  • It removes small spider ground effect spawners.
  • Makes static spider corpses in the world invisible.
  • Despite all the above you need to know that spider images in the Field Guide will remain unchanged. In addition to all these changes, collision will remain active to prevent players from getting stuck when toggling this setting.

How to Use this Mode and why was it Added in Hogwarts Legacy?

  • Using or turning this mode is quite easy as you will get a toggle option. To find this setting, you will need to head toward the accessibility menu in-game, and there you can select to turn this option on/off.
  • Although there did exist a mod for toggling this mode before, now it has officially been integrated into the game by Avalanche Software. This comes as a response to people expressing their feelings over Twitter. Recently, Horizon Forbidden West added support for the Thallasophobia mode as well as Star Wars Jedi Survivor has the Arachnophobia mode.
