Is Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer?

What’s better than attending classes at Hogwarts, flying around the grounds on a broom, and learning new spells and potions? Doing all that with a friend, of course!

Hogwarts Legacy is giving Harry Potter fans of all ages the chance to explore an open-world version of the fantastical school for the very first time. Students get sorted into one of Hogwarts’ famous houses, master every form of magic, and find themselves in the middle of all sorts of wild magical adventures.

Is Hogwarts Legacy multiplayer?

As of right now, Hogwarts Legacy is an entirely single-player experience. That’s by design — since the game’s first marketing material popped up online, developer Avalanche Software has been consistently clear that the game was not designed to have any co-op or online gameplay.

But there’s still hope for multiplayer action at Hogwarts thanks to modders. It’s still in its early days, but an in-progress mod called HogWarp aims to allow for co-op Hogwarts Legacy gameplay for up to eight players. The mod is being worked on by Together Team, a mod team that has successfully brought multiplayer gameplay to Bethesda’s hit fantasy RPG Skyrim in the past with a project called Skyrim Together.

“Our aim is to figure out how to do the basics, such as spawning characters with the player’s appearance, animations and NPCs,” mod maker Yamashi told PC Gamer in an interview. “We are not going to create any multiplayer-specific content ourselves; we want to provide a stable framework so that people can enjoy the vanilla game and maybe extend it themselves later on.”

Team Together posted a video of the mod’s test build just days after the official Hogwarts Legacy release.

Yamashi is currently working on the mod solo, but other modders are reportedly eyeing the opportunity to join the project. A test build of the mod is available for subscribers to Yamashi’s Patreon, but the modder has warned anyone jumping in “to expect something very bare-bones and buggy” at this point. A more complete version of the mod might be available in several months.

Crash Team Rumble is coming out sooner than you think
Other players attack Crash Bandicoot in Crash Team Rumble.

The release date for Crash Bandicoot's competitive multiplayer game Crash Team Rumble has been revealed, and it is not that far away. The game will launch in just three months, on June 20, and a Closed Beta for it will be held in April.
Video Games Chronicle confirmed this date and additional launch details following years of leaks surrounding the game and its official announcement at The Game Awards 2022. Crash Team Rumble is a 4v4 multiplayer game where players fight to get more Wumpa Fruit than their opponents, clashing with each other in the process. Ultimately, it looks like Crash Team Rumble is trying to spice up Crash Bandicoot's trademark collectible-driven 3D platforming with elements that would not be out of place in a competitive hero shooter. Not much of the game has been seen since its announcement, but we have a clear idea of when and how we'll see it in action now.

VGC's report also confirms that Crash Team Rumble will support cross-play, have at least two seasons with premium battle passes, and let players who preorder play a Closed Beta featuring Crash, Coco, Tawna, Neo Cortex, and Dingodile between April 20 and April 24. The Standard Edition of the game will cost $30 and comes with the first season's battle pass. There will also be a $40 Deluxe Edition, which instantly unlocks 25 tiers of that Season 1 battle pass, comes with Season 2's battle pass, and gives players "Blocky skins and items from the Digital Proto Pack DLC. 
Crash Team Rumble will be released for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on June 30.

When the N64 was introduced to the gaming world, people were taken aback by how the graphics came to life compared to NES games and SNES. The concept of "3-D gaming" was entirely new, bringing us closer to the characters and stories we already loved. New Mario games and Pokemon titles became some of the highlights for the system, bringing characters to life in a way we had not seen before. Although not all the games from the N64 could survive the tests of time, there are quite a few that have place in our hearts. In honor of these games we grew up and loved so much, we have compiled a list of all of the best N64 games based on their genre.
