News about Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has been slowly rolling in since the game’s existence was leaked, and then the official reveal. It seems that more information appears to be coming from various sources other than the publisher. According to the game’s PlayStation Store page, It’s About Time will feature 2-4 player offline multiplayer.
In the game’s trailer, Activision showcased multiple playable characters in Crash Bandicoot 4, so co-op doesn’t seem too implausible. It seems that players will be able to control Crash, Coco, and antagonist Doctor Neo Cortex throughout the game’s main storyline. Activision has already revealed skin options for Crash and Coco, so if the game does contain 4-player co-op, there seem to be a handful of possibilities for additional players to select from.
This should be taken with a pinch of salt though, as it is entirely possible that this is an error on the PlayStation Store page.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is the character’s first all-new console game since 2010’s Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart 2. The game seems to be a throwback to the character’s platforming roots, and the story even takes place back in 1998, after the release of Crash Bandicoot: Warped.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 2nd.
