Crash Landing into the current generation.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be releasing in a few months, and it will be doing so without microtransactions.
We're seeing confusion about #MTX in @CrashBandicoot 4 and want to be 💎 clear: There are NO MICROTRANSACTIONS in #Crash4. As a bonus, the Totally Tubular skins are included in all digital versions of the game.

During the launch of Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, its release showed that the game had microtransactions, which made fans upset. Activision has a history of throwing in loot boxes and additional buy-ins on their AAA games like Star Wars Battlefront II and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Two games that had a 60 dollar sticker price and included “pay to win” elements such as buying randomly-generated loot boxes in hopes of getting an overpowered weapon.
This will be Crash’s big return to the current generation consoles. Fans old and new are generating a lot of hype for their beloved characters’ big comeback. With reportedly 100+ levels to play through and experience the series. Returning characters like Dr. Neo Cortex and Coco will also be playable.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will release October 2nd on Xbox One and Playstation 4. Are you excited for the return of Crash? Let us know down below and follow us for more coverage.
