Crash Team Racing NF

Activision and Beenox have just announced that the next Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix will take place from 2nd to 25th August: it will be titled Back N. Time and will bring players into the prehistoric era! For the occasion, the title will be enriched with new content, challenges and events, as usual in a total freeway.

To begin with, a brand new track will be introduced, Prehistoric Playground: by taking more than one historical license, it will immerse the pilots in a setting populated by dinosaurs with flora of Jurassic origin, caves with painted murals and geysers that snort from the underground. By completing the challenges and accumulating Nitro Points, players will be able to unlock a total of 18 new items, including the Nostalginator and Mammoth karts, the Dashing skin for Fake Crash and the Cave Painting stickers. Those who complete the Bronze Tier unlock a new character, Baby TThe Gold Tier award is instead represented by its “Fake” skin.

The Pit Stop will also be renewed with lots of new characters, karts, skins and customization items. Among the many, the new Baby Crash and Baby Coco drivers, the Probulot 2000 kart coming directly from Crash Tag Team Racing and the new Mad Scientist Crash, Sabertooth Pura and Stone Age N. Trophy skins stand out. The August update will also mark the debut of microtransactions in the Pit Stop, which will allow players to purchase Wumpa Coins with real money. Package prices have not yet been revealed. The developers, in any case, have promised that this opportunity will in no way affect the progression and game mechanics, being completely optional.
