Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged is set to get Fast and Furious

With a gaggle of movies in the can, the Fast and Furious franchise is about to hit the plastic tracks of Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged.

It’s about family. And die-cast cars

“On day one” players will be able to drive Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody, in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2. But while that’s pretty cool in and of itself, there’s apparently much more coming, that’ll hit the game as post-launch downloadable content.

A massive collaboration between Milestone and Universal, the upcoming cars from Fast & Furious heading to Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged were first hinted at earlier this year in Universal Pictures’ movie Fast X, when Dominic Toretto’s son Brian and sister Mia played Hot Wheels Unleashedon screen. With the new mechanics coming to players in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: TurbochargedFastfans will be able to pull off some of the film franchise’s bombastic stunts in full die-cast glory.

Mattel press release

While Dom and his mean machine will be stock with the game’s base edition, as mentioned, you’ll find that there’ll be even more Fast content coming up post-launch. Exactly what that’ll entail is a mystery right now, though it’ll apparently be a “significant” amount.

“We are proud and excited to collaborate with Universal Games and Digital Platforms to bring the legendary Fast & Furious franchise to the virtual tracks of Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged,” said Andrea Loiudice, Publishing Director at Milestone. “This partnership will fuel the adrenaline of players worldwide, who will unleash their imagination behind the wheel of their favorite Fast & Furious vehicles. We appreciate Mattel’s contribution to such a significant collaboration and we can’t wait to witness the thrill and joy it will bring to gamers worldwide.”
