Get in the Holiday groove with Crash Team Racing’s Winter Festival


The Grand Prix DLC plan for Activision’s remake of Crash Team Racing is rolling on with a Winter Festival that adds new characters, karts and more.

Tis the season

Tis always the season to be jolly when it comes to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled. The kart racer burned up the console and PC circuit this year, with an excellent remake of the PSOne-era original.

Activision is carrying on the fun though, with a plan loaded with free DLC called Grand Prix. This new addition is just the latest in the line, and adds in winter-themed goodies. This is no toss away content either, as it’s pretty packed.

The content is available right now to add onto your base copy of Crash Team Racing.

All together, Winter Festival adds:

  • NEW TRACK: Dash through a holiday scene like no other in Gingerbread Joyride! From the warm, welcoming hues of the gingerbread village to the cool, idyllic scenery of the winter wonderland, this track is sure to fire up some cheer as you cruise past your competition!
  • NEW CHARACTERS: Rilla Roo and Yaya Panda enter the festivities, as well as a brand new character, Hasty – – a high-flying Moose based on an infamous cut character from CTR lore. But wait, this just in! Your favorite broadcasting duo Chick n Stew aren’t just sitting in the booth any longer – – they’ll also be clucking it up and down the track in this special Grand Prix season!
  • NEW KARTS: Plow through the competition with the Snowplower, leave other racers salivating with the Candy Cone, and finally take the reins in the ultimate holiday machine with the Nitro Sleigh!
  • PIT STOP ITEMS: A Reindeer Crash Skin, Pajama Skins for Baby Crash and Coco, scrumptious Pastry wheels, holiday-themed paint jobs and stickers – – there’s no shortage of new swag to celebrate the season! But wait until you see the skin to stand above them all – – Winter Guardian Spyro. 
  • NITRO-GAUGE CHALLENGES & REWARDS: Polar in an ugly sweater, Hasty in a slick ski-suit, and so much more, complete challenges to earn these and other new rewards in the Winter Festival Nitro Gauge.
  • CHAMPION KART AND DECAL: Finish in the top 5% of the Grand Prix leaderboards and win the Champion Kart and Winter Festival signature decal!
