Hogwarts Legacy survived the controversy surrounding it and became one of the most successful releases in recent months. Its great popularity and good reception allowed it to forge a very loyal modding community, which is already looking to expand and modify the experience with all kinds of unofficial projects. Without a doubt, there are already some very interesting initiatives.
The Warner Bros. Games and Avalanche Software title is focused entirely on the single player section. Of course, many gamers miss a multiplayer component; At the end of the day, exploring the world’s most famous College of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the company of a friend is a fantasy for millions.

Incredible! This Hogwarts Legacy mod adds online multiplayer; so you can get it
The person in charge of this impressive project is the modder Yamashi, one of the minds behind the Skyrim Together Reborn mod that adds a multiplayer component to the acclaimed RPG from Bethesda.
The Hogwarts Legacy mod, dubbed HogWarp, is developed by Yamashi, although 2 members of the Skyrim Together team help increase the code base and there is a possibility that they will join the development of the project. In the meantime, a trial version is now available for subscribers to your Patreon account.
That preview version is very basic and full of bugs, as development is in its early stages. Still, it’s functional and in a shared video we see 2 players going through the magic school at the same time. It is expected that in the coming months the final version will arrive, which will be free.
