Developed by Milestone, Hot Wheels Unleashed brings the classic toy car franchise to life. Using the Unreal Engine, both the vehicles and the environments are brought to the virtual world with accurate detail. This is combined with a suite of track and car customization tools, allowing users to let their imaginations run wild and share their creations with the rest of the game’s community.
The game features a literal toy chest load of different vehicle models based on many different properties, including classic designs like the Twin Mill, and even models of licensed vehicles from manufacturers like Audi, Dodge, Chevrolet, and more. In addition to this, the game features several rollercoaster-style tracks that bend, weave, and loop their way through five different environments: College Campus, Skatepark, Garage, Basement and Skyscraper.
With that in mind, here’s our guides and features hub for Hot Wheels Unleashed. We’ll update this over time, adding in plenty of helpful guides to get you on your way in the virtual Hot Wheels world.
