Hogwarts Legacy February 17 PS5 update fixes trophies and improves stability

Like the PC and Xbox Series X/S patch that arrived on February 14, this patch mainly addresses issues that get resolved in typical day-one patches. Things like general bug fixes and overall stability improvements are present in the 01.000.004 patch on PS5 as well.

However, this patch specifically addresses some PS5-centric trophy issues surrounding the ‘Collector’s Edition’ trophy, which involves completing the game’s Collection menu. Now, players who should have earned the trophy on PS5 beforehand but didn’t will see it retroactively pop upon loading up the game.

This patch also fixes a handful of other bugs like NPCs causing the game to crash, Owl Mail not triggering sequential quests, and save game issues that affected all versions of the game.
