Graphics modes for Hogwarts legacy were detailed this week ahead of the game’s February release date to give PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC players an idea of what settings will be available and, for the latter, what specs they’ll need to play achieve different performance levels. We don’t yet know what the performance will be like on the PS4, Xbox One or Nintendo Switch as those versions have been delayed, but we should know more about them closer to their release date.
For the versions coming soon, the support page for the game has been updated with new information. Hogwarts legacy will boast a “Fidelity” mode and a “Performance” mode that target different resolutions and framerates depending on which one you choose.
“The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S console versions of Hogwarts Legacy support multiple game graphics modes, the most common being the Fidelity mode that runs at 30fps and the Performance mode that targets 60fps.” Warner Bros. Support page confirmed before the game.
For those who might be playing on a monitor or TV that supports variable refresh rate, Hogwarts legacy will also use that function.
As for those who will play on the PC platform, you have a tweet from the Hogwarts legacy account consisting of the minimum and recommended specifications for playing the game and the requirements for achieving Ultra and Ultra 4K experiences. The game seems pretty forgiving of graphics card requirements and other stats, so it seems those planning to play on the PC platform won’t have to make many compromises in terms of performance.

It was also recently confirmed that the game will be playable on the Steam Deck as well. That may have been assumed by many, but given that Valve lists games as verified on the Steam Deck, playable but maybe with some issues, or unverified, it’s good news to know that it’s good to be on the Steam Deck to go.
Hogwarts legacy is slated to release on February 10 for the PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC platforms. It will be coming to the PS4 and Xbox platforms on April 4 and will be released for the Nintendo Switch on July 25.
