Hogwarts Legacy running on PC with ultra plus settings looks legit breathtaking

Hogwarts Legacy running on PC with ultra plus settings looks legit breathtaking

Turns out if you combine Hogwarts Legacy with a very expensive graphics card, you get some phenomenal results.

I’ll admit, as someone who’s only ever played video games via consoles rather than a PC, I’ll sometimes look at the capabilities of high-powered gaming PCs with awe.

PC gaming is probably the most flexible form of gaming out there - not only can users continue to update their hardware with shiny new parts in order to guarantee themselves the best possible experiences, but mods can add a whole new side to games that - 99% of the time - console users just can’t access.

Take a look at Hogwarts Legacy’s funniest mod starring the legend that is PS1 Hagrid below.

As Wccftech reports, in a new video, YouTube content creator Digital Dreams has highlighted what a difference certain settings can make to Hogwarts Legacy. The 11-minute-long 4K gameplay video showcases what the Wizarding World RPG looks like if you have a pricey GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card powering your games’ visuals, and have DLSS 3 (Deep Learning Super Sampling) and RTX (Ray Tracing Texel eXtreme) settings turned on. It's worth keeping in mind that they used the Ultra Plus Visuals mod, too. There’s no doubt that these things make a huge difference to the game’s lighting and overall vibrance - take a look below.

If you’re a PC player but don’t own a RTX 4090 (which would be very understandable, given the price tag), you might want to instead check out the Hogwarts Legacy Dream mod. The gorgeous reshade mod makes a subtle (but still noticeable) change to the game’s visuals. Most notably, everything has been given a much warmer hue, and the textures appear to be sharper, too. Something about the warm colours is super reminiscent of the first Harry Potter film, which fans of the movies are sure to find nostalgic. What's more, it’s totally free to download from Nexus Mods.

Hogwarts Legacy is almost available on every main gaming platform now, but the Nintendo Switch version has been hit with another significant delay. It’s currently set to release on the hybrid handheld console on 14 November.
