Hogwarts Legacy fans, today's your day! The official Summer 2024 Update is now live on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, introducing a few new features including a Photo Mode along with plenty of bug fixes.

As we mentioned recently, this update also brings the Haunted Shop Mission to all versions of Hogwarts Legacy on Xbox - it was previously exclusive to PlayStation alone. Some of the exclusive cosmetics have also been brought over.

Interestingly, in a separate story about Suicide Squad today, Bloomberg's Jason Schreier has mentioned that a "Director's Cut" of Hogwarts Legacy is currently in the works, so we'll keep an eye out for more details on that.

Here are the full patch notes for Hogwarts Legacy's Summer Update on Xbox Series X and S. The Xbox One patch notes differ slightly in terms of the specific bug fixes that have been implemented for the last-gen versions.
