Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled’s Microtransactions Arrive in August
Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled will add microtransactions next month that will allow players to buy in-game currency that’s used to purchase skins, characters, karts, and customization items in the game’s store, the Pit Stop.
“Starting in early August, players will have the option to purchase Wumpa Coin bundles from their game console stores to supplement the Coins they earn by playing,” Activision said in a blog post that detailed an upcoming free racing event. “This option won’t change the game’s core mechanics – players will still earn Wumpa Coins by playing the game in any mode, just as before. They will just able to purchase additional coins if they choose.”
Given Activision’s history of including microtransactions in many of its major multiplayer releases (such as Destiny 2), in-game purchases being added to the Crash Team Racing remake isn’t all that surprising.
