Crash Bandicoot is finally back with a new game. Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was announced earlier this year and will launch on PS4 and Xbox One this fall. The fourth mainline Crash game will release October 2, 2020, and it’s available to preorder 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 an all-out assault on the entire multiverse. Crash and his younger sister Coco must reunite four quantum masks and “bend the rules of reality” to save the day. The masks will help you through tricky areas, including a Time Mask that can slow time and a Gravity Mask that lets you move upside down. Crash Bandicoot 4 will have the same platforming mechanics but with modern additions like wall-running and rail-grinding. You’ll also be able to play as Neo Cortex in addition to Crash and Coco.
We recently got another look at the game during a Sony State of Play presentation. The video highlighted some of the more traditional aspects of the game, along with the ability to back through levels you’ve beaten, but with a new Mirror Mode twist on some of the mechanics involved.
Whether you’re a longtime Crash fan or new to the series (it did come out 20 years ago, after all), you can go ahead and secure your copy now so it’s ready to go on day one. Below, you can check out the preorder bonuses for Crash Bandicoot 4 and place your preorder.
