Crash Team Rumble arrives in June, beta in a month; New gameplay

Activision today announced that Crash Team Rumble, the 4v4 brawler arena featuring all the characters of Crash Bandicoot, will arrive on June 20 and will be preceded by a Beta from April 20 to 24, with an early access period dedicated to those who pre-order the game.

Here is the official information about the game, two gameplay videos and new screenshots.

Crash Bandicoot and his team are back in a new version of Crash with never-before-seen 4v4 team multiplayer! Developed by Toys For Bob and published by Activision Publishing, Inc. the launch of Crash Team Rumble is scheduled for June 20, 2023. Starting today, fans can pre-order Crash Team Rumble to receive early access to the Beta, scheduled for April 20-24. This preview will allow fans to experience the new title before it officially arrives on the market, and will give Toys For Bob the opportunity to collaborate with the community to create the best gaming experience for launch.

Early access to the Crash Team Rumble Beta will feature five characters from the Crash universe and three arenas filled with color, danger, and surprising strategic advantages, with the charm and personality of Toys for Bob. Those who participate in Early Access to the Beta will be able to play as Crash Bandicoot, Coco, Tawna, Neo Cortex and Dingodile - and can match their hero with unique powers and strategically use special moves and abilities to win. In Early Access to the Beta, teams will be able to choose from three maps, each varying in size, layout, challenges, and relic stations that unlock unique powers to give teams an edge over their opponents.

In Crash Team Rumble, fans can choose from a roster of friends and foes from the Crash universe, each of three roles: Blocker, Booster or Scorer. Teams strategically use the different roles to work together in order to be the first to collect the most Wumpa fruits in their own launch zone, while simultaneously defending the opposing team's launch zone. The powers of the relics bring an additional strategic element to the game, which teammates can use to prevail during the score, leading their team to victory. Crash Team Rumble comes with cross-platform play, which allows players from different consoles to team up and jump into the competition.

Crash Team Rumble will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation®®4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox® One® for €29.99 for the Standard Edition and €39.99 for the Deluxe Edition. The Standard Edition of Crash Team Rumble contains the full game, post-launch seasonal add-on and limited-time mode, early access to the Beta (for pre-order holders), and the Season 1 Premium Battle Pass. The Deluxe Edition contains all the content of the Standard Edition, plus 25 levels of Battle Pass instantly unlocked during Season 1, the Season 2 Premium Battle Pass, and the digital "Proto Pack," which includes a number of customization options for each hero and villain at launch and other items. Both editions grant players access to exciting post-launch seasonal content.
