Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time will have launched before the week is over and with the PlayStation 4 preloads starting, file size is no longer an unknown.
Granted, Xbox One file size has already been revealed to be at 30GB, but PlayStation 4 players will have to download as much as 15GB more than the green team believers.
In fact, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time weighs in at 45GB, which requires an initial 15GB download to be playable and additional 30GB for the full package.
As pointed out by ResetEra users, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy clocked in at 23GB. Toys for Bob's remaster Spyro Reignited Trilogy came in at 36GB, but Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time clearly trumps both.
As for the game itself, Activision and Toys for Bob insist that Crash fans should be delighted with what they see. "Expect a whole new set of platforming tricks like wall-running, rail grinding, and rope swinging to help you visit every nook, cranny, and secret spot. The result is a love letter to Crash fans by Crash fans", they wrote.
To top it all off, Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time comes with two modes - Modern and Retro, catering to the type of player suggested in the title. While there are no substantial differences in content between the modes, Modern should be a bit more forgiving than its Retro counterpart.
We've had some confusion over microtransactions in Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time, but Toys for Bob tweeted out an official explanation , clarifying that there will be none in the game. That said, we've heard a similar story before, only to have Activision add microtransactions a month later, so hopefully, they don't put the dev in a tight spot again.
