  • Patch notes:

LIMITED EVENTS

UPGRADE YOUR RACER OF CHOICE

  • A new type of Time Limited Event will be introduced in Season 5 that will give players more flexibility on the Racers they wish to upgrade. In this new Time Limited Event, players will be able to select a specific Racer from a selection to earn rewards for, giving you more agency on how you progress in the game. 
  • Once a player has completed all Objectives for a particular Racer, they will need to wait for the refresh timer to reset to be able to select a different Racer to progress. Players will also have the option to automatically reset the refresh timer by using Tokens. 

 

“IT ALL STARTED WITH A MOUSE” TIME LIMITED EVENT

RANKED MULTIPLAYER

RANKED REWARDS

  • Starting in Season 5, we will be increasing the amount of Upgrade Parts players can earn by playing Ranked Multiplayer for all Racers. This change is aimed at making it easier for players to reach Star Level 3 with each Racer.
    Rewards for progressing through the different MPR Leagues can only be earned once, which means that some of our veteran players will not be able to benefit from the aforementioned increase in rewards.

LOBBY SIZE

  • The game will now prioritize having at least 3 players in the lobby before a Race is launched. This should reduce the number of 1 vs 1 races at the highest MPR levels.

Disney Speedstorm – Ver. ??? (Hotfix)

  • Release date: November 2nd 2023 (North America, Europe, Japan)
  • Patch notes:

RANKED MULTIPLAYER PARTY LEVEL REQUIREMENTS  

  • In Ranked Multiplayer, the party system was being exploited by a small portion of the player base. To address this issue and to help improve matchmaking in general we have now introduced Racer Upgrade limits to Multiplayer parties. This means a party cannot be comprised of Racers with an Upgrade Level difference of more than 10 levels. For example, if a Racer is Upgrade Level 1, the maximum Upgrade Level you can queue in a party with is Upgrade Level 11 or a level 40 Racer cannot queue with a level 29 Racer and so on. We will monitor how this new system works and adjust it based on community feedback, if needed.  

RANKED MULTIPLAYER MATCHMAKING  

  • Racers with a very high Upgrade Level but very low MPR League will no longer be matched with Racers with both a low Upgrade Level and MPR League. This change should improve the initial Ranked Multiplayer experience for new players, while ensuring more challenging races for experienced players.  

HOP EXPLOIT  

  • Players were able to exploit both Common and Unique Skills that grant a speed boost by repeatedly hopping after activating the skill to maintain top speed for a longer duration than intended. It is no longer possible to maintain top speed by hopping repeatedly when using one of these skills.

  • Fixed an issue causing Racers to be sent backwards after Dashing a Rival Racer.

UPGRADE MATERIALS IMPROVEMENTS

The Upgrade Materials system is receiving an overhaul to become more simplified for all players in time for the shift of Disney Speedstorm to free-to-play. The changes include:

  • Reducing the total number of Upgrade Materials per Racer from 15 to 10.
  • Maintaining 3 Universal Materials and 4 Collection Materials (per Collection).
  • Introducing 4 new Class Materials.
  • Changing Material rarity based on the category of the Material.
  • Unifying the types of Materials each Racer needs.

At the start of Season 4, the Upgrade Parts inventory of all existing players will be converted to the new Upgrade Materials. Worry not, the conversion system is designed to ensure that it benefits the player and your new inventory of Upgrade Parts will have at least as much utility as previously, if not more. 

 

COLLECTION LEVEL IMPROVEMENTS

The Collection Level system is getting revamped next Season! Following the changes, Collection Level rewards will include Racer Shards, Crew Member Shards, vanity items, Upgrade Parts and in-game currency.

  • The number of CPU Racers in Ranked Multiplayer races for Racers with an MPR between 0-3 is being reduced to 4.
ARBEE DRIVE

Update 3 will introduce an additional control feature to the game – Arbee Drive.

All other actions, such as boosting, dashing or using a Skill, remain under the player’s control.

 

You will be able to toggle Arbee Drive on or off before the start of a race, in the mid-race pause menu, or from the controls settings.

USERNAME CHANGES

Starting from this update, all players will have a unique username in the game. On PC and consoles, the default username will be the one of the platform. If your PC or console username is Arbee123, it will default to Arbee123 in-game as well.

If the platform username is already in use by another account, the player ID number will be added to the end of the username. 

Additionally, players will now be able to customize their username from their in-game Player Profile.
