Quickie: New Patch (The Game Awards Trophy Title Screen) for Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (PS4/XB1) is now rolling out

Looks like there’s a new patch up right now, clocking in around 2-3 GB for PlayStation 4 1.18 (also out for Xbox One). Here’s what the update does as far as we know:

  • Changes the trophy in the title screen to The Game Awards trophy for winning “Best Sports/Racing Game” of 2019
    • And yes, this has the fixed animations unlike the unfinished version shown by Geoff on Twitter
  • License and Privacy Policy Agreements have been updated for 2020, you have to now swift through 80+ pages of them (seriously?!)
  • Reportedly, the character podium themes for Rustland skins are fixed (Source)

Activision and Beenox have yet to officially comment on what other things the patch adds, changes or removes. In addition, we do not know why the patch was substantial in terms of file size, we might get an idea with a datamine soon once the Nintendo Switch patch comes out.

SuperData (Nielsen): Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled returns to the top 10 titles digitally at #8 (Top grossing console title worldwide for December 2019)

Good news, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled has returned to the top 10 grossing console titles at #8, according to SuperData. The game has managed to climb back at the top, surpassing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege and Destiny 2 for the month of December 2019 around the world digitally. This is likely due to the aggressive marketing and deals given throughout the month to boost the game’s player-base, not to mention the awards given out to the game by the end of the year.

Thanks for the tip, Dom!
