Hot Wheels Unleashed Brings Arcade-Style Racing To Consoles And PC This September



Hot Wheels Unleashed is a new racing game based on one of the most popular toys of all time. Instead of spending hours building elaborate tracks and accidentally stepping on the favorite car you misplaced, the new game lets players skip the busy work and get straight into the race.

Veteran racing developer Milestone Games (MotoGP, Ride Series) describes Hot Wheels Unleashed as an “action-packed arcade-style racing game.” Players get behind the wheel of the miniature die-cast vehicles and cycle through the iconic orange unfolds on their own in various single-player modes or against friends in multiplayer, online and local split-screen. The first trailer shows a high octane race in reverse. As the camera moves, it turns out the big race is actually a small track set up inside a full-size garage. It’s unclear whether or not the game retains that “little person in a big world” style or not, but I personally hope so.

“We continue to focus on engaging consumers with our brands through gaming platforms,” said Andrew Chan, head of digital games at Mattel. “Hot Wheels is all about nurturing the spirit of challenger and Hot Wheels Unleashed brings this mission to life for players of all ages. Milestone’s expertise in developing racing games has enabled us to transform the Hot Wheels brand into a compelling console and PC gaming experience for current fans and Hot Wheels gamers alike who may rediscover the iconic brand. ”

We still have a lot to learn about Hot Wheels Unleashed, but it launches September 30 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. You can pre-order now to get the Beefed Up Pack, which includes the HW Armored Truck and Baja Bone Shaker, pictured below.
