Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is getting a slew of new content. The new content starts rolling out today, 26 March 2020. The players will be able to enjoy a bonus "Beenox Pack", a bunch of new challenges and time trials.

All of the Grand Prix seasons have come to an end but there's still a bunch of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled to savour. There's a fresh bonus content pack as well as new challenges around the corner and it will all start rolling in on 26 March at 3 p.m. GMT.

A Bonus "Beenox Pack"

You'll want to download the update that's live now and with it, unlock:

  • Geary, the robotic clean freak (if not already unlocked)
  • Crunch, part cyborg, part Bandicoot (if not already unlocked)
  • Beenox-themed skins for Crash, Cortex and Crunch. The first-ever Legendary skin for Geary
  • A Beenox-themed kart
  • A Beenox-themed paint job
  • A Beenox-themed sticker
  • A set of Beenox-themed wheels

Grand Prix, Ghosts, and Golden Wumpas: The Challenges continue

Wumpa Challenges: Grand Prix-style challenges with the Wumpa Challenge system. Daily, weekly, and monthly rotating challenges will test your skills in different ways and you have Wumpa Coins to look forward to as your reward. 

Ghost Hunt: With Wumpa Challenges, the "Ghost Hunt" challenge type returns, specifically for the Nina’s Nightmare track. You'll need to disturb a ghost's final resting place, catch up with it to capture it and then go on to complete Wumpa challenges.

Golden Wumpa Hunt: Load up any course, then take off and try to catch the Golden Wumpa Fruit. The fruit will be hiding in glowing crates. Follow the glow and smash through the crates to collect the Golden Wumpa Fruit. Your efforts will be rewarded with a stash of Wumpa Coins.

Time Trials

Beating Beenox: New ghost times have been added to the Time Trial mode. These represent the fastest times from Beenox’s development team. Beating the new ghost times will get you a special set of Legendary Wheels.

Obtaining the Champion Kart: Now that the Grand Prix is over you can still unlock the epic Champion Kart by taking on the Oxide and Velo Time Trials.

Oxide’s and Velo’s Time Trials: If you beat all of Oxide’s times, expect to obtain the Champion Kart, along with a special new Signature Decal. If you complete all of Velo’s times, you unlock another special new Signature Decal for the Champion Kart.

New Pit Stop Content

  • Three new characters including the Lab Assistant, Baby Cortex and Baby N. Tropy.
  • Two new karts, both of which are customizable; the Neon Hawk aeroplane kart and the Nitro GT kart.
  • An assortment of new Legendary Skins.
  • An assortment of new colour variations for existing Legendary Skins.
  • An assortment of customization items for karts.

Changes to the Pit Stop

Items from each of the previous Grand Prix seasons are set to reappear in the Pit Stop. There will also be a new button prompt in the Pit Stop that will allow you to refresh the Pit Stop contents twice daily.

A New and Improved Rilla Roo

Players who have unlocked Rilla Roo will get a new "Fixed" version of the gorilla-kangaroo hybrid. You can still keep the old version of Rilla Roo so the "Fixed" one is more a bonus character.

The “Fixed” Rilla Roo will also appear in the Pit Stop for players who haven’t unlocked him yet.

The "Iron Checkpoint Crate" is coming to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled - as an actual playable character that can be unlocked if you find and break the Beenox crate in each track.

More changes

Players who win Cup Races on all three difficulties will have some new Paint Jobs waiting for them at the finish line.

A new audio feature is also available. You can now listen to the soundtrack for each track via the Options Menu when you’re not racing.

Online Leaderboards 

The in-game Online Highscores will be reset with this week's update. This is due to some bugs that have caused some invalid times to rise to the top of the list.
