In case you haven’t heard the news, Activision announced Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time this last Monday. While the title is mostly seen as a single-player game, it would appear that the PlayStation Store may have accidentally confirmed that there will be some form of Crash Bandicoot 4 multiplayer when it launches.
The store listing currently lists the game’s features, one of them being offline multiplayer with it being playable with up to four players. While surprising, this may hold some weight as the game does feature more than one playable character as seen in the reveal trailer.
Details from the PlayStation Store
*Available at launch.
Offline multiplayer (2-4 players)
Uses DUALSHOCK 4 vibration function
Enhanced gameplay on PS4 Pro console
Offline play enabled
There is also some mention of an online leaderboard and an Activision account being needed for it, though that could be a standard disclosure from Activision. Of course, take this with a grain of salt as it could very well be a mistake on the store listing. Still, is a Crash Bandicoot 4 multiplayer mode something players would want? Even if it is just local play co-op?
