Hogwarts Legacy has finally been released and the game is breaking records however some players are experiencing game-breaking glitches such as corrupt saves and an infinite falling through-the-map glitch which has been making the game unplayable.
In this article, we are going to take you through some quick methods to fix the falling through the map glitch and get you right back into Hogwarts.
How To Fix Hogwarts Legacy Infinite Falling Through The Map Glitch
There have been multiple fixes reported to work for this. I would try the options below in order to avoid losing as much progress as possible.
1. Try To Use Your Broomstick
When you are no longer falling, if you have your broomstick, you should be able to press Tab to use your broom and then fly all the way back into the map.
2. Restart Hogwarts Legacy
If this glitch has just happened, the first thing you should do is simply restart the game. Fully close the game down and restart it from within Steam. This could potentially fix the glitch and get you right back into the action.
However, many people are reporting that even after restarting, the glitch is still happening. If so, move on to the next steps.
3. Load A Previous Manual Save
When the game loads in, instead of hitting left click on your mouse, click F. This will pull up your saved games. If you have a manual save you should be able to load into it to fix the glitch.
Unfortunately, if you have not saved in a long time you may lose a lot of progress.
4. Check and Verify Hogwarts Legacy Game Files
If you are running into this glitch in Hogwarts Legacy it could be due to corrupt game files. One way to fix this is by using the Verify Integrity of game files tool in Steam.
To use this follow the steps below:
- Open your Steam Game Library
- Navigate to Hogwarts Legacy
- Right-click on it and select Properties
- In properties select Local Files
- Click “Verify integrity of Game Files”
This process will take a few minutes and will re-download any corrupt files or new files that are required for the game to run smoothly. Once this has been completed you can re-boot into Hogwarts Legacy and see if it has fixed the infinite falling glitch.
5. Uninstall and Re-install Hogwarts Legacy
If you still haven’t got the game to work, this is a last-ditch effort that nobody wants to do. However, this will likely mean reverting right back to the start of the game.
If you have a save game file backed up then you should just resort to Step 3. If you are not willing to wait on an update and want to start fresh then go ahead and reinstall the game.
Hopefully, one of the steps above has helped you fix this annoying Hogwarts legacy glitch and get right back into the action. If you have any other fixes for this specific glitch, let us know down below in the comments.
