Update: Toys for Bob has clarified that the game doesn't have microtransactions:
"We're seeing confusion about #MTX in @CrashBandicoot 4 and want to be ???? clear: There are NO MICROTRANSACTIONS in #Crash4. As a bonus, the Totally Tubular skins are included in all digital versions of the game."
The statement makes it sound the free skins are to blame for the label, so it might have been kindness that lead to the confusion.
Original: During a recent interview we had with developer Toys for Bob, we learned that the game is going to be mixing old elements with new ones and that there will be new masks, playable characters and abilities (you can check the details out here). But that's not all.
In a report via PlayStation Store we found out that there would be "offline multiplayer" in Crash Bandicoot 4. Now, even more information has emerged.
If you check the page for the game on Microsoft Store, you would see a small tag under the blue "pre-order" button; "+ Offers in-app purchases", which indicates that Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time actually features microtransactions.
What do you think these in-game purchases could be for? Maybe more skins or outfits options?
Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 2.
