Available from ICON 1 fame level, the Live Summit is a weekly PvE competition in which you take on a thematic playlist of nine activities, selected among the game’s wide range of playgrounds and disciplines. You can access it through a dedicated billboard in any HQ, or via shortcuts in the News or the Activities menus. Each Live Summit has a unique theme that really spices up the challenge, ranging from full Polar climates to Vintage vs Modern showdowns.
The Live Summit’s nine activities will include:
- 3 skills
- 4 existing events revamped to fit the week’s theme
- 1 new event for an existing discipline
- 1 special event that mashes up an existing track/playground with vehicles from a different discipline
Earning a higher level will also net you the rewards from all lower levels. For example, a Gold medal in the Live Summit will also include the Silver and Bronze rewards.
Obtaining a Platinum medal will always earn you an exclusive reward. The last Live Summit of every month will up the stakes, to reward all Platinum medals with an exclusive vehicle! Speaking of vehicles, your own vehicle levels and affixes are taken into account while racing in the Live Summit. Picking the right ride and tuning it up before hitting the starting grid is therefore of the utmost importance! Likewise, certain events will require specific vehicles or vehicle types, so keep an eye on the Live Summit calendar to know what you’ll need in the coming weeks. Vehicles will not be lent, so if you don’t own the right one you cannot take part.
Note that if you play in a crew, only the crew leader needs to own the required vehicles for all crew members to participate.
