For the past couple of months Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled has been running online "Grand Prix" events that you could take part in to unlock new characters and customisations, the upcoming one, starting this Friday, is the turn of the previously announced Spyro and Friends Grand Prix.


The unlockable characters for this event are Spyro, Hunter, and Gnasty Gnorc. For a closer look at the Spyro themed track itself, called Spyro Circuit, and some other unlockables (like a Reignited style Dark Spyro skin) you can head on over to the PlayStation Blog.

The fifth and sixth post launch additions to the lineup of Skylanders in the mobile game Skylanders: Ring of Heroes were released today, they were the Undead element Chop Chop and the Light element Spotlight. Unlike the previous additions they were not accompanied by an episode dungeon, so you'll just have to unlock them both the regular way: through sheer random luck when summoning.

The full patch notes give more details about the many other changes to the game that 1.0.12 has brought with it. Most notable are the changes to how you earn Soul Stones, the game has removed the ability to earn them through Adventures and has instead greatly boosted how many are given to you when summoning. Naturally this has meant a lot of changes to the rewards for activities throughout the game, with most being reduced or switched to make it harder to earn a summon than ever before.

Anyone who has finished powering up a Skylander and found themselves with excess Soul Stones will be interested to hear that there is now a way to convert them into "Soul Stone Shards" which can then be combined into an "Element Ticket" which is then used to summon either 200 Heroic or 100 Legendary Soul Stones for a random Skylander of your chosen element. Of course this has an incredibly low exchange rate considering it requires 12,000 Shards for one ticket.

Today's update for Skylanders: Ring of Heroes has brought with it a brand new mode: Guild War. If your guild has 10 or more members you can take part in daily battles against members of another guild, rewards for competing include guild points and wish stones as well as gems at the end of each season. You can find all the details on how to get battling by reading the official Guild War Guide.

The patch also brings a few changes to several Light and Dark Skylanders and lots of initial cooldown changes which may mean you'll want to change up your start of battle strategy.

Meditating Woodland has returned to a useful EXP amount, the active Skylander EXP is slightly lower than it was originally but spectators in the Woodland now get the same EXP as the active Skylanders.

And the Magic Shop has gained two more purchasable slots, it now also sells Runes and the stock can be refreshed with Gems.

As usual check out the full patch notes for all the details.
