How to Fix Blue Characters Bug in Hogwarts Legacy

Just like that, you’ll have fixed your blue characters bug in Hogwarts Legacy!

Why Is My Character Blue in Hogwarts Legacy?

The reason for the issue is currently unclear, but it likely stems from a glitch in one of the game’s usually helpful Accessibility Options – High Contrast Gameplay.

Turning the High Contrast Gameplay to Off will immediately fix the issue for all players.

And while a character being bright blue certainly helps and serves as a highly welcomed accessibility feature, it is not that useful in its current buggy state.

The issue will likely be patched out very soon. But for the time being, keep that High Contrast Gameplay off, and you’ll avoid the issue entirely.
