Here’s what’s included in Hogwarts Legacy’s free summer update

Hogwarts Legacy is getting a substantial free update this week, more than a year after the game set in the wizarding world of Harry Potter debuted on PlayStation 5, Windows PC, and Xbox Series X. Developer Avalanche Software will release its summer 2024 update on all platforms on June 6 — here’s what Hogwarts Legacy owners can expect.

The biggest new addition to Hogwarts Legacy is photo mode, which will let players take customized screenshots of their gameplay. The game’s new photo mode looks like what we’ve come to expect from other games with similar features, letting players snap pics and apply various effects, including frames and filters inspired by Hogwarts’ famous houses. You can put your young wizard or witch in various poses — including sitting — and change time of day and seasons for photos.

A new quality of life feature will let players easily reset talent points from the Field Guide, but at the cost of 200 in-game gold per talent point.

And for players who want to see and do it all, the Haunted Hogsmeade Shop quest and its rewards will become available for all players of Hogwarts Legacy. Previously, that quest was a PlayStation platform exclusive.

Avalanche Software is unlocking other exclusives as well: The onyx Hippogriff mount, previously a pre-order exclusive cosmetic item, will be available to all players, as will the Felix Felicis potion recipe, another PlayStation exclusive. The update will also give players some new cosmetics, including the Azkaban coat and prisoner’s outfit, and taped-up spectacles.

Hogwarts Legacy is available on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
