Hogwarts Legacy has acquired an enormous patch which factors its wand at spiders and says “expelliarmus!” A brand new Arachnophobia mode has been added which, when toggled, adjustments the looks of all of the game’s spiders, removes their skitters and screeches, and removes sure spider-centric results from the game. Curiously sufficient, this appears to have been prompted by a well-liked mod that appeared shortly after launch which did the identical factor.

After which, the bug jokes just about write themselves. Developer Avalanche has been on a squishing mission and the patch notes are voluminous with a number of save game fixes, numerous fixes to points that might trigger the participant to fall out of the world, a number of potential crash fixes, fixes to issues with the collections and Area Guide pages, and fixes to sure quests that might be left unimaginable to finish if the participant did sure issues.

The complete checklist is mind-numbingly intensive, however I sifted via it for the vaguely humorous bits so you do not have to.

  • Resolved Poacher Ranger treadmilling onto a wall when the Avatar casts Disillusionment and hides after a cutscene
  • Resolved bumping the elf inflicting the NPC to multiply and stack on the pumpkin
  • Resolved NPCs utilizing sure stations being misplaced, noticeably floating within the air throughout Halloween
  • Resolved NPC Alfred Lawley strolling towards the wall indefinitely when getting alert from the opposite facet of the wall
  • Resolved Dugbogs not being harmed when lifted by the tongue
  • Resolved Adelaide Oakes intense gown clipping points throughout cinematics
  • Resolved Professor Hecat sliding to her spot earlier than establishing the dueling desk
  • Resolved Natsai and Sebastian’s necks briefly stretching up through the Three Broomsticks dialog
  • Resolved avatar bouncing on the water whereas swimming

In addition to this there are accessibility and UI adjustments, and a bunch of PC particular tweaks, most of which relate to fixing visible results and body drops.

Regardless of the controversy across the game’s launch, Hogwarts Legacy has gone on to be very profitable certainly: The final figures supplied had been that it offered over 12 million copies within the first two weeks of launch. The director says there are presently “no plans” for DLC, however in the event you purchase that then I’ve obtained an invisible cloak to promote you. Oh and, since launch, Warner Bros. has addressed one of many greatest points gamers had with the game, although possibly not in the way in which everybody needed: A brand new multiplayer Harry Potter game guarantees all the web Quidditch you do not get in Hogwarts Legacy.
