Developer Beenox is really going all-in on Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, It's just revealed that the game will be getting seasonal content, complete with new characters, tracks, and cosmetic items. These seasonal events will be completely free.
A post on the official PlayStation Blog explains all: "What is a Grand Prix in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, exactly? Think of it as a themed season, constructed around a newly-themed track with a number of different challenges to undertake. Finish a challenge, and you’re awarded Nitro Points (think of Nitro Points like Experience Points). Complete more challenges to continue to fill that Nitro up. When you’ve filled Nitro up to certain levels in your Nitro Gauge, rewards are earned. Examples include new characters, karts, skins, and kart customization items."
Sounds kind of like a battle pass, we guess? The more you play, and the more challenges you complete, the more stuff you unlock, and each season brings new goodies.
What goodies, you ask? Well, Crash Bandicoot's love interest from the very first game, Tawna Bandicoot, will be arriving as a new playable character -- and she's brought friends. Remember the trophy-presenting girls from the original Crash Team Racing? They're along for the ride as well, and they've been renamed the Nitro Squad.
And, of course, as you've no doubt already noted based on the season roadmap, there's going to be a Spyro the Dragon crossover at some point in the future. We should have put money on this happening!
Clearly you're going to get some bang for your buck when Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled launches later this month on PlayStation 4. Are you looking forward to it? Rev your engines in the comments section below.
