Get ready for the ultimate clash of heroes vs villains in Crash Team Rumble. Pick your side and power up with the most extraordinary character Crash Bandicoot introduced.

Introduction to Crash Team Rumble

Crash Team Rumble is a team-based battle game created by developer Toys For Bob and published by Activision. The game was officially announced at the 2022 Game Awards in December. It’s unique in that it features 4v4 team battles where various characters from the Crash universe team up to take on powerful opponents. The game offers players many customization options, from choosing character types and abilities to building their team as they see fit. There are plenty of playable characters to choose from, each with its unique skills and play style.


What is Crash Team Rumble?

Crash Team Rumble is a battle-royale-style game set in the Crash Bandicoot universe. Going where no Crash game has gone before, Team Rumble pits four against four as each team battles to be king (or queen) of Wumpa Island. The game features a variety of unique characters, each with its abilities and play styles. Choose from an eclectic mix of fan-favorite personalities like Cortex, Coco, Dingodile, Brio, Tawna, or even series protagonist Crash Bandicoot, as you team up with three other players to take on another team in online multiplayer mayhem.

Game Modes of Crash Team Rumble

Crash Team Rumble is an online multiplayer game where opposing teams must outwit and destroy each other to conquer the Island. It's not yet clear what the game modes will be. Some battle arena modes will pit four players against four other players. Teams will use drop-off zones to collect the most Wumpa fruits. It would be nice to see a free for all or duos mode included.

Strategies for Grabbing More Wumpa Fruit

Crash team rumble is a team-based game that you will play with and against other people. The game's objective is to beat the other team by whatever means. There are many different ways to accomplish this, but ultimately it will come down to using each character’s unique abilities to take down the opposition. Attacking the enemy into submission and stealing their fruit is a winning strategy. The best method for grabbing Wumpa fruit is going to be brute force.
