The Hogwarts Legacy blue character bug should have been fixed but if you're having issues, then don't worry, it's easy to fix. If things aren't looking right it's probably because the game's accessibility setting for high contrast has been switched on. The effect is incredibly useful if you're visually impaired, but less helpful if it's on unintentionally and you don't know what it is or how to stop it. If things are more colorful than you like then let's explain what's going on and how to stop it.

How to fix Hogwarts Legacy blue characters
Hogwarts Legacy blue characters happen when a core accessibility option, High Contrast Gameplay, is on. It appears a bug is activating this mode for some people, giving you that distinct colouration and if you didn't set it then it's obviously going to be confusing.
To deactivate High Contrast Gameplay and get rid of a blue character in Hogwarts Legacy you need to do the following:
- Go to Settings in the main menu
- Go to the Accessibility options (the little picture of the man)
- Scroll to the bottom to find the High Contrast Gameplay option and turn it off
That should work and get you a game that looks like above, which is with no accessibility options on and no blue people or bright yellow doors and objects. There seems to no word yet on what's causing the issue but it will likely be patched soon enough.
