Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X and S Series, Nintendo Switch and more this year, after its debut in 2020 on PS4 and Xbox One.
Activision and developer Toys for Bob announced that Crash 4 will be released for PS5, both Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch platforms on March 12, with a PC release via Battle.net later this year. The PS5 and Xbox Series X versions will run natively at 4K 60 FPS, while the Xbox Series S version will run at 60 FPS with upscale to 4K. These next generation versions will also include faster load times and 3D audio, and players who have already purchased It’s About Time on PS4 or Xbox One can upgrade to their next generation version at no extra cost, except in Japan and download about saving Dice.
The PS5 version of It’s About Time will also make use of DualSense’s adaptive triggers when using weapons like Neo Cortex’s blaster and Tawna’s Hookshot, while Activity Cards in the system offer progress analysis in each dimension.
For those who are not upgrading, the PS5 / Xbox series versions will cost $ 59.99, and the Switch version is available for pre-order today in some territories for $ 39.99, the same price it will cost on the PC.
Activision also promises more “fun events in celebration of the franchise’s 25th anniversary” later this year for Crash fans to wait, but future plans remain a secret for now.
