According to a recent post from the official Portkey Games Support site, Hogwarts Legacy will support various graphic modes for the PS5 and Xbox X|S, with the main points highlighting Fidelity mode and Performance mode. Fidelity mode, targeting 30 FPS, allows you to run the game at lower frames but with higher-quality visuals. In contrast, Performance mode prioritizes high FPS, fast loading times and a smoother gameplay experience over visual appearance.

The post also mentions support for Variable Refresh Rate, a system that allows your TV or monitor to adjust its refresh rates to your frame rate automatically.
