Crash Bandicoot’s Stormy Ascent Level Is Available for Free in the PlayStation Store

Crash Bandicoot Stormy Ascent

Not long ago, we were speculating on a list of Trophies for a mysterious batch of downloadable content for Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Well, it turns out, that DLC is the Stormy Ascent level from the original Crash Bandicoot. And it’s available right now.

The level is free from now until August 19, 2017. After that, it will cost $2.99.

Once you’ve downloaded the DLC, a new path will open up on your overworld map. You can warp directly to Stormy Ascent from the beginning of the game, or you can climb the castle on the final island to reach it naturally. Check out our video to see what we mean.

Stormy Ascent is aesthetically like Slippery Climb, only quite a bit more difficult. Before you hop into it, you’ll probably want to visit Castle Machinery and score some extra lives.

We’re not sure if this will be the final DLC for this game or if more is on the way, but we certainly hope it’s the latter. This game is fantastic.

You can see an official trailer for the DLC below.
