Crash Team Rumble gameplay footage has leaked online following a preview event organized by Activision and Toys for Bob to reveal the beta and release date for the new MOBA-style game. After months of leaks and speculations about the next Crash Bandicoot game, Crash Team Rumble was first shown at The Game Awards in December 2022. The reported game had been known as Crash Wumpa League up to the actual release, according to the leaks, which rather properly defined the impending title as a multiplayer party game.
Gameplay footage of Crash Team Rumble has leaked, and it’s about what we expected. Two teams compete to be the first to grab 2,000 wumpa fruit in the viral video, with players spinning dash their way to the highest scores.
A 30-second footage of Crash Team Rumble gameplay has been posted online. The video shows the final seconds of a game in which Crash, who is being controlled by the player, scrambles to gather Wumpa fruits while dodging a pursuing Dingodile and what appears to be an enemy-activated Nitrous Oxide UFO that flies around the battlefield blasting allied players with its laser beam.
The arena also has a second Dingodile, an antagonist Tawna Bandicoot, and other characters including Coco Bandicoot and Neo Cortex. Although further gameplay footage has also been leaked by Canadian YouTuber Guy Eh, who has also promised to do a thorough analysis video, it looks like IGN Italy was the initial source of the leak.
The footage also shows a few of the seemingly character-specific abilities players may employ to prevent attackers from taking their wumpa. The clip has cameos from Crash, Coco, Cortex, and Dingodile, as well as all the other well-known characters you may expect to see.
Fans of the Crash Bandicoot series appear to be divided after the leaked gameplay footage. While they had hoped for a second mainline episode, some people have expressed joy while others are less enthusiastic. Others contend that Crash Team Rumble shouldn’t cost $29.99, but rather should be available for free like the majority of MOBA-style games.
Whatever the case, Crash Team Rumble will be available in June 2023, and pre-ordering will give players access to the closed beta, which will run from April 20 to April 24, 2023. Moreover, a Deluxe Edition featuring 25-tier quick unlocks for Season One is now for pre-order. It includes all the materials from the Standard Edition as well as Premium Battle Passes for the first two seasons.
On June 20, 2023, Crash Team Rumble will be made available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. So are you excited about the game? Do tell us in the comment section below.
