PS1 Hagrid has made it into Hogwarts Legacy, and it's so cursed

PS1 Hagrid has made it into Hogwarts Legacy, and it's so cursed

Modders have already added PS1 Hagrid to Hogwarts Legacy, and it's hilarious.

Today marks one full week since Hogwarts Legacy’s official release on PC and new-gen consoles, and modding chaos has already begun.

Modders work fast, this we know. It took mere days for Thomas the Tank Engine to make his (unofficial) appearance in the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and now, one modder has decided to take the game back to its roots with a nod to Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone, depending on where you’re from) for the original PlayStation. Behold - PS1 Hagrid in all his glory.

Take a look at PS1 Hagrid in Hogwarts Legacy - I implore you to turn the sound on.

A wall of Hagrid - it truly doesn’t get better than this. Complete with all his memorable quotes from the 2001 PlayStation classic, the mod is admittedly rather cursed, but it’s also oddly nostalgic. There’s no Hogwarts without you, Hagrid.

Meanwhile, other modders have been working on adding multiplayer functionality to the game. It’s early in development, but a test build is available to try right now. Full functionality (for up to eight players at a time) is expected to roll out in the coming months - many fans were disappointed prior to release when it was revealed that Hogwarts Legacy was going to be a purely single-player experience, so it’s going to be a huge deal when it’s all smoothed out.

Hogwarts Legacy’s release has been highly contentious - many have decided to boycott the title due to its association with J.K. Rowling, who has been heavily criticised for making harmful comments about the trans community. Despite not being directly involved with the game’s development, she will still profit from the its sales.

The game is set to release on PS4 and Xbox One on 4 April, and Nintendo Switch on 25 July.
