The Crash Bandicoot multiplayer spin-off Crash Team Rumble will be free-to-play this weekend as Activision confirms a Free Weekend promotion for the mainly online title on PS5, PS4. Anyone will be able to download and sample the game from Saturday, 12th August 2023 through to the Monday, and a selection of different characters will be available.
If you like what you play, all the XP and items you earn will carry over into the full experience. The game is actually on sale on the PS Store until 16th August 2023, discounted to £18.74 / $22.49 for the standard edition. Since launch, the game has been updated with a new map and character Ripper, and it received a time-limited mode in Zap Trap.
In our Crash Team Rumble PS5 review, we praised its online matches, selection of characters, and solid game mode to land on a 7/10 rating. "Addictive just enough to look past the lack of local play and potentially long load times, Crash Team Rumble is worth trying — even if you wish Crash would just stick to what he's known best for: platforming."
