Hogwarts Legacy Voldemort Mod Guide

Turning your Hogwarts Legacy character into an accurate portrayal of Voldemort requires downloading and using mods. Using a mod like Voldemort Character through Nexus, you’ll find a new character customization option to turn your student into this dark wizard. However, this particular option is only available for the PC version of Hogwarts Legacy.

As well, if you want to turn a pre-existing character into Voldemort, you’ll also have to install Character Editor mods and follow the installation steps to begin editing. For now, we’ll focus on new characters.

Like with any other mods, though, make sure you back up your saves first!

Below is a complete step-by-step for downloading and using the Voldemort Character mod:

  1. Create a Nexus Mods account.
  2. Head to the Voldemort Character mod page and download the main file under the “Files” tab.
  3. Head into your Hogwarts Legacy game files and browse to Hogwarts Legacy > Phoenix > Content > Paks > ~mods. Do the same in your newly downloaded mod folder.
  4. Copy and paste the three “zVoldemort-DEGO” files in the mod folder to your game’s ~mods folder.
  5. Close the folder and load up Hogwarts Legacy.

Once you complete these steps, you can make a new character and select Voldemort. Since Voldemort’s actual face doesn’t appear as an icon in the menu, head into Facewear in the character creator menu and pick the first option to find him. As a bonus, you can even equip glasses and hair to spice things up.
