New Vehicles

Game Changes

Gameplay Changes

  • New race mode: Slipstream Mode

  • The stats for several cars have been changed.
  • Reputation points can no longer be earned from career races.
    • This only applies to played career races.
  • The reputation points from daily club goals has been reduced to 50.
  • Import parts are now available in the Legend Store.
  • No knockdown and no rating loss modes introduced for Multiplayer.

Cosmetic Changes

  • The interface for solo rewards in Events has been updated.
  • New app icon of a white background with a "9" silhouette for iOS versions of the game.
  • Several traffic vehicles have been recolored.
  • The blueprints availability message at where the player taps the blueprints when viewing a vehicle at the garage has changed. For instance, for exclusive event vehicles (Rezvani Beast X, VLF Force 1, Cadillac Cien and Trion Nemesis), the message now says "This car's blueprints can be obtained from exclusive events every two weeks".
    • In addition, a "Pro Tips" button is added to indicate tips where and when the player can obtain blueprints.
  • A tick now indicates sent messages in club chat.

Bugs/Glitches

  • Glitched notification: After claiming a classic pack from the shop, the "!" symbol at the shop tab doesn't disappear. It only disappears when the game is reentered.
    • This was later fixed. However the glitch has reoccurred after the Bugatti Chiron special event.
  • Error claiming leaderboard rewards: When rewards from a leaderboard event are claimed, the game remains stuck at the synchronizing screen. When the game is force closed and reentered, the card rewards are not shown.
    • This was later fixed.

Post-Update Screen

Trivia

  • The announcement for the update erroneously refers to the McLaren 570S Spider as the "McLaren 570S Coupe".
    • The post-update screen also mentions "570s" (lowercase S) instead.
