A sequel to the hit toy-car racer Hot Wheels Unleashed is officially on the way, and will launch onto consoles and the PC later this year.
Hotter than ever
When you start watching this trailer for the upcoming Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged, you’re likely gonna think it’s just more of the same. But while there is similar racing-action to the original, there’s a moment where this game gets significantly more interesting.
Check it out:
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged will launch with over 130 vehicles, including the debut of motocycles and ATVs. Stock, Powered, and Ultimate vehicle categories will provide varied driving experiences, while players will be able to further customize their driving style using skill points to earn specific perks and assemble their ideal custom build.
Five distinct environments await players in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged, each with unique racing surfaces that impact vehicle performance for a more dynamic match experience. Vehicles will also interact with objects both on and off the track, making races even more unpredictable as players decide to look for their own shortcuts in races.Mattel press release
As you can see there, Unleashed 2 adds in both dash and jump features for its cars. Together with on and offline multiplayer, a career mode, cross-play, and of course lots to user-generated content, it should be a racer to watch here in 2023.
You an expect it to arrive some time this fall, for Xbox and PlayStation platforms, as well as the Nintendo Switch and the PC.
