Hogwarts Legacy: Is It Multiplayer?

It's been a long time coming, but some 25 years after Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone first hit bookshelves, an open-world Harry Potter game is finally here. We've had plenty of games set in the Wizarding World before, however, none are as ambitious as Hogwarts Legacy

Taking the magic of Harry's world and delivering a blast from the past, the game returns to the iconic school for Witchcraft and Wizardry. This time, it's set in the late 1800s.

Long before Harry, Ron, and Hermione attended, you'll take on the role of a fully customisable witch or wizard attending Hogwarts. With so much potential, players are rightly asking, is Hogwarts Legacy a single or multiplayer game?

Will Hogwarts Legacy include multiplayer?

Avalanche Studios has confirmed Hogwarts Legacy will be an RPG experience that follows in the being of the Fallout and Assassin's Creed franchises. Although there will be a suitably massive world that extends past the castle to the Forbidden Forest, Hogsmeade, and beyond, you'll have to go it alone.

By the sounds of it, the opportunities to learn new spells and level up your young character lend themselves to the game's RPG formula. It means there won't be issues with having to balance a whole host of players at different levels. 

A lot of work has clearly gone into making Hogwarts Legacy an immersive single-player game that tries to capture the "magic" of the story. Just like the Harry Potter games of old, NPCs are sure to play a big part. Of course, we know how throwing other players into the mix can complicate things.

Could Hogwarts Legacy add multiplayer?

Remembering that Warner Bros. Interactive purchased Avalanche from Disney in 2017 - and footage of Hogwarts Legacy leaked in 2018 - we know the title has been in the works for several years. With so much work having gone into Hogwarts Legacy, we guess there's scope for WB to expand beyond the base game. It's easy to imagine DLCs that could take us to the likes of the Ministry of Magic or Gringotts bank, but what if a multiplayer element is also on the cards?

You only have to look at the success of Grand Theft Auto V and its GTA Online spinoff to see how things could work. Sure, Hogwarts Legacy is a single-player RPG for now, but who's to say it can't add an MMO aspect to ensure longevity?

We'd argue that a magical MMO has the potential to even top GTA Online in terms of popularity. Considering there's been so much hype for an open-world Harry Potter game, just imagine what that would be like if we took it online.

Whether Hogwarts Legacy goes multiplayer or not, we've got to admit that Quidditch would be a lot more fun with you and your mates swooping around the pitch on broomsticks and whacking a Bludger at your House rivals.
