Likeable arcade racer Hot Wheels Unleashed is adding some big DC Comics-themed content as we edge closer towards Christmas, with the DC Super-Villains Racing Season getting underway from 11th November through 18th January. Available to every player, the Battle Pass-style update will deliver “a large number of free and premium content than can be unlocked by completing new challenges”.

This will include six vehicles: Bane, The Cheetah, Poison Ivy, Black Manta, Deathstroke, and Harley Quinn. There’ll also be a ton of customisation options for your Basement and Player Profile to unlock. It’ll be followed on 2nd December by the release’s first major DLC update: the Batman Expansion. This will feature an entirely new Career Map inspired by Gotham, and a new environment: the Batcave.

“The Batman Expansion also includes five themed vehicles spanning The Penguin, Robin 2.0T, Armored Batman, Batman Rebirth, and The Joker GT, plus a new Track Builder Module – the Joker Funhouse Split – and tons of themed customisation items,” the press release reads. If you already own the Hot Wheels Pass Volume 1 then you’ll get this add-on as part of that, but it can be purchased separately.

There are a couple of trailers embedded in this article which show the new content off. Are you feeling the lure of the Batman signal at all? Gargle with gravel like the Caped Crusader in the comments section below.
