Get ready to join Crash, Coco, and their friends on a wile ride through space and time on newer platforms, as Activision has announced that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be hitting newer consoles and PC this coming March — Bringing the newest installment in the popular Crash Bandicoot series to PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC!
With the announcement comes a brand new trailer that shows how the game looks in the new platforms.
While Crash 4 was already released last September for PS4 and Xbox One, the spotlight of this trailer goes to the new systems — particularly the PS5 and Xbox One X|S versions — which will contain enhancements such as enhanced 4K resolution and faster loading times. The game will also have features such as a “Modern” and “Retro” mode — allowing players to play how they want whether it be classic Crash or a new kind of experience entirely.
Here’s the overview for the game courtesy of the Activision blog.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time marks the first new installment in the Crash series in more than 10 years! Taking place directly after the events of Crash Bandicoot: Warped, It’s About Time sets Crash and Coco against their nefarious enemies’ evil quest to dominate the multiverse.
Players can spin, jump and wump through this single-player adventure as Crash or Coco with new gameplay mechanics like wall running, rail grinding, and rope swinging. The addition of powerful Quantum Masks gives our hero bandicoots even more abilities to bend the rules of reality and conquer dangers on their journey to save the multiverse.
Experience the same over-the-top action platforming the series is known for, including modern additions like quality-of-life improvements, visual upgrades, and the choice between Modern and Retro modes to match the appetite of both new players and longtime fans of the series.
