Building on its success on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be back on new consoles next month, the opportunity to celebrate the 25 years of the license, but also the triumphant return of Sony’s emblematic marsupial. If you’ve been taking a walk around Battle.net recently, you’ll surely have noticed that PC pre-orders have already started since the game will also be available on this medium during the year 2021.
The main new features of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be technical with a transition to 4K at 60FPS, all in 3D audio. The little extra provided by the PS5 will be the use of the features of the DualSense controller in order to experience various sensations when you use Cortex’s pistol or Tawna’s grappling hook.
You already have Crash Bandicoot 4 on PS4 or Xbox One? Don’t panic, the upgrade on the next generation consoles will be free and allow you to transfer your data from one generation to the next. For people who already own the game in physical version, it will be necessary to own a next-gen console with a disc player to benefit from this free upgrade.
However, we deplore the lack of new features added to the title and we hope that updates or extensions will be available in the future to extend this fourth opus. He will have achieved the feat of relaunching the license and it is not impossible to see new episodes arriving in the coming years.
If you want to take the Crash Bandicoot experience further, the King development studio is currently working on Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! planned for this year. The latter will be a classic mobile runner, with several elements of the license and will mark the return of Nina Cortex, the niece of the famous doctor behind Crash and her sister Coco.
We let you discover the new trailer while waiting for the release of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time on PS5, Xbox Series X | S and Switch on March 12, 2021 (no date for the PC version). If you missed this opus, we can only advise you to get it next month to take advantage of the technical improvements.
