Celebrate Crash Commando this Week with New Add-On Content and Free Patch!

Hey, Crash Commando fans! This week we’re launching a bunch of new stuff for Crash Commando including a patch, new characters and a new map pack. Here to talk about it is John McLaughlin from Xdev Studio Europe. Keep an eye out for the patch and DLC, launching this Thursday with the PlayStation Store update.

Attention, Commandos :o)

First of all I’d like to thank the Crash Commando community who are still out there kicking my butt when I manage to find the time to grab a quick game.

I’m pleased to announce that on August 27 we will be releasing a new patch and some new content that I’m sure you will all love.

We are always looking for feedback and listening to what you guys are saying about Crash Commando. We’ve been taking your comments on board and will be releasing a patch with the following improvements:

  • Rebalanced primary weapons
  • Portraits of the characters on the standing screen
  • Access to the online store within the game
  • Specific invert axis option for the turret gun
  • Improved sound output levels
  • Taunt animation when standing still added for original characters
  • Improved BOT AI

As well as that we have a bunch of cool new downloadable add-ons for you.

First of all there are the New Recruits, 6 new characters for you to choose from. Each package comes with 2 characters that have a ton of attitude and plenty to say for themselves.

Colonel Chaos & Army Chick

Get to der choppaaaa with these two characters. The Colonel is a beefy guy so you best watch out for his lederhosen, and Army Chick may look cute but she packs a mean array of weaponry.

Nukem Ninja & Maid Mayhem

Who’d have thought Ninjas would be so good with Rocket Launchers?? Well the Ninjas in Crash Commando are….As for our resident French maid…..all I will say if you have a moustache then you may be in line for a date ;o)

Gangster Rapper & Reggae Rasta

Which is best – Rap or Reggae? Well these two guys like to argue with big guns rather than clever lyrics. Why don’t you help them win their argument!!!

We will also be releasing the Heist Map Pack. This contains 2 new large maps for you to wreak destruction on and the all new Heist game mode will test your crash Commando skills to the limit!!

Grab the bag of cash and get to the safe to deposit it. But beware, the bag is heavy and you won’t be able to use any weapons. You have to rely on your team mates for covering fire to keep your opponents away and see you win the day. If you buy this pack you also get to play Heist mode on all the standard maps too. And don’t forget, this pack will add a new bunch of Trophies for you to collect!!

That’s all from me. Remember, keep firing and keep feeding back – we love to read your comments on the game. Oh and do me a favour….next time I’m online, go easy on me :o)

The full game is out now for $9.99, and there is a demo to try it out before you buy. The new map pack will be available this Thursday for $2.99 (trailer below), and each of the three character packs will be available for $1.99. Or, you can pick up the maps and all of the new characters for a steal at $4.99.

Hey, Daimion, the Flickr links bring me to a Yahoo “private page” notice, telling me that I don’t have permissions to view the pics you’ve posted. Applying my Yahoo ID doesn’t resolve. Just an FYI!

Highly underrated, under-appreciated game.

August 25th, 9:32 am

cLOLe said:

August 25th, 9:33 am

Oh my god I love you guys. I’ve put more time into this game than I have any other game I own. My only regret is I wish there was more stuff for me to willingly hand over all my money for. I’ll pay for it all. Gimme gimme gimme gimme.

LOVE you guys, way to go on the stuff!

EPOS comes through BIG TIME, but uh, ONLY two maps? MORE please…

Rebalanced primary weapons? Uh oh?

LokeSTL said:

August 25th, 9:40 am

I bought this game looking for an inexpensive timewaster to grab a few trophies in. Boy was I suprised at how addictive and fun this game is. Glad to see this game get some support. Keep it coming!

jncasanova said:

I wonder how were primary weapons rebalanced, are they weaker or stronger now? I think it’s fine how they are right now.

Un-privatize the flickr pics… Have to create an account or sign in to view them.

Apparently you can’t even view them after you’ve signed up/in.

Ha sweet I love this game…can’t get the packs now though : (, hopefully by next week!!! Either way I’ll be online kicking butt.

Delriach said:

August 25th, 9:56 am

Is that 50 cent O______o?

Either way, this game is amazing and I’m glad that it’s getting more support.

GT-420 said:

August 25th, 10:22 am

REALLY need some new weapons too…. (flame thrower)


August 25th, 10:22 am

Tell Jeff to fix the mobile website I’m sick of not being able to watch the videos I’m especially tired of the blue lego that appears instead fun game though

cLOLe said:

August 25th, 10:33 am

The balancing of the weapons, I have a feeling it has to do with the sniper rifle, and the machine gun. Anyone that plays the game knows that anyone decent wielding a sniper rifle can COMPLETELY dominate a server. And anyone with the machine gun is probably a new kid that is going to die a lot.

Maybe the sniper rifle takes two shots to kill, and the machine gun is more accurate. I like the sniper rifle, so I’m a little nervous. But balance is good, we’ll see how it works out.

Falcon_VII said:

August 25th, 10:36 am

This game is so cool, I hope more people will grab it with the new content out. Wonder if the sniper has been balanced better.

MoneyMaker110 said:

August 25th, 10:47 am

i played this game alot when it first came out. i haven’t played it since i got my new tv, i went back to replay older games. i’ll pick it back up again to see if i can get into the flow of things.

GooieGreen said:

August 25th, 10:51 am

Great, I’m so glad you are hardening the hardcore and dividing the audience >,<

TheGuardianFID said:

August 25th, 11:33 am

I love this game, DLC=SOLD!!! :D

NeoHumpty said:

August 25th, 11:36 am

Yeah, I haven’t played for a while. Like some others on here, I’m wondering if they weakened the sniper rifle. Hoping not. I like that gun.

I got this fun game after the last patch (which had a bunch of great new features and updates, including adding Game Launching from Home) and am glad I did. I’ve been waiting to hear more about the DLC that was mentioned in the previous blog post and see that you’ve been working to make the game even better, too! I’m specifically glad to see the invert axis option for the turret gun and will be checking out the DLC.


August 25th, 1:13 pm

Two of my fav games get an update this week! FTW!?! Socom and Crash Commando, Thanks Everyone!

starBlinky01 said:

August 25th, 1:50 pm

why does gangster look like 50 cent? I hate 50 cent.. I will take pleasure in killing him in this game!!

Did you guys refine the graphics for the hud? Looks like it

PSWii2008 said:

August 25th, 1:53 pm

So do these new packs have more trophies, or is the fact that we have these new maps, characters, and modes enough of a reward?

chriscowboyd said:

August 25th, 3:26 pm

Does Crash Commando run in 1080p? If not, could you guys upscale it so it will play at that resolution.?

KwietStorm said:

August 25th, 3:40 pm

Nice job with the generic, token black characters. Great to see we are always represented well.

cLOLe said:

August 25th, 5:01 pm

#47: lol get off it, man. French Maids aren’t all filthy sluts looking to give it up to the nearest rocket up her tailpipe, but where are the tears for them?

His name is “gangster rapper”, do you know many white gangster rappers? I don’t. It’s a game for fun. Relax.


August 25th, 6:23 pm

Do these characters have certain attributes, if not, why even bother. A create a character would have been better.

Double0M said:

August 25th, 6:34 pm

Why haven’t i heard of this game before. Looks real fun.
