Crash Team Racing update 1.08 is now rolling out for PlayStation 4 players. According to Crash Team Racing 1.08 changelog, the new update comes with Back N. Time Grand Prix with new changes and fixes. Apart from this, CTR update 1.08 also includes performance and stability improvements.
Previously, an update was released with improvement for Loading time, track selection frequency adjustment, various track lap exploits and more. Unfortunately, since the last patch, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Crash Team Racing patch 1.08 is expected to fix all these issues. Check out more details below.
Behold the wonder of Prehistoric Playground! The new track for the Back N. Time Grand Prix will immerse racers in an epic world with Jurassic-sized flora, violent geysers bursting from the ground, caves with mysterious wall-paintings, and of course, giant dinosaurs roaming the land. There are also some other, strangely familiar, characters throughout – let’s just say that Fake Crash would feel very comfortable in this Prehistoric world home to an ancient tribe that bears a striking resemblance….
Ramp yourself off a “Fake” Diplodocus’ tail, launch into the air with one of the violent geysers, get ahead with one of the track’s shortcuts – be ready for a dynamic new racing experience with Prehistoric Playground!
Earn your way to Stone Aged rewards
The Back N. Time Grand Prix will bring a whole new suite of rewards that players can earn by completing challenges and filling their Nitro Gauge. New items include the Nostalginator and Mammoth Karts, the “Dashing” Fake Crash skin, and Cave Painting stickers. Baby T. will also make his debut in CTR as a Grand Prix reward character for completing the Bronze Tier of the Nitro Gauge, with a “Fake” Baby T. skin being the final item in the Gold Tier.
With 18 new items to earn through your Nitro Gauge, be ready to complete those challenges and earn those Nitro Points*.
New Characters, Karts, and Styles in the Pit Stop*
And if that wasn’t enough, the Pit Stop will be filled with new characters, karts, skins, and kart customization items for players to unlock and show off a whole new style. Highlighting the additions are a couple of adorable, tiny versions of Crash and Coco. There has been a rift in the space-time continuum on the journey back in time, bringing infant versions of Crash and Coco to the Stone Age! Don’t let the pacifiers fool you, though… Baby Crash and Coco are ready to wreak some havoc on the racetrack!
It’s true that we’re going Back N. Time during this Grand Prix season, but we can’t do so without bringing some futuristic flair. During this Grand Prix, players will be able to unlock the Probulot 2000 in the Pit Stop, the beloved kart from Crash™ Tag Team Racing.
New skins, like Mad Scientist Crash, Sabertooth Pura, and Stone Age N. Tropy (to name a few) will be making their way to the Pit Stop so that players will be able to give some of their favorite characters a fresh look. There will also be ways to intimidate the competition all around the track with new kart customization items like the flame-flaring Lava Rock Wheels.
New Challenges for a historic season
Now that you know more about the new items and rewards coming with the Back N. Time Grand Prix, let’s talk about the challenges players will take part in to earn Nitro Points and fill up their Nitro Gauges.
In this Grand Prix, the Quick, Daily, Weekly, Themed, and Pro challenge sets will return, with many of the same challenges that fans remember from the Nitro Tour Grand Prix. There will also be new challenges scattered throughout for players to face. There will be more straightforward new challenges like Power Slide Master where players have to power slide for a certain duration of time. There are also new challenges that will test players’ mettle, like Backward Compatible, where the player must complete a lap with the reverse camera on the entire time.
Climbing up the Back N. Time Leaderboards
Finally, get ready to climb back up those leaderboards! Both the Championship and Nitro Leaderboards will be back and refreshed in the Back N. Time Grand Prix. As a quick reminder the Championship Leaderboard tracks players’ performance in the Grand Prix season via a points-based system. The Nitro Leaderboard tracks total Nitro Points earned during the Grand Prix season.
