Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Post-Launch Support Begins with Grand Prix
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled's first Grand Prix Season adds Tawna, the Trophy Girls, and more.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was released by Beenox and Activision on June 21, 2019. The game was met with critical praise, and the developers are keen on sticking to the game with post-launch support. On July 3, the first round of post-launch support will arrive, adding new characters, the first Grand Prix Season, and more. You can check out a trailer highlighting some of the updates below.
The game’s first Grand Prix Season runs from July 3 to July 28. During this time, there will be Grand Prix Challenges for players to complete in order to gain XP and unlock new rewards. This first Grand Prix Season does bring new karts, skins, and customization items to the game, but most notably it allows players to unlock new characters, including Tawna. She was Crash’s girlfriend in the first Crash Bandicoot game, and her addition to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled marks the first time she’s ever been playable in a racing game featuring Crash. The Nitro Squad, better known as the Trophy Girls in the original CTR for PS1, are also playable now.
Another major draw of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled’s first Grand Prix Season is the new Twilight Tour map. It is inspired by the Middle East and dynamically shift from day to night while players are racing on it. All of these additions are pretty hefty for being less than two weeks out from the game’s launch, but Beenox and Activision don’t plan on stopping here. The next season will introduce characters like Baby T. and Baby Crash, while the one after that will actually bring Spyro the Dragon, who saw his own remaster last year, into the mix. DualShockers will keep you updated as more details about those seasons come out.
Below, you can see some screenshots featuring the new characters and map. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is currently available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. If this free post-launch support is drawing you in, you can pick up the game right now on Amazon.
