Gamers can play one of this year’s biggest games completely free – hurry or you’ll miss out


THERE is a new offer this weekend that will allow gamers to play one of this year’s biggest releases.

People will be able to play as much as they want, giving a huge boost to the player base.

Crash Team Rumble is a face paced platform-style MOBA.

Crash Team Rumble was released in June this year, and is a different take on the series.

Instead of your usual platforming action, Crash and friends compete in a 4v4 MOBA-style arena.

You play as either a blocker, who takes out the other team, a booster who collects weapons and upgrades, or a scorer who collects as much Wumpa fruit as possible.

The aim is to collect 2k Wumpa fruit before the other team does, but all of your team will need to work together in order to win.

MOBAs such as Pokémon Unite are usually free-to-play, which is why people were surprised that the base game costs £30.

Like most live-service games, it still has microtransactions for a Battle Pass and upgrades, so people were hesitant to dive in.

However, the new offer gives everyone a chance to give it a try, with unlimited play with experienced players.

The free trial is available to both Xbox and PlayStation, and there will be cross-play between both platforms.

If you decide to take the plunge and pick it up, you will also be able to carry across your progress.

The free trial only lasts for one weekend, but all content in the game will be available to unlock.

Anyone will be able to play from Friday, August 11, 2023, until Monday, August 14, 2023, after which the trial will end.

Crash Team Rumble, like games such as Fortnite, has different events across seasons.

Season 2 will begin shortly, and the development team has promised extra modes which players have been asking for.
