Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Activision and Vicarious Visions announced a free new “Stormy Ascent” stage for the original Crash Bandicoot in Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy during its “Crash Bandicoot: Then and Now” panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.

The stage, which is available starting today and free for the next 30 days (it will cost $2.99 afterwards), was designed by the original Crash Bandicoot development team at Naughty Dog, but not included in the final game.

Activision also made a slew of other Crash Bandicoot-related announcements, including a new emoji app and Loot Crate, hardcover art book from Dark Horse Comics, and more.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is available now for PlayStation 4.
