Crash Bandicoot 4 has been officially revealed by Activision with a shiny new trailer. Entitled Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, you can check out the reveal below, which came courtesy of Geoff Keighley and his Summer Game Fest!
Over on the official PlayStation Blog, the team at Sony talk about the new game and the direction it’ll be taking.
“Developed by Toys for Bob, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will keep the core of what a Crash Bandicoot experience is – an intense and zany 3D platforming game defined by a certain marsupial’s brash attitude,” says the Sony blog.
“Along with keeping that nostalgic feel, Toys for Bob is also tailoring the game for past, present, and new Crash fans alike through a reimagined and updated art style, new gameplay mechanics, and the ability to switch between Modern and Retro modes (one mode tailored to those seeking that old school platforming vibe, while the other is a little more forgiving, but no less difficult to master).”
Speaking more on the new look for Crash, the Sony blog adds: “Visually, Toys for Bob is introducing a fresh take on Crash, his friends, his enemies, and the landscapes around them with a new art style. While staying true to the franchise’s zany spirit, expect to see new worlds, lush vistas, and an absurd variety of enemies and hazards in a style and visual fidelity fit for the modern gaming experience.
“Expect to see larger landscapes this time, too. There are points along your platforming paths that you can spot subsequent levels within the one you’re currently navigating. The environments are alive with a wacky and wonky sense of motion and energy everywhere you care to look. With such vibrancy on display, expect a whole new set of platforming tricks like wall running, rail grinding, and rope swinging to help you visit every nook, cranny, and secret spot. The result is a love letter to Crash fans by Crash fans at developer Toys for Bob.”
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming October 2, 2020 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
