The latest Hogwarts Legacy patch has brought along an eight-legged treat for arachnophobes with the introduction of the Arachnophobia Mode. This feature transforms spider enemies into something less creepy-crawly and removes those spine-tingling skitters and screeches. It even hides those pesky spider corpses littering the ground, so players can explore without fear of encountering their worst nightmare.

This patch includes many bug fixes for the game, ranging from general issues to gameplay and mission-related problems. For example, it fixes issues with non-offensive player names being restricted when naming a character, gaps between walls, and mission progressions being stuck at various locations. In addition, some fixes for specific missions, like the Accio Ball fail mission becoming stuck and the accurate description finding and returning Rabe’s wand errors. Lastly, the patch resolves issues with the game crashing or freezing at various points, the avatar falling out of the world, and NPCs getting stuck in various locations.
