New Hot Wheels Unleashed Racing Game Launches This September From MotoGP Devs
The arcade-style Hot Wheels racer's release date is set for September 30 on consoles and PC.
Developer Milestone--the Milan-based studio known for simulation racers like MotoGP 20 and Ride 4--has announced a partnership with toy manufacturer Mattel to release Hot Wheels Unleashed, a brand-new arcade-style racing game that's slated to launch on September 30 for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
Publisher Deep Silver also shared a trailer for the game. Though entirely computer-generated, the trailer gives a glimpse into what players can expect when the game drops later this year. Players can take their customizable Hot Wheels cars, which come with different attributes and in varying rarities, and drive them across tracks set against everyday-life locations like bedrooms and kitchens. The game is meant to simulate die-cast toy racing but with a more arcade-y feel.
Hot Wheels Unleashed also includes a "revolutionary Track Editor," according to a press release. This editor lets players create and customize tracks that can be shared online.
Players can preorder Hot Wheels Unleashed right now on all platforms. Those that do will get two vehicle bonuses: the GT-Scorcher muscle car and the Track Manga sport car.
In the last 24 hours, Mattel and Deep Silver's official website for the game had teased today's reveal. While this is the game's official reveal, the Microsoft Store seemingly accidentally revealed Hot Wheels Unleashed and leaked its released date when a listing appeared earlier this month.
