SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CrashBandicoot–Crossing the finish line in Crash™ Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
doesn’t mean the Bandicoot has sung! Today, Activision Blizzard, Inc.
(NASDAQ: ATVI) and lead developer Beenox announced that for the first
time ever, purchasers of the remastered game will be able to take part
in free bonus seasonal content with its Grand Prix in-game offerings
post launch. Giving gamers another reason to play, the first Grand Prix
will kick off on July 3, 2019, and will include a new track for all
players, unlockable characters, karts and various customization items.

Today, in a first-look of CTR
TV
, hosts Chick and Stew revealed all the fun awaiting players in
the Grand Prix. They also revealed that fans will get a brand-new track
with each Grand Prix. The first track is called Twilight Tour,
which takes players on an epic journey by day and night through the
middle east. That’s not all, Chick and Stew also spilled the news that
Tawna will in fact be coming to the CTR universe, as an earnable
character in the first Grand Prix. There will be new items and
characters dropped into the game’s Pit Stop rotation each Grand Prix,
including members of the Nitro Squad in the first season (formerly known
as the Trophy Girls). These racers come from regions around the world
and are ready to represent their countries with speed and strength!
Chick and Stew also let fans know about the content they can expect in
the two following Grand Prix Seasons, including the most anticipated
event of the century…Spyro’s induction to CTR!

E3 (June 11-13), show attendees can test drive Crash Team Racing
Nitro-Fueled
. Passersby will be among the first in the world to race
on remastered Crash Team Racing tracks: Tiny’s Arena and Hot Air
Skyway and reimagined Crash™ Nitro Kart tracks: Jungle Boogie and
Thunderstruck.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled was designed to deliver fun in
unexpected and exciting ways. The Grand Prix does that by giving players
a reason to fall in love with the game over and over again,” said Thomas
Wilson, Co-Studio Head at Beenox. “Crash Team Racing was an
iconic game in the ‘90s that influenced how gamers played kart racer
games, and we’re thrilled to continue that tradition with Crash Team
Racing Nitro-Fueled
by introducing new content to players in ways
they haven’t imagined yet — the race definitely isn’t over once you
cross the finish line.”

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled features all the remastered
tracks, characters and modes from the original CTR game, and all the
reimagined tracks from the original CNK game — all playable in stunning
HD! In addition to this, with the in-game Pit Stop and the Grand Prix
