Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled is the remake of the original kart racing game series. Both games have been combined, making Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled the ultimate package for CTR fans old and new. There’s a bunch of new features too, including online play and matchmaking. This really opens up the game, allowing you to race other players from all over the globe. To help make sure you have all the info you need to jump into a CTR race online, we’ve put together this Crash Team Racing Online Guide. We’ll take a look at how Online Matchmaking works, and the different modes you can choose from.

Crash Team Racing Online

For the first time in the series Crash Team Racing Nitro Fuelled allows you to hop online to race other players. It’s a neat feature, one which really helps to modernize the original game for today’s players. To access the online component of Crash Team Racing, select ‘Online’ from the main menu.

Crash Team Racing Matchmaking

If you’re looking to face off against other players online in Crash Team Racing, you’ll need to head into Online Matchmaking. You’ll first choose a racing type, and then head into the Lobby where you’ll be grouped with other players from around the world. From here, the race will start automatically, so feel free to head into the Customization menu while you wait.

Crash Team Racing Private Match

If you’d prefer to play against other players of your choosing, head to the Private Match option in the Online main menu. From here you can choose to either head into a race or a Battle. Once you’ve made your choice, head into the Lobby where you can alter the Game Settings and Customization of your kart.

Crash Team Racing Invite Friends

The online menu of Crash Team Racing has a feature which allows you to invite your friends into your game. You can access this list while in a Private Lobby, or in a Public Matchmaking Lobby. Just select the friends you want to invite and they’ll be in the game in no time.

Crash Team Racing Battle Mode Online

Before heading into a Lobby in Crash Team Racing, you’ll need to select your Racing Type. You can either head into a standard race event, or into Battle Mode. There are five different types of Battle Mode to choose from, details of which can be found below:

  • Limit Battle – Hit opponents with your favorite Power Ups to score points.
  • Capture the Flag – Grab the other team's flag and drive it through your team's portal to win.
  • Crystal Grab – Collect the most crystals within the time limit. Getting hit by an enemy will prove to be costly!
  • Last Kart Driving – Use your limited number of tries to hit your opponents before they hit you and be the last kart driving!
  • Steal the Bacon – There's only one bacon left for everyone. Grab it as quickly as you can and bring it back to your home portal.

That’s all of the info we have for Crash Team Racing Online, be sure to leave a comment below if you have any further queries. For a look at how to get the CTR Tokens hidden away in Mystery Caves, head to our Crash Team Racing Mystery Caves Walkthrough.
