Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gets new a brand new level, HDR support, and loading improvements in free PlayStation 4 update.

In an update on the PlayStation blog, Vicarious Visions producer Kyle Martin has confirmed some new additions to the massively popular Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.

The headline item is the release of Future Tense, a brand-new Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped level. Martin says the level – which is completely free – includes a bonus area, death route, and platinum relic. Last year’s Stormy Ascent DLC level is also now available free of charge to all PS4 players.

Speaking about Future Tense, Martin adds:

“Future Tense combines the old with the new. While the focus was to design a brand-new level, we still wanted to give the hardcore Crash Bandicoot fans that are versed in development lore something they could recognize, so we paid homage to the Crash Bandicoot cut Waterfall level in a few ways.”

Under the hood, the game is also getting improved load times. Martin explains that the game uses new Nitro loading technology to “start loading level content into memory predictively while you play, in addition to dynamically keeping the most frequently used asset in memory.”

And finally, HDR support as added on both PlayStation 4 and PS4 Pro. It will be automatically enabled if your TV and console supports the feature. The Xbox One version for the game that launch this week also includes the same updates.

The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy update is available right now.
