Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has enjoyed a steady stream of post-launch content in the form of Grand Prix seasonal events. It's an approach that's worked well for the kart racer, but with the last of these events now over, what's next for Crash and the gang? According to Activision and Beenox, there's plenty more to sink your teeth into.
A huge wave of new stuff is hitting the game very soon indeed, and it's all been unveiled over on the publisher's blog. Starting today, Beenox is adding in all sorts of stuff to keep players busy. A "Beenox Pack" will give everyone access to some developer-themed goodies, for starters, while special challenges from past Grand Prix events will remain. These include the daily and weekly challenges (earning you Wumpa Coins rather than Nitro Points), Ghost Hunt on the Nina's Nightmare track, and Golden Wumpa Hunt, which will appear on all tracks.
If you're a real pro, you'll also be interested to learn there are new Time Trials to conquer. New ghost times on each course let you take on the developer's own best times, while beating Oxide and Velo's times will now unlock the Champion Kart, previously only winnable via the Grand Prix.
The Pit Stop has had an overhaul, too. There's new content to be had, including new characters, karts, and cosmetics, and items previously available through Grand Prix events have been added to the rotation. This means you can finally nab those extra bits and pieces you missed out on. Plus, you're now able to manually rotate Pit Stop items twice a day, which is handy.
There's a little more to it, but these are the big new changes to Nitro-Fueled. It's a massive update, and you can download it right now -- patch 1.20 is ready to go on PlayStation 4. Are you still enjoying CTR? Boost into the comments below.
Geary finally gets a legendary skin, the lab assistant and Rilla Roo got fixed? Beenox really have gone above and beyond.
Getting new characters is always cool, I'll have a go at unlocking them.
Is online actually working now? Last time I played it (granted, months ago), the online was basically so broken that out of the 1% of games I could actually get into, it was people who had finished the race whilst I was still on the second corner of the first lap.
@nookie_egg Me and @ShogunRok were talking about this earlier. I wouldn't hold out much hope that the online has been improved, but it might be worth checking out.
Also there's a secret character to unlock by finding special Beenox crates on every track.
@Quintumply Will finish Astro Bot (holy hell I love this game) and Resogun and will get back to it and see. It's a shame that it was so bad, because I absolutely adored the original game and a version where I could play online is something I'd always wanted.
I really want to love this game, the racing is fantastic and visually is lovely but the grind and MTX really put a dark cloud over it all.
Is it still a massive grind or is it fun again?? If I can play for a few hours and actually unlock stuff I’m in - if it’s still sink all your time and maybe unlock one thing - I’m back out.
The Playstation Version Should Get Jak And Daxter As a Character
I love this game but I wish they'd do something about online and lobbies.
