  • Open the Menu.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Display Options.
  • Navigate to the Performance Mode option.
  • Select Performance or HFR Performance.
  • Confirm your selection.

These two modes should improve the performance of Hogwarts Legacy on PC. The Performance Mode will set your settings to 60 FPS and 1080p resolution, while HFR Performance will set it to 120 FPS and 1080p resolution. We recommend trying HFR Performance at first but switching to regular Performance if you still notice issues.

You can also play with the other options, such as Cap Frame Rate, Motion Blur, and Depth of Field, to find the perfect settings your PC can handle. Other solutions include closing other applications and software while playing, verifying integrity of game files on Steam, making sure your drivers are up to date, and updating Hogwarts Legacy to the latest version. Some players have also found increases in performance through enabling Game Mode.
