What’s new in Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged
In addition to a set of returning game modes, five brand-new modes will be added into the game when it launches on October 19, 2023 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
These modes include:
Elimination: A mode where the slowest racers are eliminated every few seconds
Drift Master: A mode where players have to maintain precision and style to gain points
Waypoint: A mode where players have to explore and uncover secrets, and learn the fastest way through areas
Grab the Gears: A mode that sees players battle against each other to collect as many Gears as possible
Clash Derby: An online duel mode for Monster Trucks only, that sees players battling it out
Alongside the new modes, the game will also once again feature a single-player campaign, albeit a more enhanced one. The campaign takes players back into the city with protagonists Robert and Darla as well as their robot assistant XR046. The campaign will see the trio tasked with saving the day after Professor Tanabe accidentally releases creatures onto the city.
Returning from the original game will be the ability for players to create their content, with Milestone noting that things have been taken to the extreme this time around. A new, refined Track Editor has been added into the game that includes special modules and features that will allow for even more diverse user-generated tracks. All user-generated content will also be shareable cross-platform from day one of the game too, so players will have access to the best tracks.
