Hogwarts Legacy Valentine’s Update Targets Issues on PC, Xbox (Full Patch Notes)

A Valentine's gift from WB Games, here are the complete patch notes for the Hogwarts Legacy performance update 1.120320 released on February 14.

It’s no secret that Hogwarts Legacy has faced a relatively rough launch period since releasing in full on February 10. Though PC players have faced the brunt of the bugs and glitches present in the game, with black screens, crashes, and ray tracing issues being just a few of the hurdles keeping them from exploring the open-world RPG, PlayStation and Xbox fans have also run into a fair few glitches. Developer WB Games hopes to have squashed a few of those with the latest 1.120320 patch update.
