Released back on PS4 and Xbox One back in October, Activision has recently announced that Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will release on next-gen consoles, as well as on Switch and PC on March 12, 2021. The game’s release on other platforms is part of Activision’s celebration of the Crash Bandicoot series’ 25th anniversary.
The PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions of Crash Bandicoot 4 will come with a host of improvements, including running with a 4K resolution and with 60 FPS; though the Xbox Series S will not be able to run the game at 4K native, instead it will upscale the game to 4K. Aside from 4K 60FPS, the next-gen version of Crash Bandicoot 4 will feature much faster loading times, as well as 3D audio.
While the game’s release on more platforms is great news for players who have yet to try the game out, owners of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are also in for a treat as the next-gen versions of the game will be available as a free upgrade (except in Japan). Save files are also compatible between PS4-PS5 and Xbox One-Series X|S versions of the game.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be available for PlayStation® 5 and Xbox Series X|S for USD 59.99 (around PHP 2,890) in the U.S. Meanwhile, pre-orders for Nintendo Switch are available in select territories now, with the game having a USD 39.99 (around PHP 1,930) price tag. Finally, the game’s PC version will come to PC via Battle.net, with pre orders available now for USD 39.99 (around PHP 1,930).
