Larkspur, Calif. (April 29, 2021) – Mattel and Milestone today released a new Hot Wheels Unleashed™ gameplay trailer unveiling its second stunning gameplay environment, the Skyscraper.
After revealing the rusty and dark Garage, with its underground mood, it is now time to have a look at this new environment where verticality becomes the protagonist. Set in a construction site, Skyscraper will include tracks set on three different floors of the building under construction, with areas that will definitely test players’ fear of heights.
The new gameplay video also unveiled six new vehicles out of the 60+ plus vehicles available at launch. The new cars revealed are: Bump Around™, Mountain Mauler™, Sandivore™, Boom Car™, Buns of Steel™, Fast Gassin™, and Motosaurus™.
Hot Wheels Unleashed offers players the opportunity to drive the cars as if they were playing with the die-cast toys. The gameplay includes adrenaline-filled races, an extended choice of Hot Wheels vehicles with different attributes and rarity levels that players can customize with different skins, and jaw-dropping tracks set in everyday-life locations with special track pieces and interactive items. The game also features a revolutionary Track Editor enabling players to customize tracks in any game environment and share them with the game’s community.
