New content from Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled drops today, March 26, including the bonus “Beenox Pack” that will be automatically unlocked for players as a thank you for their support through the Grand Prix seasons. All players will need to do for the “Beenox Pack” is download the new update.
Players are also invited to try new challenges, compete against best track times from the Beenox team, explore new content in the Pit Stop, unlock a secret “crate” character, and more. Beenox is putting its bumper sticker all over the bonus new content pack, with Beenox-themed skins, kart, paintjob, and wheels, and, for players who haven’t already unlocked them, an automatic unlock of popular characters Crunch and Geary. Geary will also be decked out in a legendary skin for the first time ever.
Players can now go head-to-head with the very best as they race against new ghost times in the Time Trial mode that represent the fastest laps completed by Beenox’s development team. The reward is a new set of Legendary Wheels.
For beating best times by Oxide and Velo, racers will be awarded new signature decals, along with a Champion Kart (if not already unlocked) for those who prevail across all of Oxide’s Time Trials. Players who have already beaten these times will have this content unlocked automatically.
At the Pit Stop, players will find three new characters, two new karts, a selection of new Legendary Skins, kart customization items, and more. Due to popular demand, Beenox is rewarding players with a new version of Rilla Roo, dubbed “Fixed Rilla Roo.” “Fixed Rilla Roo” will be in the Pit Stop rotation for players who haven’t unlocked him yet. Players who have unlocked the old version of Rilla Roo will automatically get “Fixed Rilla Roo” while being able to keep the old one.
Finally, items from each of the eight CTR Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix seasons will also reappear and rotate through the Pit Stop. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will also introduce a new audio experience. Players can now listen to each track’s soundtrack through the Options menu. The Grand Prix-style challenges will be replaced with Wumpa Challenges, via rotating daily, weekly, and monthly challenges that reward Wumpa Coins that players can use in the in-game Pit Stop. The “Ghost Hunt” challenge type will return to Nina’s Nightmare track, but the “Golden Wumpa” challenge will remain.
