Since its launch last year, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has offered swathes of new content to players via its many Grand Prix events – which rewards the best racers with various skins and customization items. Fans of the mode, however, will soon have to make do without it.
Beenox and Activision have announced that the game’s next Grand Prix will be its last one ever. After this, the game will offer a new Challenge System instead – where players can take on Daily, Weekly, and Monthly tasks to earn Wumpa Coins and purchase items from the Pit Stop. The Pit Stop itself will offer items and skins from previous Grand Prix events – which players can refresh twice daily to view new stock.
In addition to this, Beenox promised players that new customization items and skins will still make their way to the game in the future.
We’ll report back when we learn the exact date of this final Grand Prix. In the meantime, here are some highlights from Beenox’s update below:
Over the past eight months, we have been incredibly proud of our seasonal offerings and we feel our next Grand Prix will be one of the best yet. Beenox is known for going out with a bang, and with the next Grand Prix on the horizon we announce that it will be the last official Grand Prix for CTR Nitro-Fueled. It’s absolutely a bittersweet thing for us to announce that the next Grand Prix will be the last, but at the same time we want players to know that the race isn’t over.
Through the Grand Prix, we’ve delivered fresh, new content to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. Our community has raced through the multitude of new tracks and challenges with each season and have amassed an amazing collection of new characters and skins and shown their style in insane new ways by customizing all their karts.
The race continues as soon as the final Grand Prix ends, with a brand new challenge system. This system gives any driver the opportunity to master challenges, earn Wumpa coins, and further customize their experience with items in the Pit Stop. There will be challenges relevant to all game modes, so players can race and play CTR Nitro-Fueled the way they enjoy most.
Three challenge types will remain active: Daily, Weekly, and Pro (Monthly). Completing challenges will give players varying amounts of Wumpa Coins that they can use in the Pit Stop.
The Pit Stop will feature items from each Grand Prix season. Players will be able to view a variety of items by refreshing the Pit Stop screen up to 2 times per day, to give them more daily options to choose from when customizing their CTR Nitro-Fueled experience.
Beat Beenox with new Time Trials
Oxide is no longer the king of the track – – going live after the final Grand Prix there will be a set of Time Trial records that will be a challenge for even the best CTR racers to beat! These track times will be based on some of the best times achieved by the Beenox team on each individual track. So the challenge is posed for the best racers out there – – can you beatus? By doing so on all tracks, you can unlock a special reward that will let others know you’ve got some serious CTR skills!
