Hogwarts Legacy may be getting a golf DLC, but several players suspect that it was an April Fool’s joke.
Hogwarts Legacy allows players to immerse themselves in a Wizarding World. The game is based on the classic Harry Potter novels, however, it takes place before the novels’ storyline.
Since it is a newly-released game, it has yet to introduce expansion packs, but a golf downloadable content (DLC) pack is allegedly coming to Hogwarts Legacy.
Are there sports in Hogwarts Legacy?
If you are a fan of the Harry Potter franchise, you will know that the fictional characters regularly enjoy Quidditch and broom-riding classes. Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy players cannot participate in Quidditch.
This is because a student was seriously injured the year before your character joins Hogwarts. Therefore, Quidditch was cancelled until further notice. However, you can learn to fly on a broom by attending flying classes.
Regrettably, there are no other sports that you can enjoy in Hogwarts Legacy aside from flying on a broom. Players were quite disappointed by this, as many were excited to join their houses’ Quidditch teams.
Hogwarts Legacy: Adding golf
Hogwarts Legacy was officially released on 7 February 2023. Since it is a fairly new game, it has yet to introduce downloadable content (DLC) packs. Although players have shared their thoughts on what the DLCs will be.
Some players are hoping that Quidditch will be added to the game, but it seems quite unlikely at this point. However, it may be added to Hogwarts Legacy in the future.
According to a source who wishes to remain anonymous, golf will be added to the game as a DLC. This expansion is allegedly known as Clubs and Irons and will be released later in 2023.
Even though it is not Quidditch, several Hogwarts Legacy players are very excited to participate in this sport.
However, some fans expressed that they think it will just be a mini-game, but will in fact be added to the game in all its glory. You can allegedly enjoy putting challenges, long drive challenges, and full 18-hole courses.
The courses will take place in Hogwarts, Hogsmeade. and the Forbidden Forest. Although the activity is very similar to golf, it will have some unique aspects. For instance, you have to use your broom as a cart and trolls will assume the role of caddies.
Some players are questioning the decision to add golf to the game, but when considering the widespread obsessions with wooden sticks and plaid patterns, it seems like an obvious pairing.
Can you use magic while playing golf?
Since Hogwarts teaches you how to use magical spells, players are excited to use magic while playing golf.
However, golf is being treated with an earnest development effort in the game, which means that magical spells, such as Leviosa, will not be able to interfere with the ball.
It can therefore be said that the success of the golf activity depends on your skills and abilities as you cannot use magical spells to direct the ball. However, you can use your broom to fly to your ball or the next starting point.
It is important to note, however, that Hogwarts Legacy is yet to make an official announcement regarding golf being added to the game. Since the official announcement is yet to be made, many players suspect that this is an April’s Fool joke.
This is because the unofficial announcement was made on Saturday, 1 April 2023. At the time of writing this, it is impossible to confirm that it was indeed an April Fool’s joke.
Players therefore have to wait for an official announcement from the game’s developers to see if it is an official DLC or if it was an April Fool’s joke.
Will there be official DLCs for Hogwarts Legacy?
Even if the golf DLC is an April Fool’s joke, players can expect the developers to announce DLCs in the future, since it is an extremely popular video game and several players have already completed it several times.
Therefore, DLCs will ensure that players who already completed the game will still enjoy it by adding new content.
Keep in mind that you may have to purchase the DLCs in order to unlock the new content. We recommend that you keep an eye on the game’s official social media platforms and website to see when a DLC will be released.
