Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled adding DLC vehicle for charity

Activision is looking to raise some extra money for the Call of Duty Endowment charity and is doing so by offering a special limited-supply vehicle in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.


Activision doesn't normally cross their franchises over. It's not likely that you'll see Crash Bandicoot rub elbows with the soldiers of Call of Duty. However, Activision is more receptive to opening the doors of their various franchises to one of their biggest charities. On Friday, the publisher anounced a special team-up between Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled and the Call of Duty Endowment charitable foundation.

Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled Firehawk

The team-up is a new DLC vehicle called the Firehawk. As one might imagine, given the tie-in to Call of Duty, the Firehawk is modeled after a classic military fighter plane. The Firehawk can be used with any of the Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled characters. Players will notice the Call of Duty Endowment logo placed along the plane's tail, giving the charity a bit of an extra shoutout.

This marks one of the first occasions in which Call of Duty Endowment items will be featured in a game outside of the core CoD franchise. Most recently, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 received a special piece of DLC for the game's Blackout battle royale mode, getting a special care package, as well as an exclusive PlayStation 4 theme. Activision has already done some great work with its nonprofit, finding gainful employment for over 50,000 veterans across the United States and United Kingdom. You can learn more about Call of Duty Endowment from our interview conducted with Executive Director Dan Goldenberg earlier this year.

The Firehawk will be available on the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo eShop starting today. All proceeds will go directly towards Call of Duty Endowment. However, the Firehawk won't be available forever. Activision is only offering the vehicle in a limited supply and plans to pull the item upon raising $1 million, so don't hesitate to pick it up while you can.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
