Hogwarts Legacy: Spellmaster is the fan expansion fans long for

Master of spells

Hogwarts Legacy is a pretty good game. Some would even argue it's a great game! But as we get further from the release and that initial rush of hype, it's increasingly clear fans expected and wanted more.

To be fair to Hogwarts Legacy, there was way too much expectation surrounding it. The fact that it managed to live up to fans' lofty hype at all instead of instantly crashing and burning is a testament to Avalanche Software's hard work.

Take a look at the houses of Hogwarts Legacy below:

Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy just doesn't really stack up when compared to other 2023 games like The Legend Of Zelda: Tears Of The Kingdom, Baldur's Gate 3, and Starfield. By comparison, the Wizarding World sim just feels a little... empty. It could definitely do with some more content then, right?

That's where Hogwarts Legacy: Spellmaster comes in. This is a wonderful fan-made gameplay expansion that adds a bunch of new spells for players to get the hang of, and introduce some fun new elements to combat - an area of the game that otherwise gets increasingly stale the further in you get.

The mod enables the following spells to be utilised in combat: Confundo, Diffindo Maxima, Obliviate, Pestis Incendium, Petrificus Totalus and Stupefy. Once the mod is installed, you'll be able to equip them like any other spell, with each having their own unique effect on enemies.

Pestis Incendium unleashes a powerful fire attack, while Diffindo Maxima is basically Diffindo with higher range. Stupefy is a new kind of counter-attack, and Obliviate wipes the enemy's mind. Confundo confuses enemies for a short duration and finally, Petrificus Totalus functions just as it does in stealth.

While Hogwarts Legacy might not have any official expansions, fans have been having a great time extending the game's life. From rideable dragon mounts, a wanted-system similar to Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto games, and even the Sword of Gryffindor as a weapon, there's been plenty to see and do. Basically, modders will be keeping this game alive while we wait for Hogwarts Legacy 2. Ain't that always the way?
