Hot Wheels Unleashed is a new racing game coming out in 2021 from developer Milestone and Embracer Group publisher Koch Media, who have a history of working on big racing franchises like MotoGP, WRC2 and Monster Energy Supercross.
The newest adaptation of the world-famous Hot Wheels™ toy franchise will include crossover DLC content with several well known brands, including big pop culture names like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snoopy and DC Comics’ Batman and big car culture names like Chevy, Dodge and Aston Martin.
If you want to get Hot Wheels Unleashed Early Access, you’ll need to buy the Ultimate Stunt Edition. It’s a digital only version that includes the Early Access bonus on all platforms, and will let you play on September 27, 2021.
Hot Wheels Unleashed releases on September 30, 2021. If you get the Ultimate Stunt Edition then you can play it three days before people who bought the cheaper versions of the game.
Hot Wheels Unleashed is available on every big platform other than mobile. That means you can play it on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Nintendo Switch.
Hot Wheels Unleashed is not currently set to arrive on game pass. It is being released on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S however, so things may change in the future. If they do, we’ll update this page.
Although you can play online, Hot Wheels Unleashed has no crossplay, or cross progression whatsoever. You’ll need to stick to whichever platform you started the game on and make sure you’re keeping a copy of your save in the cloud!
