This Harry Potter mod built inside Minecraft is seven years in the making
How long has it been since the last great Harry Potter game? (It’s been eight years since the last Lego Harry Potter, if you’re actually counting.)
While we wait and wand-er what Warner Bros. is working on next, we have this – a seriously impressive Harry Potter mod built within Minecraft.
Built by a team of Potterheads under the name of The Floo Network, this mod is based around an enormous map of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
But there’s far more to it than just a recreation of Hogwarts. This mod includes magic spells and wands, NPCs and missions, boss fights and more.
Recreations of other parts of the Wizarding World will also be included, such as the Ministry of Magic, Hogsmeade and King’s Cross Station. Actually, a good bit of central London is included!
Speaking to IGN, lead developer Wednesday Frog explained the current project – some two years old – is based on an older Hogwarts map. Overall, work on what you see below dates back nearly seven years.
The mod itself is not public yet – the video below simply states it is “coming soon” – but you can follow development progress on the team’s Discord (and for access to that, you’ll need to donate to their Patreon).
Back in late 2018, footage appeared online which appeared to show an ambitious new big budget role-playing game set in the Harry Potter universe. Disney Infinity developer Avalanche Software as being behind the project, which we’re expecting to be officially announced sometime in the not-too-distant future for release on the next round of consoles.
