Activision Announces Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, Releasing This Year

With the Crash Bandicoot franchise coming back to life in 2017 with the release of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, fans have been wanting for more of the iconic PlayStation character. With Activision’s latest announcement, it appears like we do not have to wait too long for a new Crash Bandicoot game because Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has been announced and it is coming out this year on PS4.

Crash Bandicoot was launched back in 1996 on PlayStation 1 and it received two brilliant games later making it a trilogy that is until today marked as one of the best trilogies ever released for the original PlayStation console. Thanks to the N. Sane Trilogy, players of platforms other than PlayStation were also able to experience this brilliant franchise. However, the latest Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is all about the future and it looks good for Crash Bandicoot. Let us start with the brilliant new trailer before we jump further down in the details of the game.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is a direct sequel to Crash Bandicoot: Warped left off. The story continues as Neo Cortex and Dr. N. Tropy are now free from their penitentiary and Crash, Coco ad friends must go across time and space to stop these three from taking over the entire multiverse. The developer Toys for Bob is back in the saddle and is currently developing the game.

The developer ensures that while Crash 4 will keep the core of what a Crash Bandicoot game is. It will continue to remain an intense and zany 3D platforming game defined by Crash’s brash attitude. The game will be tailored to cater to past, present and new Crash fans alike as the game features a reimagined and updated art style, new gameplay mechanics, and the ability to switch between modern and retro modes. This will help players who are looking for an old school platforming vibe from the game. The newer version will be more forgiving.

The trailer gives us a very good impression of the new art style of both the characters and the environments that the developer is going for. You will visit new worlds, lush vistas, and a large variety of never-before-seen enemies and hazards in a style and visual fidelity that fits a modern game. Crash 4 will feature much larger landscapes as well and will be ditching the linear approach of the original titles. Quite often, while exploring the world 4, you will spot a new level and you will be able to experience them.

With bigger and larger landscapers, the game will also come with new means of exploring them. You will have the options to wall-running, rail grinding and rope swinging that will allow you to explore every nook and cranny of the game. Crash 4 will also feature Quantum Masks, a brand new feature. These are the four powerful guardians of space and time that will allow Crash and his friends the power to bend the rules of reality and travel through time and space in order to save it.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will release on PS4 on October 2, 2020, and pre-ordering the game digitally at PS Store will allow you to grab the Totally Tubular Skins.
