Racing little metal cars is back, with Hot Wheels Unleashed. Mattel is bringing the iconic IP to game platforms, and we’ve got your first look.

Unleashing a classic

Hot Wheels Unleashed isn’t the first time that Hot Wheels, as a brand, has made the jump to video games. Actually, not by a long shot, as the license has been used a ton of times, even recently. Unleashed though, looks like it might be one of the better ones.

From the toy company and developer Milestone, Hot Wheels Unleashed finally has a full look at gameplay. As you’ll see, it’s jam-packed with insane cars, huge set pieces, and yes plenty of orange track.

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. The game also features a revolutionary Track Editor enabling players to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the game’s community.


Get ready to roll out, Hot Wheels Unleashed is coming to the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC (Steam and Epic) on September 30th.
