Hot Wheels Unleashed Announced


Players will be able to hit a number of iconic orange tracks when Milestone and Mattel’s Hot Wheels Unleashed hits PC and consoles later this year.

Each racer will be able to boost, drift, jump and crash with their favorite Hot Wheels via a number of single player and multiplayer game modes (online and offline). Each of the Hot Wheels vehicles have different attributes and rarity levels, which can be customized with different skins. To truly capture the spirit of the brand, a number of tracks set in everyday-life locations will be available, each with special track pieces and interactive items.
