Crash's return to the world of video games has officially taken the world by storm, with Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy topping the worldwide sales charts for physical games in the month of June according to the NPD Group. What's even more impressive is that the game only launched on 30 June, meaning it racked up more sales in just one day than any other game on the market. For a remake of a trio of 20-year-old games, that's a serious accomplishment.

Crash Bandicoot Review

To celebrate this milestone, publisher Activision has released a special DLC level of the game, free for all players until 19 August. The level, Stormy Ascent, was originally developed for the first Crash Bandicoot game back in 1996, but it was never finished and thus never released. Now, players can experience the never-before-seen level by downloading it from the PlayStation Store and competing for the fastest completion time through the game's online leaderboard.

We were quite smitten with Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy in our review and the addition of this free DLC is a great reason to jump back into the game.
