Hogwarts Legacy Patch Notes 6/2/23 – Bug Fixes, Gameplay & Performance Improvements

Last round of bug fixes and updates was pretty major: among the items in the long list of updates (more than 500!) was the official Arachnophobia Mode, turning those twitchy leggy spiders into menacing little blobs on skates. This week comes with just a small follow-up of updates, including fixing mission and achievement bugs, UI and save file glitches, and ironing out some general performance wrinkles.

(Remember that you can help the dev team by reporting any bugs or issues on hogwartslegacy.bugs.wbgames.com).

Even without major changes or additions to report, the team’s continued work on the game almost 4 months after its release is a reflection of the game’s success and potential for new content in the future. There is hoping!

Meanwhile, here is the full list of Patch Notes:
