The iconic orange tracks are set to make their console return on next-gen. For the first time since 2013, Hot Wheels will be releasing its arcade racer on home consoles. Titled Hot Wheels Unleashed, the game will speed onto both generations of PlayStation and Xbox. It will also see a release on PC and the Nintendo Switch.
Hot Wheels Unleashed will feature various single player modes as well as multiplayer races for both online and offline. Unleashed‘s split-screen mode will likely serve as a nice nod to its fan base who remembers the days of couch multiplayer when Hot Wheels: Turbo Racing launched on the PS1 and N64 in 1999.
“We’re all so committed to in delivering the purest and most authentic Hot Wheels gameplay experience ever in a video game,” said Milestone Executive Producer Michele Caletti in a statement. “We owe it to the Hot Wheels community and to our inner children.”
Fans of the racing franchise will be happy to know that Unleashed has implemented an all-new track editor into the game, allowing players to create their own environments and share them with others. Customization will also carry into other aspects of the game, such as vehicle skins.
Unleashed is the 16th installment in the Hot Wheels series since it broke into the video game realm back in 1984. Anyone looking to pre-order the latest release can do so as of today.
