Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled free trial event for Switch Online members also available in Europe

Strap in, Europe

Whenever there's a free game trial for Switch Online members, we usually see it announced in Japan first, then Europe, and finally North America. This time around, things are going in reverse!

North America was the first region to announce the free trial of Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled for Switch Online members, and the opportunity is yet to be announced anywhere else. That said, we know it's being offered in Europe, as the official game page for Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled has a very tiny blurb for it. Looks like Nintendo of Europe will be announcing this on their social channels any minute now.

For those who missed the news yesterday, starting Dec. 30th, 2020 and running to Jan. 5th, 2021, Switch Online members will be able to play Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled in its entirety. This includes the online component as well! Once Jan. 5th, 2021 comes and goes, access to the game will be removed. There's usually a sale for the game during these trial events as well, so be on the lookout for that.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled devs say that there are no more content updates planned for the game

Crossing the finish line

If you've been hoping to see new content head to Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled, we've got some bad news. Developer Beenox has shared a message on Twitter confirming that the game is content complete. You can read their full message to fans below.

The Race Continues! Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Rolls Out Bonus Content and New Features Post-Grand Prix

The race is STILL on

The Gasmoxia Grand Prix has come to an end, but the race goes on! New content* from Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is available now, including the bonus ‘Beenox Pack’ of content that will be automatically unlocked for players as a thank you for their unwavering support through all of the Grand Prix seasons.

All players should have to do is download the update while their console is connected to the internet and the content will be available. Players are also invited to try their hands at new challenges, compete against best track times from the Beenox team, explore new content in the Pit Stop, unlock a secret ‘crate’ character and more.

Beenox is putting its bumper sticker all over the bonus new content pack, with Beenox-themed skins, kart, paintjob and wheels, and, for players who haven’t already unlocked them, an automatic unlock of popular characters Crunch and Geary (the latter will also be fully decked out in a legendary skin for the first time ever!). Players can now go head-to-head with the very best as they race against new ghost times in the Time Trial mode that represent the fastest laps completed by Beenox’s development team, with the reward being an amazing new set of Legendary Wheels. For beating best times by Oxide and Velo, racers will be awarded new signature decals, along with a Champion Kart (if not already unlocked) for those who prevail across all of Oxide’s Time Trials. Players who have already beaten these times will have this content unlocked automatically.

Perusing the Pit Stop, players will find three new characters, two new karts, a selection of new Legendary Skins, kart customization items and more. Due to popular demand, Beenox is rewarding players with a new version of Rilla Roo, dubbed “Fixed Rilla Roo”, who will be in the Pit Stop rotation for players who haven’t unlocked him yet. Players who have unlocked the old version of Rilla Roo will automatically get “Fixed Rilla Roo” while being able to keep the old one. Finally, items from each of the eight CTR Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix seasons will also reappear and rotate through the Pit Stop.

Recognized as the Best Sports/Racing Game at The Game Awards 2019 and Best Racing Game of 2019 by IGN, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled will also introduce a new audio experience, where players can listen to each track’s soundtrack through the Options menu. The beloved Grand Prix-style challenges will be replaced with Wumpa Challenges, via rotating daily, weekly and monthly challenges that reward Wumpa Coins that players can use in the in-game Pit Stop. The ‘Ghost Hunt’ challenge type will return to Nina’s Nightmare track, the ‘Golden Wumpa’ challenge will remain, and a host of other fur-tastic updates are slated to roll out on March 26.

For a full rundown on all the new post-Grand Prix content, head over to the Activision Games Blog.

The first rule of driving is to not crash

Bandicoots get ready to revel in Crash lore with the final Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Grand Prix season launching this week! Deciding earth is no longer of interest, the villainous Nitros Oxide has challenged Crash and team to one last epic battle on his home planet in the Gasmoxia Grand Prix!

During this toxic race to the finish, players will challenge each other on an epic new track high up in Gasmoxia’s atmosphere, where two rival fast-food conglomerates are battling it out for planet domination (and a CTR TV sponsorship). New skins, karts, an imperious new character to unlock and a new track to conquer, touted as the most technical track ever assembled in Crash Team Racing—players will have a wild ride in this Grand Prix season!

Existing at the fringes of space, it’s filled with twists, turns and risky shortcuts for the bold. The ever-present gaze of Gasmoxia’s corporate giants hangs over the heads of all racers as they strive to beat the track (and each other) and escape this toxic dystopia!
