Today Activision and Vicarious visions released quite the treat for their Crash Bandicoot remaster Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy.
A previously unreleased level, titled “Stormy Ascent” is available for free for a limited time until August 19th (after that, it’ll cost $2.99). The level, that was never finished by Naughty Dog, is four times as long as any other level of the original game, and will challenge even the most hardcore fans.
Once downloaded (you can find it here), you’ll be able to play it through the first game of the trilogy on your PS4.
The level was insanely difficult, so much that a Vicarious Visions developer took 60 lives to finish it on his first playthorugh. It was so challenging, that Naughty Dog decided to cut it just before delivering the gold disk to Sony.
Yet the folks at Vicarious Visions fell in love with it, and decided to finish it, finally bringing it to life.
Interestingly, the url on the PlayStation Store mentions “CRASHNSANELEVEL1.” Could there be more “Insane levels” coming?
