Halo Infinite’s Fracture: Tenrai event has returned, bringing even more samurai-themed cosmetics for your Spartan. These can be unlocked through a set of challenges, so here’s how to complete Week 4’s Tenrai event challenges.

Halo Infinite’s multiplayer was one of the best-received shooters in 2021, with its classic map design, unique weapons, and ranked mode support. However, players were unimpressed with its first event, Fracture: Tenrai, due to the most sought-after rewards being locked behind a paywall.

Fracture: Tenrai returned in 2022 with an overhauled free event pass bringing more samurai-themed cosmetics and far fewer XP bonuses and Challenge Swaps.

You’ll need to complete a series of challenges to earn these cosmetics as well as the Ultimate reward, so here’s everything you’ll need to do before Week 4 ends on Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

Halo Infinite’s Fracture: Tenrai challenges are marked by an orange banner on your Challenges list, and it’s only these that will progress the event pass.

Here are all of the Halo Infinite Fracture: Tenrai Week 4 Challenges and their XP reward:

  • Win Fiesta Matches (1) – 300 XP
  • Complete Fiesta Matches (2) – 300 XP
  • Earn a Double Kill in Fiesta PvP (1) – 350 XP
  • Kill Enemy Spartans in Fiesta Matches (1) – 300 XP
  • Earn Double Kills in Fiesta (1) – 300 XP
  • Earn Double Kills in Fiesta PvP (5) – 400 XP
  • Earn Assists in Fiesta Matches (10) – 300 XP
  • Complete Fiesta PvP Matches (4) – 350 XP
  • Kill Enemy Spartans in Fiesta PvP Matches (20) – 350 XP
  • Sop Enemy Killing Sprees in Fiesta PvP (5) – 400 XP

You’ll need to solely focus on Fiesta if you’re looking to complete the Fracture: Tenrai challenges, as this is the event’s featured mode.

For the most part, how quickly you fly through the challenges is dependent on luck and your own skill. Most will happen naturally but if you pay attention to your challenge list then you’ll be able to focus on a specific goal and fly through them quicker.

The only challenge that might prove time-consuming is ending an Enemy Killing Sprees, as this is entirely luck-based. But play enough Fiesta and you’ll be sure to finish it before Week 4 ends on Tuesday, March 1.

The Harry Potter franchise is soon to deliver its most expansive game yet and here’s everything you need to know about Hogwarts Legacy’s release date, gameplay, and more.

Harry Potter is one of the most iconic film and literature franchises in the world with countless fans across the globe. Hogwarts Legacy is looking to be the most comprehensive Harry Potter game yet.

With the content-rich wizarding world to draw upon, the highly anticipated Hogwarts Legacy will immerse players into the Harry Potter universe like never before.

Here’s everything you need to know about Hogwarts Legacy including the release date, gameplay details, and more.

Hogwarts Legacy release date

Hogwarts Legacy’s release date is officially confirmed as February 10, 2023, for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players. The game was previously slated for a Holiday 2022 release, but the devs explained that they needed a little bit more time to polish their product.

Potterheads won’t have to wait too long for the release of Hogwarts Legacy, but it is important to note that the game will be available on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC as of February 10, 2023, but not the Nintendo Switch.

The release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy has yet to be revealed. Considering that the devs claimed it would be revealed soon, it will likely be some time after February 10.

Hogwarts Legacy gameplay details

Prior to the massive gameplay reveal trailer, developers Avalanche Software teased that the game would take place in the 1800s. According to the devs this was a conscious decision to prevent your wizarding story to be overshadowed by a certain modern-day wizarding hero.

As the protagonist, your character will be tasked with investigating a gobline-led rebellion. The goblins have allied with dark wizards and you’ll have to take on some dangerous foes along the way. Hogwarts Legacy will allow you to explore Hogwarts’ massive grounds as well as many surrounding areas.

Wizard character customization

Players will have the opportunity to fully customize their character for this grand adventure. Once you’ve created your character, you’ll arrive at Hogwarts as a new student. Naturally, this means the Sorting Hat will place you in one of the four Hogwarts houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin.

