Well, it leaked weeks ago, but now it’s official: Hot Wheels Unleashed is racing to the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on 30th September. Developed by the ever-industrious Milestone, the game will see you “drift, boost, jump, and crash on Hot Wheels’ iconic orange tracks in various single player game modes”. There’ll also be multiplayer modes, both online and offline, with split-screen support.
The press release explains: “Hot Wheels Unleashed offers players the opportunity to drive the cars as if they were playing with the die-cast toys. The gameplay includes adrenaline-filled races, an extended choice of Hot Wheels vehicles with different attributes and rarity levels that players can customize with different skins, and jaw-dropping tracks set in everyday-life locations with special track pieces and interactive items.”
There’ll be a full track editor, and you’ll be able to share your best circuits with the game’s community online. Pre-orders are open now, but you can check out an announcement trailer embedded above.
