Is Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer?


HOGWARTS Legacy doesn’t see a full release until February 10, but there are various ways people have been playing early.

Whether you have preordered the deluxe edition, or changed your location to New Zealand, there are many ways to gain early access.

You’ll meet lots of students around Hogwarts.

If you are playing Hogwarts Legacy, you might be wondering if you can invite your friends to join you in the castle.

Here’s everything you need to know about multiplayer in Hogwarts Legacy.

Is Hogwarts Legacy a multiplayer game – does it have co-op or PvP? 

Hogwarts Legacy is solely a single-player game, and there are no multiplayer elements.

You cannot battle other players online, and you cannot invite other players to come to your castle to explore.

There is also no couch co-op, where two people sit in the same room and play.

You can’t even send your friends in-game items, or share your scores or best times with them.

Will you be able to play Hogwarts Legacy with friends?

The only way to play Hogwarts Legacy with friends is for one person to take the controller and for their friends to watch.

There are a number of choices that you can make throughout Hogwarts Legacy, and your friends can have input in your decision making.

If you don’t have Harry Potter fanatic friends, then you can always watch one of the numerous streamers currently playing the game on Twitch.

By linking your Twitch account to your WB Games account you can earn a reward for every 30 minutes that you watch.

If you watch the official Hogwarts Legacy stream, you will also get a reward if you watch 20 minutes.

While this is not the most comprehensive way to play with friends, it’s your only option, as Hogwarts Legacy is entirely single-player focused.
