If you’ve already got the game on the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, you’re in luck if you want to play through it again. Like many other games released near the end of the last generation of games, those who own the game can upgraded to the next-gen version at no cost. The only catch is that if you bought a disc version of the game and then bought a next-gen console that doesn’t have a disc drive, you of course won’t be able to upgrade that way.
As for the game’s performance on these new platforms and on the PC, Activision shared some details on what players can expect.
“PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions will support native 4K at 60FPS, while Xbox Series S versions will upscale to 4K,” Activision said. “On PC Battle.net, 4K will be supported based on players’ PC specs; framerate is uncapped, and the game will run at 60FPS when playing with recommended specs. Internet required on PC. 4K compatible display required for 4K resolution.”
Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time is now available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S as of Friday with the PC release coming on March 26th.
