Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time launched on PC last week, but as players found out when accessing the game through the Battle.net launcher, an always-online connection is required.
Ordinarily, this wouldn’t be too much of an issue as almost every game available on Battle.net requires being permanently tethered to the internet, but frequent login errors that forces the game to close during the middle of a challenging level have left players feeling frustrated.
Crash Bandicoot 4 is an entirely local game as well, with its only online component being multiplayer leaderboards. As Eurogamer originally reported as well, the game might not even remain playable on PC should Activision decide to shut down its servers.
