Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time

Here let us take a look at what we already know about this upcoming game.

The game is a direct sequel to “Crash Bandicoot: Warped”.

Here, the villains Neo Cortex and Dr. Entropy escape their interdimensional rift where they were imprisoned and now they are set on conquering not only their dimension but also all the others.

The developers confirmed all the new platforming features we saw in the first trailer. Players will be able to wall-run, swing on ropes, ride on rails and zip-lines.

Also, by earning gems and completing challenges, players will be able to unlock cosmetic skins for both Crash and Coco. The developers reinforced their previous statement that there will be no microtransactions in the game.

Then the developers went over the new “Quantum Masks” that we saw in the first trailer.

There will be a mask that allows the player to change gravity, another mask that allows to slow down time and a mask that phases certain objects in the environment “in and out of reality”.

Although the developers did not tell us what is the forth mask, and said this information is for later.

Next they went on to confirm that the player will indeed be controlling several different characters in this game.

For example, we will be able to play the entire game as Coco. She will also have a bigger presence in the story this time.

At specific point in the story, you will be playing as some other characters that all have their unique move sets and skills.

Amongst these characters you will play as Neo Cortex, or even Dingodile!

Finally, a new game mode was announced for the game – Inverted Mode.

Inverted Mode is an expancion on the standard Mirror Mode. Though in this one, not only the perspective is shifted, but each level is also transformed to present a new look or game play mechanic.

Some levels, for example, will become entirely submerged under water, while some may be colorless and the player will be splattering paint around them to color the level and see where to go.

The game releases on October 2, 2020 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, next gen consoles not confirmed.
