- Resolution: This setting controls the number of pixels in the game. Want to see every detail of the castle? Set it to the highest resolution. However, to do that, you have to set it from the Display settings.
- Texture Quality: This setting affects the sharpness and clarity of in-game objects. The higher the setting, the more realistic everything will look.
- Anti-Aliasing: This setting removes jagged edges on in-game objects, making them appear smoother and more realistic. You will find 3 options: TAA Low, TAA high, and DLAA. TAA High and DLAA run along the same FPS overall. You can go with either of them.
- Upscale Type: Without further ado, go with DLSS.
- DoF: Depth of Field will mostly be noticeable in cutscenes. Turning it ON will give you the best experience in those cutscenes.
- Effects Quality: It mostly concerns with the Particle Quality in the game. Needless to say, the higher you go, the more you will notice the performance issue. I would suggest go with Medium or High.
- Fog Quality: Set it to High or Ultra to feel the depths.
- Sky Quality: Sky Quality matters when you are on the mount with your beast while exploring around Hogwarts. Set it to Medium or High.
- Foliage Quality: It concerns with the ground foliage density. Recommended to set it at Medium.
- Post Processing Quality: You will notice how the brightness changes, which is mostly dependent on this setting. Set it to High.
- Shadow Quality: Doesnt differ that much. But set it to High anyway.
- View Distance Quality: It is concerned with the Geometric details of the object. Set it to at least Medium. If you have GPU to expend, set it to High.
All that is left is the Ray Tracing Quality. I would suggest playing it yourself. There is a lot to explore than getting suggested.
- Difficulty: Choose between four difficulty settings – Easy, Normal, Hard, and Insane. Be warned, if you choose the Insane difficulty, you might start to feel like you’re the one under a spell.
- Camera Sensitivity: Adjust the camera speed and movement to your liking. Want to whip around the castle like a nimble seeker? Crank it up!
- HUD Size: This setting affects the size of the on-screen heads-up display. The bigger the HUD, the easier it is to see what spells you have at your disposal.
- Volume: This setting adjusts the game’s overall volume. Turn it up to hear every magical sound, or turn it down to avoid being interrupted by the ghostly screams of Moaning Myrtle.
- Music: Choose how much magical music you want to hear during your gameplay. Whether you want to fully immerse yourself in the wizarding world or just hear the occasional spellcasting melody, the choice is yours.
- Dialogue: Adjust the volume of in-game dialogue. If you’re a hardcore Harry Potter fan, you’ll want to make sure you don’t miss a single line of dialogue from your favorite characters.
With these optimized settings, you’ll be able to make the most out of your Hogwarts Legacy experience on PC. Whether you want to see every detail, play the game on the hardest difficulty, or fully immerse yourself in the magical world with the perfect soundtrack, the choice is yours. Just remember, it’s not your fault if your wand malfunctions and causes you to fail a spell!
