Unless you are as rich as Jay Leno, chances are you are not going to have a garage full of cars to play with. For most people, die-cast cars like Hot Wheels are their best bet. But wait. You can’t actually get behind the wheel of die-cast cars, can you? Well, actually you can, virtually, with the Hot Wheels Unleashed video game.
The Hot Wheels Unleashed was developed in collaboration between Mattel and Italian game developer Milestone S.r.l., and it will be released globally on September 30, 2021 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch as well as PC (on Steam and Epic Games Store).
Last week, the companies have revealed a garage full of cars that will be available at launch and it include no less than 66 vehicles, featuring Hot Wheels’ most celebrated original designs including Boneshaker, Twin Mill, along with pop culture vehicles like the Party Wagon from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snoopy from Peanuts, K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the DeLorean Time Machine from Back to the Future franchise.
Also included in the garage are real-life automobiles found on the roads and racetracks, past, present and future. This real-life vehicles ranges from classic rides such as the 1932 Ford Duce and 1969 Dodge Charger to modern day Audi R8 Spyder and Honda S2000 to futuristic real-life, exotic rides such as the 2020 Koenigsegg Jesko.
The 66 cars offered are just the tip of the iceberg. Additional vehicles will be made available by playing Hot Wheels Unleashed across all its different game modes. Like real world cars, these virtual Hot Wheels vehicles can be upgraded to improve their performance.
