Hogwarts Legacy is what’s hot right now for gamers and Harry Potter fans. The action-role-playing game is available on multiple consoles where players get to experience being a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
As good as it sounds, it is truly a great game to play (check out our game review here), but there is always room for improvement and some laughter along the way.
This is where mods come in. What is a mod, you ask? As explained by Techopedia, modification (Mod) is performed to allow a gamer to play a game different from its original released version. End users or developers generally perform it, and the modded version is considered an unofficial version of the game.
So if you want to make the gaming experience better or for some quirky entertainment, we’ve handpicked a few mods that we love right now from Nexusmods.
Unfortunately, mods are only available for PC players.
“Better” Gaming Experience
Floo Lady Silencer
“Off to another adventure, are we?” Plus, all the other dialogues from the Floo lady every time you use the fast travel function can now be silenced. Thank god for this mod by TangerieDev.
Custom Female Face 14 Model
As enjoyable as the game is, you got to admit, the character design is a little shocking – predominantly female characters! Luckily, some talented gaming developers solved the problem with face enhancement mods like the above.
This mod is the best one yet if you also feel discomfort with the spiders in the game. The Arachnophobia Mode mod literally turns spiders into boxes. Goodbye, creepy crawlies!
If you want to experience the game’s full potential from the beginning, the Alohomora mod is what you need. This mod unlocks all spells, clothing items, wand handles, floo flames, conjuration items, gear traits, broom upgrades and the talent menu. This mod only works when you start a new save.
IKEA Shark Broom
Why settle for brooms when you can ride an IKEA shark toy? The viral shark stuffed toy, sold in IKEA, can now be ridden in Hogwarts Legacy with this mod. The mod replaces the appearance of the Yew Weaver Broom that can be purchased from Albie Weekes at Spintwitches Sporting Needs located in Hogsmeade.
Unleash your Jedi power with the Lightsaber Wand mod by XxCRAZYPOTATOxX. It currently replaces the Swirl-Dark Grey wand handle, with more wand handles to come.
Colorful Platform Crocs
This mod will replace the default shoe with one of 4 colourful platform clogs. Because why not?
Unfortunately, this mod will not work on male characters.
The Hog-Thomas Express
There’s a new train in town, taking students and Hogsmeade residents into London. This mod replaces the Hogwarts Express with Thomas the Tank Engine. We look forward to a theme song added to the train in the future!
