For most, Hogwarts Legacy looks excellent, and its open world is beautiful. As it should, given its high-spec requirements. Many users quickly highlighted the recreation of the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the level of detail of the costumes and scenery, the effects of magic, and even the fact that practically every door you see can be opened. However, this can leave some PC players taken aback by the game’s poor performance at launch. FPS drops and a gloomy-looking map means you may not be taking full advantage of your specs. To get the most out of your rig, let’s take a look at the best PC settings for Hogwarts Legacy.
