The action-packed arcade-style racer featuring Hot Wheels cars is now available for pre-order and will release later this year.
Mattel and Milestone announced today the upcoming release of Hot Wheels Unleashed which is scheduled to release on September 30.
It is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
You can expect to race around Hot Wheels’ iconic orange tracks in various single-player game modes. You can also challenge others in multiplayer races, both online and offline with a split-screen mode.
“We continue to focus on engaging consumers with our brands through gaming platforms,” said Andrew Chan, Head of Digital Gaming, Mattel. “Hot Wheels is all about encouraging the challenger spirit and Hot Wheels Unleashed brings that mission to life for gamers of all ages. Milestone’s expertise in racing game development has enabled us to transform the Hot Wheels brand into a compelling console and PC gaming experience for both current Hot Wheels fans and gamers who may be rediscovering the iconic brand.”
“Like many other team members who worked on the game, I’ve been playing with Hot Wheels since I was a child, and today I’m still a hungry Hot Wheels fan and collector,” said Michele Caletti, Executive Producer, Milestone. “This is the reason why we’re all so committed to delivering the purest and most authentic Hot Wheels gameplay experience ever in a videogame. We owe it to the Hot Wheels community and to our inner children.”
Hot Wheels Unleashed offers you the opportunity to drive the cars as if you are actually playing with the die-cast toys.
The gameplay includes races, an extended choice of Hot Wheels vehicles with different attributes and rarity levels. These can also be customized with different skins. It also features tracks set in everyday-life locations with special track pieces and interactive items.
The game also features a Track Editor enabling you to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the community.
