All confirmed characters in Crash Team Rumble

Crash Bandicoot is back with friends in Crash Team Rumble, a 4v4 online multiplayer game that pits classic Crash characters against each other in a surprisingly action-packed fruit-gathering race. The spinoff baffled fans when it was revealed at The Game Awards 2022, but the hype around the title has only gone up in the past few months.

A fun, chaotic blend of MOBAs, sports titles, party games, and, of course, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Rumble could end up being one of the most fun multiplayer titles of the year.  It may not be Crash Bandicoot 5, but it might just be the smartest use of the IP since its early PlayStation days.

Longtime Crash Bandicoot fans are obviously wondering if their favorite characters are going to make it into the new game. From trailers and hands-on experience playing the closed beta, here’s a list of all the characters we’ve confirmed will be in the game at launch.

Crash Team Rumble characters

Like any MOBA, each playable character in the game will have its own set of special abilities to use in the arena. Team composition can be just as important as skill when it comes to a multiplayer game like this.

Playable characters

  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Coco Bandicoot
  • Tawna
  • Dr. Neo Cortex
  • Dr. Nitrus Brio
  • Dingodile
  • Dr. Nefarious Tropy
  • Catbat

There will also be other Crash Bandicoot characters that show up in support roles. They won’t be a playable, but you’ll still get to see them when you play.

Support characters

  • Aku Aku
  • Uka Uka
  • Nitros Oxide

Crash Team Rumble launches on June 20 for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. It’ll have a beta from April 20 to 24. If you preorder the game, you’ll have access to a limited-time closed beta running April 20 through April 26.

All Geoglyph Memory locations in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
Link paragliding above a giant geoglyph.

A similar storytelling technique from Breath of the Wild returns in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, which is using memories to fill in gaps in the narrative. These, like most activities in the game, are not required to actually complete the game but are essential if you want to fully understand the narrative and history of Hryule and its people. There are 11 to find and view on the main map -- none are on a Sky Island or down in the Depths -- with a final Geoglyph appearing only after you've collected all the others. These appear as giant pictures of figures when viewed from above (hence the name), with a Dragon Tear somewhere on the figure you need to interact with so we will refer to them based on their official numbering, but you are able to find the first 11 in any order you wish. If you're ready to dive into some memories in Tears of the Kingdom, here's where you can find all the Geoglyph Memories.

Amazon’s New World team is making a The Lord of the Rings MMO
the lord of rings power what we would like to see in season 2 galadriel 3

Amazon Games Orange County, the development team behind New World, announced that it is making a The Lord of the Rings MMO for PC and consoles.
This game was made possible thanks to a deal between Amazon and the Embracer Group-owned Freemode, which is the parent company of The Lord of the Rings stewards Middle-Earth Enterprises. This isn't the first time Amazon and Embracer Group have partnered either, as Amazon Games is set to publish the next Tomb Raider game from Embracer-owned studio Crystal Dynamics. This also isn't Amazon's first attempt at making a multiplayer game based on The Lord of the Rings.
Previously, it collaborated with the Chinese company Leyou on an MMO set in this world, but it was canceled after Leyou got acquired by Tencent. Now, with Middle-Earth Enterprises under new ownership, which Amazon just so happens to be friendly with, it has become possible for Amazon to make a multiplayer game based on The Lord of the Rings once again.

Amazon describes its upcoming The Lord of the Rings game as "an open-world MMO adventure in a persistent world set in Middle-earth, featuring the beloved stories of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings literary trilogy." This game seems to fall in line with the string of MMOs that Amazon has been behind lately, which includes New World, Lost Ark, and upcoming titles Blue Protocol and Throne and Liberty. It is unrelated to The Rings of Power, the big-budget television show that Amazon Studios produces.
As the game is in "the early stages of production," according to Amazon, we don't yet have a release window for it. In the meantime, there are going to be a lot of other games based on The Lord of the Rings to play, including EA's mobile game The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-Earth and Daedelic Entertainment's action-adventure game about Gollum.
