Game Changes

Gameplay Changes

  • The amount of Credits obtained from regular Career Mode races has been massively reduced. Example: Base credits for Season 8, race 39 (Dubai): A8 credits small 1,200. Base Credits for Season 9 and McLaren Legends Season have been left untouched.
  • The Holden Coupe 60 is no longer Blueprint-buildable.
  • Moto Blitz seasons are rebalanced
  • Upgrading a vehicle now requires the player to have an active internet connection.
    • This is likely due to security measures.
  • R&D Proto Keys are now refilled individually.
  • Types 1 and 2 of A8Box R&amp;D Box R&D Basic Kit Boxes and A8Box R&amp;D Box R&D Advanced Kit Boxes now display misleading drop rates that reflect the average of both types instead of the correct percentages.
    • This also means that type 1 and 2 boxes now share the same slot in a player's inventory and cannot be distinguished any more.
    • R&D Boxes from past events, however, still have separate slots.
  • Following an official announcement,[1] the A8Box Finish Line Box Finish Line Box does not grant bike tech and parts any longer. It was one of the very few boxes that granted Rare and Pro Tech, and it had a very high drop rate of bike parts.
  • Unopened Pro Kit Boxes are now kept in a separate tab.
    • The inventory gives the option to open all remaining boxes at once.
    • The inventory has a card filter for Pro Kits and Blueprints.
    • Players are given the option to watch an ad after opening a box to get an extra card.
  • The amount of Credits obtainable from watching a daily ad has been reduced from A8 credits small 1,500 to A8 credits small 1,250.
  • The upgrade costs for 154 vehicles were decreased.
  • The upgrade costs for 94 vehicles were increased.
  • The ranks for the following 104 vehicles were changed:[1]

Bugs / Glitches

  • Unavailable booster ads: Some players experience a vanished Play ad! button for Nitro Starters when starting races while the Tuning Kit button is still displayed. Workaround: Playing a Tuning Kit ad first lets the Nitro Starter button reappear (Android).
  • The following glitches still persist from the preceding updates:
    • Temporarily higher box prices: When the update is rolled out, box prices in Exclusive Deals jump back to previous much higher prices for players who haven't installed the update, even if it's not yet available for their platform (Android). Installing the update fixes the box prices.
    • Delayed loading (Android)
    • Gameplay lag (Android)
    • Aggressive AI after restarting races
    • No loading screen when replaying/restarting races
