A brand-new Crash Team Racing update has arrived and it's got an absolute boatload of new content for players to explore.

Activision wants to thank the game's dedicated fans, and that's why they're giving away a bonus "Beenox Pack". This new pack will unlock Geary and Crunch (if you haven't already unlocked them, that is). It also includes Beenox-themed skins for Crash, Cortex, and Crunch. Furthermore, Geary is getting his first legendary skin!

That's not all, though! The Beenox Pack also includes:

  • A Beenox-themed kart
  • A Beenox-themed paint job
  • A Beenox-themed sticker
  • A set of Beenox-themed wheels

What Else Has Arrived in the Crash Team Racing Update?

This Crash Team Racing update is also bringing with it the all-new Wumpa Challenge system. Rotating challenges will be offered on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis, providing players with Wumpa Coins as a reward so that they can unlock some more of the game's content.

As part of these challenges, the "Ghost Hunt" challenge type is making its return on the Nina's Nightmare track. Bust open a crate and catch up to the ghost to complete this devious challenge! The more crates you break, the more ghosts there are to catch and the more challenges you can complete!

Also adding to your earning potential is the fact that Golden Wumpa Hunt is sticking around. If you can manage to catch the Golden Wumpa Fruit, you'll be rewarded with a sweet stash of Wumpa Coins!

The final big point is some cool new Time Trials being added to the game. Beenox has broken out its very best players to set ghost times on the Time Trial Mode. Beat them and you'll score a sweet set of Legendary Wheels (and some bragging rights, too)!

These are far from the only changes coming to the game — you can read the full Crash Team Racing update blog post for all the details. If you don't yet already own the game, you can pick up Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled on the PlayStation Store for $39.99 or your regional equivalent.
