Crash Bandicoot 4 Will Not Have Microtransactions
The sequel to 1998's Crash Bandicoot: Warped is the first main series entry in over 20 years.
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time will not have microtransactions, developer Toys For Bob clarified in a tweet. This comes after speculation that the game might have them because the Microsoft Store listing for the game states it "offers in-app purchases." This label may have been caused by the Totally Tubular Skins, which are included with the game but listed as a separate item on the store.
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.— Toys For Bob (@ToysForBob) June 30, 2020
Crash Bandicoot 4 picks up after the end of Crash Bandicoot: Warped as Neo Cortex, Dr. N. Tropy, and Uka Uka make another attempt at multiverse domination. In an interview with GameSpot, producer Lou Studdert spoke about the game's new art style, the new reality bending Quantum masks, and the new playable characters.
