Crash Team Rumble Launches In June, Closed Beta Test Announced
Crash Team Rumble is coming later this year where Toys for Bob will send Crash Bandicoot into a new stratosphere, Activision and Toys For Bob confirm. Crash Team Rumble is launching on June 20, with a closed beta happening from April 20-24.
The Crash Team Rumble closed beta includes five heroes and villains from the Crash universe and three unique arenas. For those who are invited into the beta, Crash Bandicoot, Coco, Tawna, Neo Cortex and Dingodile will be available, with each character able to use unique equipable powers and special moves and abilities to win.
Furthermore, the closed beta allows squads to pick from a serie of maps — each varying in size, layout, challenges and Relic Stations that unlock unique powers to give teams the upper hand against their opponents.
“We’re incredibly excited for fans to get an early hands-on with Crash Team Rumble during April’s Closed Beta,” said Paul Yan, Co-Studio Head at Toys For Bob. “We truly value the community’s feedback and will use this input to fine-tune the game for an amazing player experience on launch day. See you in the Closed Beta!”
Fans will choose from playing as either a Blocker, Booster, or Scorer. Teams will then use their role to strategize and work together to bank the most Wumpa fruit in their drop-off zone while also defending against opponents.
Toys for Bob also confirmed cross-platform will be available at launch.
Crash Team Rumblewill be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series, and Xbox One for $39.99 CAD for the Standard Edition, with the Deluxe Edition retailing for $49.99 CAD.
