Hot Wheels Unleashed’s latest video shows the game’s built-in track builder mode in action.
Naturally, the first thing we’re going to do when we get our hands on this racer’s build-your-own-track mode is to create a horrifying nightmare which will launch vehicles into oblivion. But when we’ve done that we’ll get down to creating a proper track because, going by this new trailer, it looks to be absolutely, amazingly ridiculous. As long as you can connect the pieces together (the trailer suggests you can even bend them) you can make it.
The one catch is that (as far as we can tell) you can’t rearrange furniture so the rooms that your tiny die-cast cars race around in will stay the same. If there’s a table against the wall, that table will always be against the wall. But everything else is up to you; you can put down track pieces, special stunt sets and create the kind of ridiculous track that would cost a fortune to build in real life.
On top of that, you’ll be able to race around Hot Wheels Unleashed community creations so if your track is fun enough, and challenging enough, other Hot Wheels players could end up belting around it.
Unfortunately, you’ve still got a little while to wait as the game’s not out till September 27th, when it arrives on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, Playstation 4 and Playstation 5. But the more we see of Hot Wheels Unleashed the more excited we are to get our hands on it.
