“Stormy Ascent” and All-New “Future Tense” Levels Available as Bonus Content in Trilogy at No Additional Charge
June 29, 2018 – Starting today, Crash Bandicoot™ fans and gamers can relive the ‘90s with the launch of Crash Bandicoot™ N. Sane Trilogy on Xbox One, Nintendo SwitchTM and PC via Steam. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy’s arrival to new platforms marks the first time that the original three games – Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped – will be playable on these platforms.
To celebrate launch day, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), is bringing Stormy Ascent and Future Tense to Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy at no additional charge. Stormy Ascent, the infamous, unfinished level from the original Crash Bandicoot game allows players to embark on a treacherous journey up the walls of a terrifying castle, on a stormy night filled with Crash’s fiercest enemies. In 2017, Stormy Ascent launched exclusively to the PlayStation® Store. Now, bandicoots on all platforms will be able to experience the fun of this remastered and notoriously difficult level designed to challenge the most hardened of Crash™ fans! Existing Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy owners on PlayStation®4 can download Stormy Ascent at no additional charge from the PlayStation Store.
The ‘coot core will also receive a brand-new level called Future Tense. Developed by Vicarious Visions, Future Tense brings an extra layer of difficulty to Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped’s Future world, as players dodge rockets, destroy robots and leap over lasers while ascending a massive futuristic skyscraper. Future Tense pays homage to the unreleased Waterfall level from the original Crash Bandicoot™ game. Future Tense is now available at no additional charge to all gamers on PS4TM, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
“Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was the number one‐selling remastered collection in PS4 history¹, and we’re excited to bring Crash in all his “Fur-K” glory to all major platforms today,” said Steve Young, Chief Revenue Officer at Activision. “Crash has bridged gaps between generations, and we’re honoured to continue his legacy by giving fans the opportunity to experience the fun of the remastered trilogy across multiple platforms.”
