More than two decades have passed, but the iconic PlayStation character will soon be back in action: Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was announced this week and will launch on PS4 and Xbox One this fall. The fourth Crash game will be released October 2, 2020, and is available for pre-order now in both physical and digital formats.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time picks up after the end of the third game, Crash Bandicoot: Warped: Villains Neo Cortex, Dr. N. Tropy, and Uka Uka are back and planning a total assault across the multiverse. Crash and his younger sister Coco must collect four quantum masks and “bend the rules of reality” to save the day. The masks will help you get through difficult areas, including a time mask that can slow down time and a gravity mask that allows you to move backwards. Crash Bandicoot 4 will have the same platform mechanics, but with modern additions such as wall operation and rail grinding. You can also play as Neo Cortex in addition to Crash and Coco.
If you’re a longtime Crash fanatic or new to the series (after all, it came out 20 years ago), you can go ahead and secure your copy now so it’s ready to start on day one. You can check out the preorder bonuses for Crash Bandicoot 4 below and pre-order.
