Crash Bandicoot for the Modern Era
For those playing on Xbox Series X, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will have enhanced 4K resolution, faster loading times, and more! And you can play the way you want to by choosing Modern or Retro mode for that classic gaming experience — where if lose all your lives, you restart the level.
Bend reality with the four Quantum Masks — guardians of space and time — like Lani-Loli, who phase-shifts obstacles in and out of existence, or Ika Ika, whose power flips gravity allowing Crash and Coco to walk on the ceiling! Experience the story in new ways with alternate timeline paths, revisiting previous levels using different characters — like nefarious villain Neo Cortex and the reformed Dingodile — and more difficult platforming challenges. And test your skills in the new N. Verted mode, a wild take on mirror mode that flips levels and delivers new filters and effects across dimensions.
