The Deluxe Edition, retailing for $39.99, offers 23 Battle Tiers unlocked during Season 1, the Season 2 Premium Battle Pass, and the Proto Pack, containing various cosmetics and items. The game supports cross-platform play.

The game focuses on teamwork and strategy, as players work together to collect and score the most Wumpa fruit, capture key gems to boost their score, and prevent the opposing team from scoring.

Leaked Gameplay Footage

Since the game’s announcement at The Game Awards 2022, gameplay footage has leaked online, showcasing a Crash Team Rumble match featuring several characters, their skills, in-game powers, and one of the MOBA’s maps.

A New Direction for Crash Bandicoot

Crash Team Rumble takes the iconic Crash Bandicoot franchise in a new and unexpected direction, pitting the series’ beloved heroes and villains against each other in team-based competition.

The game focuses on teamwork and strategy, as players work together to collect and score the most Wumpa fruit, capture key gems to boost their score, and prevent the opposing team from scoring.

The Legacy of Crash Bandicoot: A Brief Look Back

The Crash Bandicoot franchise has come a long way since its inception as a platformer game. 

The series initially gained popularity in the 1990s with its colorful and cartoony characters, challenging gameplay, and engaging storyline.

The latest installment, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, received critical acclaim for its fresh character designs and time-travel plotline, continuing from Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped and adding interdimensional changes to the mix.

Crash Team Rumble marks a significant departure from the franchise’s platformer roots, introducing a team-based MOBA style of gameplay.

This new direction offers fans of the series a chance to experience their favorite characters in a different setting while engaging in strategic and cooperative gameplay.
