After the success of his title Hot Wheels Unleashed, which has sold more than 2 million copies, Milestone decides to move up a gear with small cars from Mattel. Indeed, the studio announces the upcoming release ofHot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged. This sequel, scheduled for October 19, 2023, will be released on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store as well as PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series and Nintendo Switch.
In this new opus, Milestone promises many new features. Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged should benefit from nearly 130 vehicles at the time of its launch, including motorcycles and quads which are arriving in the game. In terms of the environment, the title will offer five to start with. Each with a unique surface that will have an impact on the vehicles and therefore the way they are driven. Especially since two new mechanics are arriving, namely the side dash and the jump. The first will allow as much to enter the adversaries as to dodge the obstacles. As for the second, it will allow the player to be able to perform dantesque jumps as soon as they wish.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2 will offer several game modes, including a scripted career mode with four original characters. Local split-screen multiplayer for two players also returns. Moreover, improvements have been made since it will now be possible to create groups with friends and it will be possible to play cross-play except on Switch.
