Gameplay of upcoming MOBA Crash Team Rumble has leaked

Toys for Bob’s upcoming Crash Bandicoot MOBA, Crash Team Rumble, has already fallen victim to a gameplay leak showing its chaotic gameplay ahead of its planned June release.

The details:

  • The video appears to have come from IGN Italy and depicts the final moments of an ongoing match in which the player controls the titular character, Crash. Most of the game's basic mechanics are shown off in the leaked clip, including attacks, movement, abilities, and the collection of Wumpa Fruit, which teams must collect to win. Playable characters from previous entries in the franchise, such as Cortex, Coco, and Dingodile, are also seen, each with their own animations and abilities, some of which are visible in the video.
  • The footage appears to be from a playtest, as there has been very little information about the title up until this point, even though its expected release date is only three months away. According to @Wario64 on Twitter, fans who preorder will have access to a closed beta between April 20 and 24, which will most likely look similar to the build shown in the video. Unlike other popular MOBAs such as League of Legends, Dota 2, and even 2021's Pokemon Unite, the game will not be free to play, instead costing $29.99 or $39.99 for the deluxe edition. It's also worth noting that it will use a live service model, with a battle pass, similar to most current AAA multiplayer games.
  • This will be Toys for Bob's second Crash game since taking over the franchise from former developer Vicarious Vision (now Blizzard Albany). Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time received universal acclaim, with fans and critics praising the game for adding new twists to a traditional formula while praising tight platforming controls and visuals, though many questioned the quality of its level design. According to comments on forums such as ResetEra and Twitter, fans are either mostly excited about the title or extremely skeptical, with some claiming that the snippet doesn't do it justice and looks rather boring.
