After the modern remakes of the Crash Bandicoot and Crash Team Racing trilogy, last year Activision and Toys For Bob essentially revived the main series with the release of Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. At launch, the game was only available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but today Activision revealed that the game will reach many other platforms later this year.
Specifically, the game will be released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch and PC. Unfortunately, PC players will have to wait for the game to land on the platform of their choice – while it arrives on PS5, XSX and Switch on March 12, Activision just says it will be released on PC via Blizzard’s Battle.net Launcher somewhere. at the end of the year.
In any case, Activision says that with the PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of the game, we can expect it to run at 4K at 60 frames per second natively. On the Xbox Series S, we are told that the resolution will increase to 4K, although we expect the frame rate to be limited to 30fps. The PC version will also be able to run at 4K, but of course, it depends on the hardware you have in your equipment.
Those who have already purchased the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to the next generation version within the same console family for free, although there is a big caveat that you will need a disc-based PS5 or Xbox Series X to upgrade from a physical copy of the game. This means that Xbox Series S and PlayStation 4 Digital Edition owners will only be able to upgrade from the previous version if they have purchased it digitally.
Interestingly, it appears that the Switch and PC versions will be priced lower than their PlayStation and Xbox counterparts. While the Xbox and PlayStation versions cost $ 59.99, the game will only cost $ 39.99 on the Switch and PC. Pre-orders for these new versions are now open and we will notify you when Activision reveals more about the PC version of the game.
