After all, while singleplayer adventures have charm, playing with others and getting competitive is just as exciting.

Is Minecraft Legends Multiplayer?
If you’re looking forward to playing Minecraft Legends with friends, there’s some good news.

In PvP matches, you’ll be able to battle with three other players in a 4v4 game, sharing resources and creating defensive structures while fighting neutral monsters at the same time. You can ride mounts, collect treasure and strengthen your character so you and your teammates can win the match. Teamwork and communication are key, and you won’t be able to win alone!
The downside? Minecraft Legends does not feature local or split-screen co-op, as platforms like the official Minecraft Legends Steam page don’t list it as one. Fortunately, there is crossplay, so you don’t have to worry about playing on the same device as your friends.
Alongside multiplayer matches, you can also experience a single-player story mode where you explore the world and fight against hostile Piglins. While you do ally with non-playable characters and mobs, you’ll primarily travel alone atop your mount as you progress through the story.
