Activision announced that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be releasing for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch, on March 12, and PC Battle.net later this year.
Developer Toys for Bob’s port for next-gen consoles will feature upgraded visuals thanks to the support of 4K resolutions at 60 FPS. It’s also confirmed that the game will take all the potential of the next-gen hardware, featuring faster loading times, and 3D audio. PlayStation 5 players can enjoy extended gameplay features thanks to the Dualsense’s adaptive triggers.
Check the new trailer down below:
PlayStation 5 players can feel the force of Neo Cortex’s DNA-changing blaster and experience the grip as they grapple with Tawna’s Hookshot. PlayStation 5’s players can also use the Activity Card feature which will give players a clear breakdown of their progress throughout each of the game’s dimensions, guiding them to achieve objectives and more.
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.
Bend reality with four powerful Quantum Masks — the guardians of space and time — like Lani-Loli, who phase-shifts obstacles in and out of existence, or Ika Ika, whose power inverts gravity, giving Crash and Coco the ability to platform upside down!
Experience the story in new ways with alternate timeline paths, revisiting previous levels using different characters — like nefarious villain Neo Cortex and the reformed Dingodile — and more difficult platforming challenges. And test your skills in the new N. Verted mode, a wild take on mirror mode that flips levels and delivers new filters and effects across dimensions.
Activision also confirmed that players who purchase or already own Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can get access to next-gen upgrades at no extra cost within the same console family on March 12.
