Hogwarts Legacy Ultra+ Mod Adds Global Illumination, Ray Traced Shadows, And More

Hogwarts like you've never seen it before.

                                                                            Story Highlights

  • Hogwarts Legacy is a third-person Open-World Action RPG set in the Harry Potter universe. 
  • Hogwarts Legacy is developed by Avalanche Software and is set in the world of the Harry Potter books written by British author J.K Rowling. 
  • Modder SammiLucia’s Ultra Plus Ultimate Visual and Performance mod for Hogwarts Legacy adds a whole heap of performance and visual improvements to the game.
  • Some of the improvements include Global Illumination, Ray Traced Shadows, Ray Traced Water, and fixing Hogwarts Legacy’s frequent stutters. 

If you’re still playing Hogwarts Legacy on your PC, boy do I have some good news for you! The Ultra Plus Ultimate Visual and Performance mod, developed by “SammiLucia” has drastically improved the visual fidelity of the game. The mod adds graphical features such as Global Illumination, and Ray Traced Shadows and aims to have “higher than cut-scene visuals for the whole game.” 

The mod also improves Hogwarts Legacy’s lackluster performance on PC by reducing memory usage and fixing the texture streaming in order to prevent frequent stutters during gameplay. Not only the stutters, the mod claims to fix all of Hogwarts Legacy’s performance problems, enough to make it “playable even on lower-end PCs” which is honestly kind of impressive for a game of this fidelity.

Hogwarts Legacy looks better than it ever has.

Hogwarts Legacy launched earlier this year to critical acclaim from both players and critics. It received heavy praise for its faithful and gorgeous rendition of the world of the Harry Potter books, as well as its magic-based third-person combat. The biggest points of criticism against the game were its lackluster story and formulaic open world. It was also a massive commercial success, surpassing its publisher WB’s expectations by 256%
