Want to know if there’s Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer? While you have a classmate from one of the four houses as a companion who accompanies you in your adventures around Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, they are not the same as another player watching your back. They can’t do as good a job fending off nefarious warlocks casting forbidden curses or shouting that there are trolls in the dungeon, because you really ought to know.

The latest game in the extended Harry Potter universe has the potential to be one of the best PC games of this year, but you may be wondering if you can play Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer as part of a co-op – or competitive – mode. With so much to discover in the open-world game, it would be truly magical to fly around Hogsmede on broomsticks in makeshift obstacle courses or practice casting your Hogwarts Legacy spells in sparring matches to prepare you for more extensive tests.
