Seems that Activision could not help themselves, and will add microtransactions to Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.

According to a post from Activision. Players can use Wumpa Coins to unlock and “fast-track” their progression.

As always, the Pit Stop will be stocked with new and returning characters and cosmetic items, which players can unlock using Wumpa Coins*. With all this content available, there will also now be a way for players to fast-track their Wumpa Coin collection if they like. 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. 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.

This system will be added on August 2nd along with the Back N. Time update that will add new characters, skins, karts, customization items, and a new track.

Behold the wonder of Prehistoric Playground! The new track for the Back N. Time Grand Prix will immerse racers in an epic world with Jurassic-sized flora, violent geysers bursting from the ground, caves with mysterious wall-paintings, and of course, giant dinosaurs roaming the land. There are also some other, strangely familiar, characters throughout – let’s just say that Fake Crash would feel very comfortable in this Prehistoric world home to an ancient tribe that bears a striking resemblance….

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is now available for PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
