As Hogwarts Legacy continues to stir hype through its gameplay showcases, soundtrack releases, and other big reveals until its official launch dates, there’s one question that many have thought of: Can I play this game with friends? After all, what better way to enjoy an open-world experience full of magic and mystery than to do quests alongside other people? If you’re interested in learning more, continue reading to discover whether Hogwarts Legacy will have multiplayer co-op.
Will Hogwarts Legacy Have Multiplayer Co-Op?
While Hogwarts Legacy would ignite some interesting interactions and events as a multiplayer game, this will not become a reality in the game’s future. Hogwarts Legacy is intended to be a single-player action RPG that, although available on multiple platforms, will not have any co-op or online multiplayer options. However, you’ll still need a stable internet connection to download the game and any bugfix patches that may follow its release. More information on this and other questions about the game are further explained in the game’s Frequently Asked Questions.
Despite the game having no online capabilities, this doesn’t mean you’ll be alone during your Hogwarts Legacy adventures. Like similarly-styled games, you’ll be able to interact with various NPCs, including befriending fellow classmates at the Wizarding School. These students allow you to have a companion who will join you throughout your quests and share more information about the world. While this doesn’t quite replace a real-world friend, it does help with learning the game’s lore.
Hogwarts Legacy will be available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch through the official website.
