Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will finally be hitting Xbox One next week. To keep players going once they've mastered the original tracks, developer Beenox has revealed free seasonal content they'll be adding to the game at the start of July. The first Grand Prix will add new tracks, new karts, a variety of customisation items, and new playable characters such as Spyro. Chick and Stew are here to tell you all about it:
The Grand Prix events, or seasons if you prefer, test players with a series of challenges on a new track, such as top speed, power slide, and reverse challenges. They'll earn Nitro and Wumpa Coins for being successful, and as the Nitro gauge is filled up, they'll unlock rewards like racers, vehicles, and customisation items. While the Grand Prix events are running, players will be able to find other characters, kart sets, wheels, paint jobs, decals, stickers, and skins in the Pit Stop, where they can be purchased with those Wumpa Coins earned in the challenges.
The Nitro Tour Grand Prix begins on July 3rd and will introduce the Twilight Tour track. The track is a reimagined version of the Ancient Egypt and Arabian Town levels from Crash Bandicoot: Warped. New racers will include Tawna the Bandicoot, who comes with a new Motorsport Tawna skin, and can be unlocked as one of the seasonal rewards. Ami, Isabella, Megumi, and Liz, the other members of the Nitro Squad, will be available in the Pit Stop along with their accompanying motorsport skins. The Le Chaux kart will return from Crash Tag Team Racing, as well as new kart parts and "international-themed items for players to show their national pride".
The Grand Prix road map shows future content, including a Spyro Grand Prix and a Back N' Time Grand Prix. The latter will be centred around the Prehistoric Playground track and include Baby characters Baby T., Baby Crash, and Baby Coco as collectible racers. Neither of these Grand Prix seasons have release dates, and their content is subject to change as always. As soon as we hear more, we'll let you know.
We've got the full list of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
