Hogwarts Legacy Mod Lets You Play as Newt Scamander

A new mod for Hogwarts Legacy allows players to play as Newt Scamander, the protagonist of the Fantastic Beasts film series. The player-character has already been the focus of a few interesting mods, with one Hogwarts Legacy mod allowing gamers to play as Voldemort in-game.

The Hogwarts Legacy modding scene has gotten off to a great start, with plenty of positive signs for the future. While it seems that the available modding tools aren’t as robust as what’s available for other games like Skyrim, mods will be able to grow in scale as the modding community gets more familiar with what is possible. Right now, a lot of the mods that exist are focused on the weird and wonderful, with one Hogwarts Legacy mod allowing players to fly on Star Wars speeder bikes. It’s exciting to follow the growth of any game’s modding scene, but the excitement of fans surrounding Hogwarts Legacy makes it a particularly great prospect to see what will come next.


The mod was uploaded to Nexus Mods by user AreKCrisiS, with a variety of images that show Newt Scamander as part of the world of Hogwarts Legacy. The mod is complete with facial animations, and replaces the fourth male face and tenth male hair, so players will have to change to these to see Newt in-game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t change the protagonist’s voice, so gamers will have to offer a level of suspension of disbelief in order to use the mod. Newt Scamander definitely fits the era, however. With Hogwarts Legacy taking place in around 1890, and Fantastic Beasts around the 1920s, he looks right at home with the older visual aesthetic.

It’s not the first time that AreKCrisiS has created this type of mod. They also created a mod that lets gamers play as Cedric Diggory in Hogwarts Legacy, so it seems they’re a huge fan of the film series. While AreKCrisiS left no indication as to which character is coming up next, users in the mod’s comments were quick to ask for many different characters from the franchise, including Tom Riddle, Grindelwald, and Hermione Granger.

Hogwarts Legacy continues to be one of the most popular games out there, almost two months after it was first released. It was only recently that Hogwarts Legacy was finally knocked off the top spot of sales charts, showing how much fans have craved a great Wizarding World title for years. Developer Avalanche Software is still yet to announce any DLC plans for the game, but with the enormous sales numbers, it won’t be a surprise if content is secretly in the works.

Hogwarts Legacy is available now on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S, with PS4 and Xbox One versions launching May 5 and a Switch port releasing July 25.
