Who does not love an arcade racer? Milestone Games has announced Hot Wheels Unleashed, a new racing game based on one of the most popular racing toys of all time.
Milestone is known for its work on the MotoGP and RIDE series so it is nice to see them stepping out of the box for a change. The developer describes the game as an “action-packed, arcade-style racing game”. Players get behind the wheel inside their favourite Hot Wheels toy cars and race across iconic tracks.

These tracks include sky-high plastic raceways and other iconic Hot Wheels tracks. Hot Wheels Unleashed will feature single-player, online and offline multiplayer modes.
Andrew Chan, Head of Digital Gaming for Mattel said in a statement:
“We continue to focus on engaging consumers with our brands through gaming platforms. Hot Wheels is all about encouraging the challenger spirit and Hot Wheels Unleashed brings that mission to life for gamers of all ages. Milestone’s expertise in racing game development has enabled us to transform the Hot Wheels brand into a compelling console and PC gaming experience for both current Hot Wheels fans and gamers who may be rediscovering the iconic brand.”
We hope to see more about Hot Wheels Unleashed in the coming weeks. The game is set to release on 30 September 2021 for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC. Users who pr-order the game will gain access to a Beefed Up Pack which includes the HW Armoured Truck, and the Baja Bone Shaker.
