Hogwarts Legacy

Portkey Games and Avalanche Software have released a new patch for Hogwarts Legacy, which focuses on improving the performance and stability. PS5 players should also see connection improvements, specifically more connection retries to the WB Games server before an event session expires.

Issues with Achievement data being pushed to the Wizarding World portal after linking are also resolved. An issue that prevented the Collector’s Edition Trophy from not updating correctly is also fixed, so it should retroactively unlock and showcase all Trophies earned thus far. Other fixes are crashes that could occur when World Events spawned, NPCs respawned, and so on. Fidelity mode should also see improved performance.

Check out the full patch notes below. Hogwarts Legacy is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. It releases on April 4th for PS4 and Xbox One, and July 25th for Nintendo Switch. Check out our official review for our thoughts and stay tuned for more updates.
