On September 30th we can return to our childhood with Hot Wheels Unleashed and drive the colorful toy cars over various routes. There are several single and multiplayer modes available. Even split-screen races are possible.
Let go of the little speedsters
Hot Wheels Unleashed puts the racing cars in the foreground, each of which has its own attributes and rarity levels, making them attractive to collectors. It is even possible to customize the vehicles with additional skins.
"We continue to focus on getting our fans excited about our brands through computer games," said Andrew Chan, Head of Digital Gaming at Mattel. "Hot Wheels is about building the spirit of competition and our newest title, Hot Wheels Unleashed, does just that – for gamers of all ages. Milestone's extensive expertise in racing game development gives us the opportunity to bring the Hot Wheels brand into to transform a convincing console and PC gaming experience for current Hot Wheels fans and gamers who want to rediscover our cult brand. "
"Like many of the other team members working on Hot Wheels Unleashed, I've played with the Hot Wheels cars since I was a kid. Today I'm still a hungry Hot Wheels fan and collector," added Michele Caletti, Executive Producer at Milestone. "That's why we are all working so hard to bring the most authentic Hot Wheels gaming experience ever to a video game. We owe it to the Hot Wheels community and the kids deep inside ourselves . "
Once you have mastered the official, interactive routes, you can use the track editor to create your own courses. You can then share this with the Hot Wheels Unleashed community. The arcade racer appears for PC, PS5 and PS4 as well as Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One. A version for Nintendo Switch is also coming.

All readers receive daily news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts about their favorite games free of charge. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. You can support us as a PC Games supporter so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free, without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
