Mattel and Milestone have released their Hot Wheels Unleashed customization trailer, giving players a closer look at personalizing liveries of their vehicles. The Livery Editor allows players to customize their cars to stand out and look unique on the track. Applying colors and shapes to Hot Wheels Originals and Real Manufacturer cars is just the beginning. Players can also share their creations with the world or download the best ones from the community.
A new environment has also been revealed. The Basement is a fully customizable space where players can personalize furniture and accessories. If a track is built in the Basement, every player that races on that track will see the Basement customization. Building the most challenging tracks through the living room, the kitchen and the pool table is another way to make the pure racing fun experience of Hot Wheels Unleashed even more personal and distinctive.
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 modules and interactive items. Hot Wheels Unleashed also features a revolutionary Track Builder enabling players to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the game’s community and a Livery Editor to customize Hot Wheels Originals and Real Manufacturer Cars.
The fast-paced arcade racer is scheduled to arrive on September 30 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC, via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
In case you missed our hands-on preview of Hot Wheels Unleashed, make sure to give it a read here.
If you were anything like me, then Hot Wheels was deeply entrenched in your childhood. It was a world that involved so many different types of vehicles, and each one had its own story and background. Milestone is looking to bring that world alive again, only this time it’s in the form of a video game, and the developers are looking to deliver a game that conjures up memories of both the past and present in Hot Wheels Unleashed. Although the game is not releasing until mid-September, Milestone provided me with a playable build of Hot Wheels Unleashed for this preview.
