Is there a photo mode in Hogwarts Legacy? ...

Players have come to expect that most video game releases include a photo mode for taking fantastic screenshots. These often allow you to add fun filters over your images, adjust the focus, remove characters and NPCs for landscape shots, and (in the best cases) pose your character and adjust their facial expression.

The game of Hogwarts Legacy isn't the most graphically stunning, yet it's still a delight to see. The main magical school is bursting with detail, the buildings are intricate, the landscapes breathtaking and dramatic, and the action is engaging and challenging.

Put the camera away.

Unfortunately, Hogwarts Legacy does not currently have a photo mode, which is quite dissatisfying for fans. If you want clean in-game screenshots, you should go to Settings and disable every HUD display option, which will at least allow you to capture gameplay without minimaps and objectives cluttering up the screen.

Even so, this workaround does not provide anywhere near the level of accuracy and precision that an actual in-game photography mode would provide. We want to ensure that your customized student gets a personalized experience based on your requirements, therefore it's disappointing that we can't get them to take a (magical) selfie in some of the more scenic areas of Hogwarts.

The future holds hope.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla and Death Stranding have all launched without a photo mode, only to get it later in a patch. Sable, Deathloop, Deathloop, and Dying Light 2 have all launched without photo modes, though they eventually became available in later versions.

Unfortunately, while we're sure Hogwarts Legacy's photo mode will arrive shortly after its release, don't expect it to arrive until the game's official support channel has responded to a question about it, saying they "need no official information." The Game Team has been informed that players want it.

Fingers crossed it is on the way. In the meantime, we'll just eliminate the HUD and take snapshots that way.

Hogwarts Legacy will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC on February 10, with the PS4 and Xbox One launches scheduled for April 4, and the Nintendo Switch on July 25.
