Hot Wheels Unleashed, the racing game that debuted in 2021, has impressed fans with its thrilling gameplay. Now, developer Milestone is set to take the franchise to new heights with the highly anticipated sequel; Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged.
Scheduled for release on October 19, Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged promises to keep their beloved “little toy car in a big world” concept while introducing exciting new features. Players will now have the opportunity to hop on motorcycles and ATVs, expanding the game’s vehicle lineup to over 130 options.
In this exhilarating sequel, players will race across five environments with new skills: double jumping and lateral dashing. The new double jump can be executed anytime, allowing players to soar over competition, hurdles, and challenges.
On the other hand, lateral dashing proves useful for sideswiping opponents or evading hazards. Milestone promises enhanced competition among vehicles and on and off the track, offering a dynamic and immersive racing experience.
Additionally, players can customize their playstyles using earned skill points and unlock various perks.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged features a rewritten story-driven campaign that centers around the four staple characters with engaging animated cutscenes. The game also offers a variety of challenges, including events that will keep players’ drifting skills and their ability to evade crashes to the test.
For those seeking multiplayer thrills, the game ensures cross-play on most platforms  (except for the Switch) and allows players to create friend parties. Furthermore, local two-player split-screen functionality makes a welcome return.
Fans of the original game’s creation suite will be delighted that Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged boasts an enhanced Track Editor with additional features. The Livery Editor has also received an update through the Sticker Editor, which enables players to create their very own patterns or shapes.
An exciting feature is the ability to share user-generated content across platforms from the game’s launch. However, it has yet to be revealed if importing player content from the original game is possible.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged is set to launch on multiple platforms, including Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC.
With its thrilling gameplay, expanded vehicle roster, and exciting new features, Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged is gearing up to be a must-play racing game for fans of all ages. Mark your calendars for October 19, and get ready to unleash the turbocharged fun!
