Resetting Talent Points in Hogwarts Legacy

This feature is particularly useful for those who want to try out new abilities or adapt their characters to different challenges they encounter within the game. Removing talent points will cost players 200 gold per talent point, but players can also completely reset all talent points if they wish to fully change their build. To learn more about the different talents in the game, please visit the Talents page.

Returning Pre-Order Exclusives in Hogwarts Legacy

The upcoming Summer Update also includes the previously pre-order exclusives Felix Felicis Potion and the Onyx Hippogriff Mount. The Felix Felicis Potion allows the player to see all the locations of every treasure chest on the mini-map for 1 in-game day upon consumption. It was originally a pre-order exclusive and the aim was to provide the players who pre-ordered the game an early edge when it comes to treasure hunting.

The Onyx Hippogriff Mount, also known as Caligo, is a majestic black variant of the Hippogriff. It functions similarly to the standard Hippogriff and the changes are only cosmetic. The addition of these once-exclusive features is part of the developers' effort to make exclusive content more widely accessible, enhancing the gameplay experience of all players across all platforms, and allowing players to enjoy these unique features without any extra cost.

The upcoming Summer Update will also include bug fixes on all platforms and driver and SDK updates specifically for PC. This was confirmed by Hogwarts Legacy's community manager, Chandler Wood, as he posted on social media to expect patch notes when the update drops on June 6th.

New Photo Mode in Hogwarts Legacy

The new Photo Mode finally being added in Hogwarts Legacy is what the fans have been requesting since launch. This feature allows players to capture and share their magical moments within the game. Whether you're trying to capture the majestic architecture of Hogwarts Castle, the lush landscapes of the Forbidden Forest, or the magical creatures that inhabit the wizarding world, the new Photo Mode provides various tools and features to enhance the screenshots and moments players capture, allowing them to adjust camera angles, add filters, and manipulate certain aspects of the photo to create the perfect shot.

Players will be able to adjust the camera angle, zoom, and focus to get the ideal composition. Additionally, various filters, frames, and effects can be applied to personalize each photo. Players can also change the weather during photo mode, and remove unwanted NPCs that are getting in the way of the scenery. Players can even remove themselves from the picture if they just want to take a photo of the beautiful landscapes.

Haunted Hogsmeade Shop Quest in Hogwarts Legacy

The Haunted Hogsmeade Shop Quest was initially a PlayStation-exclusive content that features a unique story and adventure where players acquire a shop in Hogsmeade and uncover the dark secrets hidden within the shop's walls. It involves a series of challenges that will allow players to delve into the shop's haunted past. Upon completion, the players will be rewarded with a special cosmetic set and access to the shop itself, which players can use to sell and buy certain items at better rates.

This quest was particularly praised online for its engaging storyline and how it expands the wizarding world of Hogwarts Legacy as it adds a touch of horror to the game's already rich narrative. This content will now be available on all platforms once the update is released. To unlock this quest, players will need to complete Professor Weasley's assignment in the main story, then head over to Hogsmeade and find a house elf named Penny to start the side quest called Minding Your Own Business.

Additional Cosmetic Items in Hogwarts Legacy

The rest of the items that are included for the upcoming Summer Update feature some new cosmetic items, including "The Glasses That Lived", the "Azkaban Prisoner's Outfit & Coat", and the "Lavender Borealis Broom". The first new cosmetic worth noting here is The Glasses That Lived, these pair of glasses serve as a tribute to the main character of the Harry Potter series, and now players will be able to add a touch of Harry Potter's signature style to their own characters within the game.

The Azkaban Prisoner's Outfit & Coat is a thematic costume inspired by the wizarding prison, Azkaban. This outfit features a rugged prison uniform and a coat, capturing the gritty and ominous atmosphere associated with the prison walls. The Lavender Borealis Broom is a beautifully designed broomstick featuring a striking lavender color scheme with borealis accents. This broom stands out with its unique design. It also features a borealis effect that leaves behind the tail of the broom while players use it to fly around.
