Hogwarts Legacy – Best Console Settings for PS and XBOX

Hogwarts Legacy – Best Console Settings for PS and XBOX –  In this guide, I will tell you why these issues occur in the first place and also some changes and tweaks you can do to your console settings to fix these issues.

One thing to note here is that some tweaks may depend on the monitor or screen you use with the console, so bear that in mind.

Hogwarts Legacy – Best Settings for Console (PS and XBOX)

As you start the game and use the console to move around, you will find a slight input lag. Also, I noticed that the game’s graphics on my console looked grainy and unclean.

As a result, I decided to make some changes that helped me fix those problems. I want to share those settings and changes so that they can help others as well.

To start, the game has three settings for console players. They are:

  • Fidelity – A high-fidelity rendering mode promotes resolution and graphics quality for Hogwarts Legacy.
  • Fidelity and Raytracing – This setting features Raytracing along with graphics quality improvements. But this one requires a restart of the game.
  • Performance – A high frame rate that promotes performance and fps for the game.

Let me first go over each setting so that you know the details, and if you want to make any changes by yourself, these points and concepts will help you do that.


If you use the fidelity option, the game gets locked to 30FPS, and you will have to bear with the low frame rates and a little input delay. Those who are used to this kind of scenario will not face many issues. You can continue to use the Fidelity setting. But for me, this option is not feasible at all. Most of it is due to my eye being used to at least 60FPS.

Fidelity Raytracing

This setting will give you frame rates at the cost of good visuals. I personally will not recommend using this setting. You can give it a go if you want to test how raytracing works in consoles, especially in Hogwarts Legacy.

My personal favorite setting is Performance. This will give you the best frame rates possible without compromising many visuals and graphics for the game.

Most of the games I play on the console will have this option, and if you care about FPS, go for this one by all means. I will explain the rest of the options and their subsequent changes.

Best Settings For Console

Take note that the “CAP FRAME RATE” option will be greyed out by default if you pick Performance. After that, make the required changes:

MOTION BLUR – This impacts GPU Performance, and it affects camera movementOFF
DEPTH OF FIELD – Adjust the depth of the camera in-game. This also impacts GPU Performance.OFF
CHROMATIC ABERRATION – You can keep this On since this does not affect performance much.ON
FILM GRAIN – This imitates how photo films work in the real world.OFF

If you are playing on a 4K monitor, keep the FILM GRAIN OFF for the best clarity and performance. This will be the most beneficial for your Monitor or screen and help you play Hogwarts Legacy with clear graphics.

Gameplay Options

This tab involves the camera and difficulty settings you need to change as per your liking. I will list down a rough layout and also what I like to use as settings for Hogwarts Legacy.

These settings are not for PCs since they will have more extensive options and changes for optimal performance.

These are only for consoles, and I hope these tweaks will help you play Hogwarts Legacy without many hiccups. Let us know what you think about the post and how you enjoy the game. Check our Hogwarts Legacy Guides section for more such posts.
