The game will be released on both platforms on September 30, 2021, and include both online and offline multiplayer races, with various single-player modes to check out as well. You have the chance to customise your cars with different skins and race in a variety of windy and twisty track, with unique pieces and items available. A track editor is also included for you to customise any of the in-game environments.
In a press release, Andrew Chan from Mattel stated “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.”
Milestone’s own Michele Caletti also said “we’re all so committed in 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.”
Those who pre-order will get access to the Hot Wheels – Beefed Up pack, which includes an Armored Truck and Baja Bone Shaker for you to drive.
