Since its launch in June 2019, Beenox and Activision have continued to add new content to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled through free updates.
The newest free DLC follows the tradition of these updates, bringing in new rewards and unlockables along a progression bar, a new car, new character and car customisation options, new challenges, a new course, and a new character.
In Rustland Grand Prix, CTR takes players to a rusty and violent world akin to that of Mad Max: Fury Road, with Tiny’s new gear – which sees the Tasmanian tiger don a skull-mask and a guitar – and the opening line “What A Lovely Day For A Grand Prix” showing that the movie has certainly influenced the designers.
New CTR DLC: Rustland Grand Prix
The most notable new addition to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled in the Rustland Grand Prix is a new character, Mega-Mix.
Mega-Mix is a ghastly creature that hails from the 2002 game Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure. The hybrid monster is made-up of the features of four of Crash’s greatest enemies: Dr Neo Cortex, Dingodile, Tiny Tiger, and N. Gin.
As well as Mega-Mix, the free DLC brings in the new racetrack Megamix Mania, 18 new items to unlock, and a champion kart. Crash, Coco, Polar, Pura, N. Gin, Cortex, Dingodile, and Tiny Tiger all have new unlockable skins in the theme of the Rustland environment.
As you would assume, new paint jobs, stickers, kart sets, and wheels are also coming along in the Rustland Grand Prix.
Continued backing for Crash Team Racing
Players of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled have certainly enjoyed the continued updates and events for the CTR remake title. Back N. Time, the Twilight Tour, Spyro & Friends, Neon Circus, the Spooky Grand Prix, and the Winter Festival have all added a great amount of new content.
Of course, the DLCs don’t excuse the post-launch release of a microtransactions store – causing a revelation among players as to why earning in-game currency was such a grind beforehand – but the immediately free elements like the racetracks and challenges do help to keep the CTR Nitro-Fueled fresh and exciting.
The latest Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled event, the Rustland Grand Prix, runs from 16 January to 16 February and looks to be a fine addition to the ever-growing list of racetracks and characters.
