Post-update screen

Bugs/glitches

  • Degraded stability: Some vehicles, such as the 2018 McLaren X2, have reverted to their pre-Halloween Update physics and are prone to skidding out of control again.
  • Chrysler Firepower Festival Milestone ad bug: Watching the milestone ads can cause the Pro Kits, Shop, Inventory, Booster application, Multiplayer, Daily Tasks, and Special Events to become inaccessible.
    • This was fixed on July 12, 2020 and the BMW i8's R&D was extended for 2 days for those who encountered the problem.
  • Chrysler Firepower upgrade requirements: Upgrades for the Chrysler initially required only 1 Chrysler Firepower Kit a8 Chrysler Firepower Kit per upgrade making it the first vehicle to require only 40 cards to fully pro instead of 220.
    • This was reverted on July 13, 2020.
  • Wild Card conversion: Contrary to Gameloft's official announcement that Wild Cards can be converted into Vehicle Kit Cards once the corresponding Festival is completed,[2] Wilds Cards cannot be converted into Kit cards of a vehicle that was added in the same update.

Trivia

  • The post-update screen once has changed from TORINO DESIGN Super Sport to Chrysler Firepower after its festival event is over make it the first time to have a post-update screen changed during the game.
