Activision and developer Toys for Bob have revealed that players will not need the Crash Team Rumble Battle Pass to unlock new heroes or powers. Furthermore, the Battle Pass will only contain cosmetic items, and unlocking new characters will be earned through in-game challenges.
Crash Team Rumble closed beta arrives in late April
The Standard Edition for the game will include access to the Season 1 Premium Battle Pass, while the Deluxe Edition will grant access to the Premium Battle Pass for both Season 1 and 2. Toys for Bob plans each season to last three months and to include a new 100-tier Battle Pass. Every season will feature unique events, new modes, and new maps.
Pre-ordering either edition of the game will give players access to the closed beta, which will be available on PS5 and PS4 from April 20-24. The beta will test hero balance, cross-progression, and cross-platform matchmaking across Xbox and PlayStation platforms. New players will be matched with other new players so that they can learn the basics at their pace.
In January, Toys for Bob seemed to tease Spyro 4 on Twitter, marking the first time we had even a hint of the new Spyro game from an official source.
