Hogwarts Legacy players getting stuck on walls, rocks, floor or objects

Some Hogwarts Legacy players (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) have been facing an issue where the character gets stuck on some element of the map, like walls, floor, rocks, objects and much more.

It is alleged that one is also unable to open the game menu after getting stuck. The issue has been persistent since the game’s release and remains unresolved as of now.

A player complains that just within 5 hours of gameplay, they had got stuck in the map, under the map, and have also experienced infinite falling in 5 different situations.

Allegedly, they had to quit the game and reload an old save file time and again to get rid of the bug. Also, they were unable to move their character, access the pause menu, or fast-travel to any location.

Another Xbox owner alleges to have gotten stuck while playing ‘The Plight of the House Elf’ mission, after which they didn’t have any sort of control over any game element. They were even unable to load anything else.

Potential workaround

Fortunately, we did come across some potential workarounds that may help solve this problem. Firstly, you can try to reload an old save game file.

If that doesn’t work, then PC users can try using the Cheat Engine tool to move the character’s position back over the terrain.
