It’s been over two decades, but the iconic PlayStation character will soon be back in action: Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time was announced today and will launch on PS4 and Xbox One this fall. The fourth Crash game will release October 2, 2020, and it’s available to 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 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 down 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.
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 pre-order bonuses for Crash Bandicoot 4 and place your pre-order.