Life as a Hogwarts student

Once you’ve been placed in a Hogwarts house, you’ll have access to your dorms and begin to attend classes. From Potions to Defense Against the Dark Arts you’ll attempt to hone your wizarding skills all while making new friends along the way.

As a student, you’ll be able to create bonds with classmates that could prove valuable in learning new skills later in the game.

Hogwarts Legacy RPG elements

Hogwarts Legacy upgrades

As you attempt to tackle the dark secrets that await you outside of the castle, you’ll certainly grow as a wizard. You’ll be able to upgrade your talents and abilities with the experience points you’ve earned from completing challenges.

Players will also be able to upgrade their catalog of spells making them more effective and powerful as they progress through the game.

In Hogwarts Legacy, combat between wizards will include the use of offensive and defensive spells but that’s not all. Players can also brew powerful potions to give them an advantage when facing enemies.

Is Hogwarts Legacy on Xbox Game Pass?

At this moment, there is no indication that Hogwarts Legacy will appear on Xbox Game Pass. The game will be available to purchase on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

There are sure to be graphical differences in the game between console generations. Xbox Game Pass members would love to see Hogwarts Legacy available on the service and the devs will likely address its availability as we get closer to the February 2023 release.

Hogwarts Legacy reveal trailer

Avalanche Software treated players to a gameplay trailer on March 17. The nearly 15-minute trailer showcased the most in-depth look at Hogwarts Legacy yet. The trailer unveils several key aspects of the game as it details the plot, combat elements, RPG elements, and of course a massive overview of the world you’ll be able to explore.

FIFA 23 players can’t play beta after crashing & connection errors: How to fix

While FIFA 23 players were excited to play the beta, crashing and connection errors are ruining the fun. Here’s how to fix the errors on PS5.

Published

FIFA 23 Vlahovic Juventus

Several players are reporting that they cannot access the FIFA 23 beta due to crashing and connection errors. If you’re hoping to get a first look at the new game, here’s how to fix FIFA 23’s beta bugs.

FIFA 23’s close beta went live on August 11 and countless players rushed to their platforms to get a first look at EA Sports’ new iteration of the franchise. Unfortunately, a considerable amount of players were met with FIFA 23 beta bugs that prevented them from accessing the game.

This is far from an ideal situation as the beta is only available until September 1. It seems the luck of players who were fortunate enough to receive a code for the closed beta is beginning to change.

However, there’s no real reason to worry as we’ll provide a fix for the FIFA 23 beta errors to get you back into matches.

It turns out there are a few separate FIFA 23 beta errors that are ruining the fun at the moment. One of the errors leads to the game crashing after players attempt to open the FIFA 23 application. This one is particularly frustrating as players can’t even get to the main menu to access any of the modes on offer.

Meanwhile, other players can access the menu but cannot play any modes, including the Kick-Off mode that should be available to everyone. With the player unable to select a mode, the FIFA 23 beta becomes utterly useless.

How to fix FIFA 23 beta errors on PS5

To fix the connection and crashing errors for FIFA 23’s beta you have to delete friends on your PlayStation account until you have less than 100. The issues were primarily impacting players on PS5.

This should work for PS5 players, while others are reporting that completing training matches eventually unlocks other modes. It seems there are more than a few bugs that players have to deal with. For the time being the method above is your best bet until the devs address these issues.

EA have yet to comment, but with the FIFA 23 beta available until September 1, there’s no doubt that they will work on delivering a fix for players soon.

Who is the most popular Apex Legends character? Season 14 pick rates

Apex Legends Season 14 is here, but which Legends are dominating Season 14 of Respawn’s battle royale so far?

apex legends season 13 pick rates

Season 14 of Apex Legends has tons of characters to choose from to enjoy its several maps. But who has the top Season 14 pick rates in Respawn Entertainment’s battle royale shooter?

Apex Legends hit the ground running when it launched with eight different characters to choose from in its battle royale offering. The game suffered a notable lull when Call of Duty: Warzone launched, but with many popular streamers such as NICKMERCS and Dr Disrespect continuing to support the game, Apex has grown expeditiously.

