The Crash Team Rumble Closed Beta is officially here – so what can you expect? Starting April 20 those who pre-ordered the game will gain access to a slice of the game, which officially launches on June 20, 2023.
In the Closed Beta, players will get to play as some of their favorite heroes and villains including Crash Bandicoot, Dingodile, Neo Cortex, Tawna, and Coco – plus more to come at launch. In addition, players will get to experience three of the maps, their relic stations, various character customizations, and more!
The team at Toys For Bob is excited for fans to finally get their hands on the game, get feedback, and see how players progress in the span of those four days. This beta is crucial to the development cycle and provides the team at Toys For Bob with the opportunity to ensure the best possible game at launch. “There will be lots more people playing Crash Team Rumble than there ever have been,” says Dan Neil, creative director at Toys For Bob, “and it’s going to give us a bunch of really important information about the game balance to allow us to fine-tune it as we move forward to launch.”
The crew at Toys For Bob have been hard at work creating an all-new type of Crash game which is also a “new, and weird, and it’s uncharted territory,” says Lou Studdert, associate creative director at Toys For Bob. “One of the things I love about the Crash franchise is how it swings from a core platforming experience to something new, but in multiplayer games like Crash Team Racing and Crash Bash, the platforming DNA was lost, and it was more about the characters in a new type of game. Crash Team Rumble brings the multiplayer fun while retaining the DNA of the skills you’ve built up by playing the franchise.”
Fans will get to test this out and get to experience all of the fun first-hand, and Toys For Bob will be eagerly waiting for their feedback and is excited to see what they have been working tirelessly on!
To access the Closed Beta on April 20, fans can pre-orderCrash Team Rumble now, then get ready to rumble with full game access on June 20, 2023.
