Cosmetic Changes

ControllerConnected.png

Time Attack introduction screen as of Munich Update.png
Grand Finale introduction screen as of Munich Update.png

  • The logo for Arrinera has been updated.
  • The manufacturer logo for the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren 722 Edition has been reverted back to Mercedes-Benz.
  • The height of the radio station selection in the pause menu has been lowered
  • The menus for Pro Boxes, Car Mastery races, MAX upgrades, and post-race Multiplayer options have been reduced in size.
  • Car Mastery now shows if the race is on a reverse direction of the track
  • The rims of the GT by CITROEN have been changed.
    • The new rims are not based on any real life or virtual models and look poorly made
  • When playing with motorcycles, the camera now remains static when the player drives the bike on tilted areas (The Great Wall, Tokyo, Sector 8, Tenerife, and Patagonia), allowing the player to control the bike more easily in those areas.
  • When the game detects that a controller is connected, the message that appears is renamed from "Controller Detected" to "Controller Connected" and has been moved to the center of the screen. In addition, it now displays a diagram showing the controller controls, replacing the message "A controller has been connected.".
  • In Career races, Enduro races & Moto Blitz races, if the selected car has been purchased and has a rank lower than the recommended rank, an exclamation mark will appear to the right of the recommended rank and on the top-right corner of the "Next" button. This change was used also in the Championship.
  • Multiplayer lobbies no longer show a "You" with the player's username being shown instead
  • Championship location unlock screens now show a progress bar on the featured car's BP count
  • The introduction screen for Time Attack & Grand Finale events has changed from a Formula One car's silhouette to a normal car's (possibly an Audi R8 e-tron's) in the R&D and Championship.

Bugs / Glitches

  • Reset Upgrades: Any vehicle that the player has upgraded but does not own will have its MAX upgrades reset. Gameloft released a hotfix[3] which "allow(s) Gameloft to run scripts to get the upgrades back as they were, and this will happen over the upcoming days".
  • Unusable Fusion Boxes: Attempting to fuse cards will show a full fusion bar. Upon tapping the "Claim" button, the game will show player's actual Fusion Points counter. The boxes depicted is also different, it is now a green BP offer box and the source code for the box's name and description are also shown. This was fixed shortly after the update's release
  • Missing Events: There have been reports that the R&D event for the McLaren 650S GT3 are not available to players even though an advert for the event and the car are shown. This was fixed during the release of the Windows version update.
    • The same case also happened with the Kawasaki Z800 Championship.
  • Game crashes on Android: The game will crash on Android when certain breakable objects are destroyed on the new track. The only solution is to remove the game cache from the SD card and re-download the game. This bug was fixed in the Hot Wheels Update.
  • Persistent Steering: On various versions of iOS 11 & 10.3 and type of device, the game will have the vehicle constantly steering in one direction even if the device's gyroscope is calibrated. Rebooting the game only temporarily fixes the problem for a limited duration; at most, only the entirety of the first race is problem free. The only permanent solution is to restore an earlier iOS version. This is also present in Asphalt Xtreme
    • It is strongly recommended to have a backup of the device's contents as well as the game progress as an iOS reversion is considered to be a factory reset.
  • No "Synchronizing Data..." or "Synchronization Complete" in R&D: The "Synchronizing Data..."/"Synchronization Complete" disappears during R&D events (EDDs and Championships are not affected), meaning if there are synchronization problems, the entire R&D race must be re-run from scratch as it prevents the re-sync button from appearing. This was fixed in Hot Wheels Update.
  • Non-stop Out of Bounds: After a Time Attack in Alps Sprint 4, the AI will often cause the player's vehicle to repeatedly go out of bounds.
  • Pro Card Arrangement: The arrangement of the player's inventory is similarly garbled with the card's rarity and type being disregarded. This was also fixed shortly after.
  • Sound on opening boxes (Android): When a pro kit box is opened, the sound effect for the opening sequence will play twice: The first is when the box is shown, the second is when the cards are presented.
  • Missing date on Daily Rewards: For October's daily rewards calendar, the 31st was missing. Whenever the game was loaded up, the sound effect would play but no reward was given, nor would the calendar be shown. This was fixed shortly after.

The following bugs/glitches have been fixed:

  • Sector 8 loop glitch
  • The "Championship" bug where Championships would end up being replaced with the McLaren M14A's Championship.
  • No Horizon Tilt.
  • Missing Events
  • Pro Card Arrangement
  • Missing date on Daily Rewards
  • Unusable Fusion Boxes

Post-Update Screen

Trivia

  • This update marks the firsts of the following:
    • To have manufacturer-neutral Championships.
    • To postpone a bike for more than one update because of possible licensing issues.
    • Not to add new Class B vehicles.
    • Not to add Enduro Double Down reward vehicles.
  • This update is the second update in the year 2017 to add a new track.
  • This update once again reuses the Research & Development Update icon for the seventh time featuring the McLaren P1™ GTR.
  • With a total of 4 relaunched events, this update has the highest number of relaunched events in 2017.

Notes

  1. The prices charged are still the same from previous updates. The only difference is the lack of Credit prices.
  2. While the October 31, 2017 hotfix addressed this, it is unknown as to how extensive the reversion was.
