Crash Bandicoot 4 adds customization, new play style and characters

New game, new mechanics, same old wacky bandicoot



PlayStation’s most recent State of Play revealed a ton of new and exciting titles for the PlayStation 4. Even with the PlayStation 5 in the horizon, Sony still focused on its efforts towards the current generation in expanding its game base. One of such new games on the list is the much anticipated Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. It’s the orange marsupial’s all new adventure by Toys for Bob, and now brings more new features with it.

New game mode

The all-new Crash platforming game actually improves on the core mechanic of the remastered Crash Bandicoot: The N. Sane Trilogy. This time around, the developers are introducing a new way to play the platformer that resembles another successful Crash remaster.

After working with Beenox, Toys for Bob brought in the mirror mode aspect currently used in Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled to a platformer. They’ve dubbed this as the N. Verted Mode, and is ideally designed to add another aspect of replayability to the levels. Also, for this mode you will earn Bumpa-berries instead of the age-old staple of Wumpa fruits.

Customization and new playable characters

Another feature they’ve brought in from Nitro-Fueled is the customization option and reward system for Crash and Coco. Similar to CTR, you can customize Crash and Coco’s look through a variety of skins acquired by completing challenges and collecting gems in-game.

Also, for PlayStation players, they will be the first to receive two additional sets of skins upon release and purchase. These can be claimed once players clear the second level of the game and access the Dimensional Map.

Finally, for the new Crash platformer, it won’t just be Crash and Coco joining the fray. Earlier on, gameplay videos revealed that you can play as Dr. Neo Cortex in select levels — an ode to Crash Twinsanity. In addition to him, you can now also play as Dingodile who was a main boss in Crash Bandicoot: Warped. After the events of Crash Bandicoot 3, Dingodile retired from villainhood and decides to open a diner before it’s completely turned into rubble. or Crash Bandicoot 4, you will play full levels and even alternate timelines for the half dingo, half crocodile.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will arrive on October 2, 2020 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Pre-orders are still currently live for a retail price of US$ 59.99.

Metal Gear Solid

A Metal Gear Solid Remake might be upon us! According to several sources, it’s possible that we will be getting a full remake of the PlayStation classic for both the PS5 and PC.

YouTube creator RedGamingTech touched on this in his recent video, confirming from his numerous sources. Essentially, it suggests that the remake will be a PlayStation 5 exclusive with an available PC version.

The same YouTube creator also mentions that Metal Gear Solid 2, 3, and 4 are reportedly getting PC ports — or remasters. Whether or not all of these are true remains to be seen. But, if it is true, this will definitely bolster the amount of titles that will be available to the PS5, whether that’s upon launch or within the first year of its release.

Metal Gear Solid was first released in September 1998 for the PlayStation and PC. It’s a stealth game that follows Solid Snake — a soldier tasked to neutralize the terror threat FOXHOUND. The game was well-received by fans and critics. It sold over six million copies.

Within weeks since the price and release date reveal, people went crazy over Sony’s PlayStation 5. Apart from this, several game developers announced that they already have titles ready for the next-gen console.