There are now a whopping 22 different Legends to choose from, giving players a headache before each game. With Season 14 now here, the new Legend Vantage has already knocked some fan-favorite characters out of the running.

Let’s see how the current roster’s pick rates are looking to give us an idea of the most popular Legends in Apex Legends Season 14.

Apex Legends Season 14 pick rate ranked list

This is our complete list of every character pick in Apex Legends, and we’ve ranked them in order to let you know which are favored.

Here is every Apex Legends pick rate in Season 14 ranked, as of August 12, 2022, according to Apex Legends Status:

  1. Vantage – 11.7%
  2. Octane – 10.1%
  3. Wraith – 9.3%
  4. Bloodhound – 7.8%
  5. Pathfinder – 7.8%
  6. Valkyrie – 6.8%
  7. Horizon – 5.5%
  8. Bangalore – 4.5%
  9. Lifeline – 4.3%
  10. Seer – 3.9%
  11. Loba – 3.5%
  12. Fuse – 3%
  13. Ash – 3%
  14. Mirage – 2.6%
  15. Mad Maggie – 2.6%
  16. Newcastle – 2.3%
  17. Caustic – 2.3%
  18. Revenant – 2.2%
  19. Wattson – 1.9%
  20. Gibraltar – 1.9%
  21. Rampart – 1.6%
  22. Crypto – 1.3%

Most picked Legends in Apex Legends Season 14

5. Pathfinder – 7.8%

Pathfinder has consistently been one of Apex Legends’ top five picks at 7.8%, and counting, for quite some time now.

As a Recon class, Pathfinder simply excels in movements and traversing the game’s various maps. His Grappling Hook and Zipline Gun are simply invaluable assets that will help any team in a pinch – either because of the circle or a third-party situation. He consistently manages to stay in the top 5 as a result.

4. Bloodhound – 7.8%

Again, with the influx of new Apex Legends players, Bloodhound is a great character to use for new players in Season 14.

Bloodhound nearly always stays in and around the 8-11% mark the seasons go on, and they have dropped slightly to 7.8%. Don’t let that put you off though, as they are easily the top Recon class to use in Apex Legends, thanks to their tracking tools and incredible skills, plus, their Beast of the Hunt Ultimate is priceless.

3. Wraith – 9.3%

Another starting Legend, Wraith has been a consistent pick throughout Apex Legends’ lifetime, and she has taken the number three with a 9.3% pick rate in Season 14.

Wraith’s stand-out features are her ability to get out of trouble very quickly – teammates included. Her abilities allow her to sense danger, become temporarily invulnerable, and create portals to escape predicaments. It’s easy to see why Wraith continues to be an absolute fan favorite in Apex Legends Season 14.

2. Octane – 10.1%

With a 10.1% pick rate, the speed demon has been dropped to the number two spot but continues his reign as one of the most popular Legends in Season 14, fluctuating between the top two places.

Aside from his amusing quips, he is the perfect balance of offense and defense. Despite being regarded as an offensive Legend, Octane can greatly increase his sprint speed which is useful for both attack and running away.

But most Octane users thrive on his Launch Pad Ultimate which can send him, and friendly players, high up into the air.

1. Vantage – 11.7% – Most picked Legend in Apex Legends Season 14

Vantage and Echo in Apex Legends

Of course, it’s the brand-new Legend Vantage that takes the top spot in Apex Legends Season 14. With an 11.7% pick rate, Vantage has stolen the show from other top Legends such as Octane and Valkyrie.

Vantage’s incredible popularity is probably due to her being new, but she’s not to be trifled with either. Her Sniper Rifle is an incredibly strong weapon, she’s able to wall run, and has a direct counter to Mirage.

How her pick rate will change throughout Season 14 remains to be seen, but she’s well-worth using on the overhauled Kings Canyon.


That covers all the picks in Apex Legends Season 14. As always, buffs and nerfs will come and go throughout the season, altering the game’s meta, and subsequently, Legend pick rates.

We’ll be sure to keep this updated regularly so you can stay on top of the in picks and don’t forget to check out why Mad Maggie has climbed up the rankings this season.
