Publisher Activision and developer Toys for Bob have shared the launch trailer for Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time.
The new trailer gives a nice overview of the June-announced, highly-anticipated sequel, which is mostly a love-letter to fans of the classic platforming-action game. If you pre-order the game, you’ll get access to a playable demo ahead of its release next month.
Here’s the new trailer:
You can find the full rundown (via the official website) below.
CRASH FOURWARD INTO A TIME SHATTERED ADVENTURE
IT’S ABOUT TIME!
The devious villains Neo Cortex and Dr. N. Tropy have finally escaped their interdimensional prison, leaving an evil scientist sized hole in the universe. Now they’ve got their eyes set on not only simply conquering this dimension, but all dimensions, and it’s up to Crash and Coco to save the day. N. Sanity Beach is where Crash’s adventure first started, and where it begins in Crash 4. But there have definitely been changes since players first saw N. Sanity Beach all those years ago, and throughout Crash 4 you’ll notice changes to gameplay and even the art style.
ALL NEW POWERS
BEND THE RULES OF REALITY
Crash 4 introduces the Quantum Masks, the powerful protectors of time and space. Crash and Coco will need their assistance throughout the game to tackle the crazy challenges that are going to be thrown at gameplayers. Whether it’s Ika-Ika, who gives gamers the ability to instantly flip your center of gravity at the press of a button, Kupuna-Wa, who allows players to slow down time, or Lani-Loli, who allows one to phase-shift elements in and out of existence. Bend the rules of reality and alter your environment with these new masks on your journey to restore order to the multiverse.
Crash Bandicoot games have long been about finding new and interesting ways to play through the adventure. While you can switch between playing as Crash or Coco throughout this game, you’ll also get some fresh perspectives and new gameplay from alternate timeline paths. Learn some new tricks with Neo Cortex’s blaster or reek some havoc with Dingodile’s vacuum gun. On top of that, players can discover the bumpa berry-fueled take on mirror mode – n. Verted mode. This mode offers new ways to experience the game and earn rewards. One dimension could be asking you to traverse through a neon wasteland, while another tasks players with spinning paint all over the environment to see their path forward. Expect all of this n. Sanity – and more – in crash 4.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time launches October 2nd on PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
