Notes from July 3 Update

 

Beenox is hard at work, making some adjustments and improvements to the game to provide the best ongoing kart racing experience possible, including addressing the save data issue on the PlayStation 4.

The update is set to go live on July 3*, along with the first Grand Prix**, the amazing Nitro Tour. Below are details of what will be included in the patch.

 

Save Data Corruption Issue

 

PlayStation 4 players, we have identified that your save data file has a chance to corrupt if the data for race ghosts in Time Trials becomes too large. This has impacted players who complete many Time Trial races.

We've been working to properly fix the issue and it will be addressed in this patch. In the meantime, we recommend that PS4 players avoid playing Time Trials as a preventative measure. This issue should not occur for Switch and Xbox One players. Alternatively, PS4 players have the option to backup save data on an external storage device or backup save data to the cloud as an extra precaution.

We are blown away by the community support for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, and to say thank you for your patience while we work on these adjustments, we will be providing a 2,500 Wumpa Coin gift to all players on all platforms if you play Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled between this weekend and July 4th.† Expect this bonus to go live within 24 hours.

We encourage our players to submit a support ticket if any issues or questions arise, because it helps us more quickly resolve issues impacting the community.
