Who's in your crew?
Today’s Disney Speedstorm Dev Diary is all about the crew system. Every successful racer has an amazing crew to support them and it’s no different in Disney Speedstorm. You can equip each of your racers with up to 4 crew members in our game to improve their stats and give you an edge over your rivals. There’s a bunch of Disney & Pixar crew members to collect when the game launches, so get ready to gather a stellar crew.
From Mushu & Cri-Kee, to Boo & Roz, there’s a whole host of Disney & Pixar crew members for players to unlock. You can unlock new crew members from reward boxes earned simply by progressing in the game. Equip them to the corresponding racers to help improve their stats.
Each racer can equip one crew members at star level 1, two at star level 3, three at star level 4, with the possibility to equip a maximum of 4 crew members at star level 5. Like racers, you can also use shards to increase the star level of your crew members to make them even more effective.
During the Closed Beta, crew members could improve different combinations of the following stats:
- Top Speed: Maximum speed of a racer.
- Acceleration: How fast a racer accelerates.
- Handling: How well a racer turns & drifts.
- Boost: How long a racer’s boost lasts.
- Combat: The duration of stun applied when hitting or being hit by rival racers.
At launch, some crew members will also enhance your racer’s unique and common skills, in one of two ways. The first enhancement will allow racers to begin a race with a common skill already equipped so you’ll be able to get an edge on your rivals right from the start line. The second enhancement will increase the overall power level of your racer’s unique skill or a common skill that they pick up during a race.
