In Crash Force, the player assumes the role of a hovercraft. A hovercraft's stats can be altered by applying Skills Tree points. In addition a hovercraft's appearance can be changed with the use of Skins, which can be bought in the Market. All hovercrafts have four abilities, a primary and a secondary weapon. Two of the abilities of each hovercraft are unique to their origin family (Aquila, Cicuma and Clava). Hovercrafts require energy to cast abilities and navigate through the map.

In Closed Beta, four hovercrafts will be available. Every two weeks a new hovercraft will be unlocked, before the release of Crash Force.
