Hogwarts Legacy will be an awesome experience, not only for Potterheads. We originally thought that Hogwarts Legacy will 100% not have multiplayer, but now something has changed... enough to make us believe that multiplayer is coming? No. But it's a start.
To be fair, it's in the name of the game RPG (role-playing video game) that you've chosen a single-player game and want to have a great time going on an adventure there. However, many fans of the Harry Potter series hoped that they can play together with their friends and discover the world of Hogwarts Legacy together. Sadly, this probably won't be possible in the new game that we're eager to await... or will it?
Will Harry Potter Legacy Have Multiplayer, Online Options or Co-op Gaming?
No, Harry Potter Legacy won't have online features. That includes the possibility to play with or against your friends. The developers were asked that quite often in the last couple of weeks, so they updated their ‘frequently asked questions’ on their page, and we have to face the truth:
Does Hogwarts Legacy have online or co-op gameplay?”
Sadly, it’s a rather definitive ‘no’ - “Hogwarts Legacy is a single player experience and does not have online or co-op gameplay.
Like we already mentioned it's not a big surprise but still, we're kinda disappointed. It would have been so much fun to get together and play a Quidditch game, fight each other with different spells or simply wander around in Hogwarts and discover it's secret together.
[Update, August 31, 2022]
You've abandoned all hope for a Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer? Understandable, but maybe this will cheer you up. This picture has been posted on the Wizarding World Instagram account:
Big announcement incoming could mean anything, but the emojis, especially the one at the bottom of the two people... it has to mean something, right? Listen, we'd be happy with just dueling against a friend, guys. If you even made that possible, we'd be majorly excited.
The announcement will happen tomorrow, so we will update this article then. (UPDATE: It didn't happen. Sadge)
Dark Magic In Hogwarts Legacy
A different aspect of the game that fans are looking for is the magic you will be able to use in Hogwarts Legacy. You might be even able to use dark magic and perform the killing curse Avada Kedavra.
However, that could unlock a "evil route" that you take and it might changes the story.
Hogwarts Legacy will be coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in ‘Holiday 2022’. If you haven't already, check out the trailer. Looks crisp.
