Hogwarts Legacy new update makes major gameplay improvements

Hogwarts Legacy's latest update has released and the patch notes reveal a number of quality of life improvements.

Hogwarts Legacy fans are itching for more. A sequel, an expansion … you name it. While I don’t have either of those things to bring you today, I can tell you that a fresh update has been rolled out for the game and it includes some major quality of life changes.

I say that fans are itching for more, it’s mainly due to the fact that Hogwarts Legacy is a game full of untapped potential. While some have deemed Hogwarts to be their favourite video game location of all-time, many players have noted just how empty and lifeless the open world is. Fans want a morality system akin to that seen in Bully, or a working companion system which appears to have been cut from the final version of the game. Plus there’s the desire to travel to Diagon Alley, the hope of Quidditch DLC … I could go on. For now, we’ll have to settle for a few gameplay improvements.

Enjoy a tour of Hogwarts’ four house common rooms below.

As reported by ComicBook, the patch was released on 2 June so if you loaded up the game over the weekend, you may have seen some of these changes in action. The patch addresses a wide array of bug fixes, but we’ll outline the most notable. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players’ wands will no longer be swapped for a generic one during cinematics, plus an issue with the collection count has been rectified making it much easier to complete your Field Guide. Several missing Field Guide pages have been fixed too, and issues relating to mission tracking have been resolved. There should be far less crashes in general.

Over on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, the main character will also no longer use a generic wand during cinematics, and an issue has been fixed where large gold chests were lootable when they shouldn’t have been. The Daedalian Keys reward should now be available if it wasn’t before, and the game’s general memory has been optimised.

On PC, a crash relating to VRAM memory leaking has been fixed, and there’s been an update to the latest NVIDIA Streamline SDK. All in all, your Hogwarts Legacy journey should be a lot smoother now.
