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.

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.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time releases on PS4 and Xbox One on October 2, 2020. You can learn about the game and its pre-order bonuses in our Crash Bandicoot 4 pre-order guide.
