Crash fans eagerly awaiting the fourth (official) game in the series are going to want to see what was revealed at yesterday’s Sony event.
A Crashing good time
A ton of new info was released yesterday about Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. That’s including a lengthy look at gameplay, highlighting all of that new stuff.
Now, if you can’t (or don’t want to) watch the trailer right now, then there are some highlights. For one thing, you can play as not only Crash this time around. Any level that Crash can take on, his sis Coco can too. But the fun doesn’t stop there.
You an actually play as both Neo Cortex, Crash’s main villain, and Dingodile. Yes, you can play as some villains, though in the case of Dingo, he’s not a villain anymore. Not really, anyway.
Past that, there are also new masks, and new outfits. Developer Toys for Bob has gone wild with the idea of Crash changing his outfits, and has included a whole mess of them that you can unlock through play. These are just cosmetic, but some of them look like tons of fun. And also, according to Activision, you won’t have to worry about purchasing any of them.
And finally, there’s a big time new mode to talk about. The new mode of play adds in fresh graphical looks. Some of them are pretty incredible too, like spinning to splash paint around an otherwise white course. Check out the trailer for a look. It’s worth it.
“Toys for Bob has pulled out all the stops modernizing this classic franchise, from bringing to life visually stunning worlds, to creating a wide breadth of content and new ways to play, like N. Verted mode and additional playable characters,” said Michelle Bresaw, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Activision. “We’re confident this is a sequel fans have been waiting for, staying true to the franchise, while also bringing a fresh, new experience.Michelle Bresaw, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Activision
