions and taking down darkish sorcerers with on-line companions. Properly, similar to magic, this can be a actuality quickly sufficient—although not formally.

Yesterday, modder Yamashi (who helped create the marvelous Skyrim Collectively mod that lets you go questing in Skyrim with on-line mates) introduced a brand new Hogwarts Legacy mod referred to as HogWarp on their Patreon. The mod is in very early phases and is just obtainable for gamers on PC. It appears fairly spectacular already.

Right here’s some early footage of the mod in motion:

The present HogWarp construct is just obtainable to Yamashi’s Patreon subscribers on the Excessive Otter ($21/month) and King Otter ($51.50/month) tiers. When it’s finalized, it will likely be obtainable to everybody freed from cost. When that truly occurs is anybody’s guess. As with all formidable modding undertaking (like many full-fledged recreation design initiatives) there’s no assure it’s going to ever be accomplished. Then once more, it’s already underway inside days of the sport’s launch. Not too shabby!


A multiplayer mod isn’t the one method PC gamers of Hogwarts Legacy can boost the sport—or make it ridiculously wacky. Listed below are a number of different enjoyable mods that you may (and may) take for a spin.


It is a fairly easy mod that makes fixing these math-based door puzzles a bit simpler by including a quantity to every of the symbols across the door puzzle. Actually, this one makes probably the most sense when you’ve already overwhelmed the sport and are enjoying it once more and simply don’t wish to cope with fixing the puzzles a second time.


This mod is a lot extra useful than the earlier one. It really helps your recreation carry out higher on PC—the place Hogwarts Legacy is infamous for framerate drops, hitching and stuttering and numerous different infuriating issues. For those who’re having points together with your recreation—and different fixes aren’t serving to—give this mod a obtain.

Facial Hair

Once I was in highschool, I may develop a quite flimsy beard. My good good friend, nevertheless, was already a shaggy beast by his junior yr. Now you will be the shaggy beast of Hogwarts with this beautiful easy facial hair mod that principally provides beards to your facewear gear.

Mouse Controls For Broom

Broom controls are horrible in Hogwarts Legacy, particularly with mouse and keyboard. However when you’d like to have the ability to simply level your broom within the route you’d prefer to go together with your mouse, that is the mod for you. What a novel idea!

Shrek Broom

You’ll be able to, nicely, flip your broom into Shrek and fly round on the inexperienced ogre’s again. (Or you possibly can change it into Thomas the Tank Engine).

Smaller UI

The UI in Hogwarts Legacy is ideal on a TV enjoying from a online game console. It’s quite a bit larger and extra intrusive on PC once you’re a foot or two away out of your display. This mod does precisely what it says (and like a few of these, does what should be within the recreation already) and shrinks your UI.

Expertise Reset Potion Recipe

In Hogwarts Legacy one side of leveling up is spending Expertise Factors on numerous magical talents. You solely get so many and there’s no solution to respec your character—except you utilize this useful mod.

Wizard’s hat-tip to Insider Gaming.

As at all times, I’d find it irresistible when you’d comply with me right here on this weblog and subscribe to my YouTube channel and my Substack so you possibly can keep up-to-date on all my TV, film and online game opinions and protection. Thanks!
