# Crash Team Rumble Season 2 Introduces Exciting 4-Player Co-op Party Mode
Crash Team Rumble, the popular racing and platforming game, is back with Season 2, and this time it’s bringing the party! Starting from September 12, players can enjoy an all-new 4-player co-op Party Mode, adding a whole new level of fun and excitement to the game.
Party Mode in Crash Team Rumble invites players to team up with their friends and overcome diverse challenges while racing against the clock. This mode consists of five unique mini-game rounds, each with its own set of dangers and trials. To succeed, players must master each round, collect clocks to increase their time, and work together with their squad to unlock hidden boss waves.
In the Speed Run round, players will dash and leap through Tiki Towers, racing against the clock. Success in this round relies on precise jumps and tight platforming. As players clear each wave, obstacles are placed on the course, making completion more challenging. Teamwork is also crucial here, as players are connected by a tether that increases their speed. Staying close to your team will ensure faster progress.
Cooking enthusiasts will love the What’s Cookin’ round, where players must collect ingredients and throw them into a rotating pot. Each wave introduces new ingredients and recipes, requiring coordination among team members. The boss wave features a giant wumpa bat that players must defeat using dynamite sticks.
In the Get Lit round, players must gather candles and lanterns in a massive tower. The twist here is that each player has a floating candle above their head, which can be used to light lanterns strategically placed around the tower. Teamwork is essential in this round, as some lanterns require multiple players to light them. The boss wave in this round features a battle against dragons, where players must use their candles to light rockets and defeat the dragons before time runs out.
Archeology enthusiasts will find the Dig It round fascinating. Players must hunt for buried fossils using a bone detector, and then bring the uncovered bones to the center of the map to assemble a skeleton. Some bones are heavier and require multiple players to carry them. The boss wave in this round adds a lava pit to the mix, making it even more challenging.
The final round, Balloon Bounce, will be available to try this weekend and will unlock permanently later during Season 2. In this round, players must leap high into the sky and bounce across various balloons to score points. Each wave requires the team to focus on specific types of balloons. Players should avoid popping each other’s balloons and be careful not to miss a jump and fall back to the ground.
Crash Team Rumble Season 2 is already live, offering all rounds of Party Mode. But that’s not all! The season will feature new maps, a new power, and the addition of Ripto from the Spyro the Dragon Universe, providing players with even more exciting content.
So, gather your friends, sharpen your platforming skills, and get ready for an epic co-op adventure in Crash Team Rumble Season 2. Available now for Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, this game is set to deliver endless hours of racing and platforming fun.
