Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time has a story that offers a fresh twist on Crash’s adventures. As Crash Coco and friends take on foes new and old, the game threw some welcome surprises at the player. We won’t spoil it, but fans of the classic platformer series got a quite good sequel. The gameplay also got a very timely refresh on consoles. The addition of modern control schemes and gameplay quirks was a huge upgrade for the platforming classic. The ability of modern controllers to offer finer control over Crash during gameplay was stellar in making the game fun to play.
Coming to PC, that fine-tuned control should remain. It would be a pretty good bet to expect controller support for the PC release. Yes, you read that right, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will head to PC. The port is due on March 26.
There is some bad news though, as this game will be locked down to Activision Blizzard’s Battle.net. The previous release in the franchise, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy landed on PC via Steam a while back after a lengthy run on consoles. It hasn’t been confirmed, but there’s a chance that the new game could exclusive to Blizzard’s platform.
The series of games defined by the orange marsupial has gone through a long a complicated history. The newest games are building on a strong legacy. And fans who have long ago swapped over to PC would be joyed to see that game coming to new platforms even faster. There’s the remaining question of what changes from the console release, and it’s kind of hard to answer.
As for graphical fidelity, that’s a little harder to predict. PC ports have always been kind of wild in terms of what features get brought over from consoles. The version of this sequel that lands on PC could be pretty sparse in terms of the final options. Players might just get FPS limiters, a few minor graphical tweaks, and some resolution options as well. Not to say that those are bad things, I just wouldn’t be too surprised not to see incredibly fine controls over graphical effects and quality. All in all, though, it should look even better than it did on modern consoles.
