Mattel and Milestone showed today a deep dive dedicated to the Track Builder, a brand new game mode for Hot Wheels Unleashed™ where players can express themselves thanks to an editor without limits.
The Track Builder is the same tool that Milestone’s designers used to the create the game’s tracks, this means that players have in their hands all the powers to unleash their creativity.
Players will learn how to get control of the iconic orange track modules, the backbone of all the adrenaline races. Twisting, bending, stretching and finally placing every available modules is now part of the pure racing fun experience!
For the occasion, Federico Cardini, Lead Game Designer for Hot Wheels Unleashed, presents a deep dive dedicated to how the Track Builder works. After more than two years of development, the final result allows players to create crazy tracks in an extremely easy way, starting from choosing one of the environments available in the game, including the Track Room, a special stage designed specifically to showcase the freedom of the Track Builder, thanks to an empty big space without any kind of limits or obstacles.
Any element of the environments could potentially be part of the track, this means that players can mix track modules with stage’s objects in order to create dynamic and unpredictable races.
Players will also have the chance to bring their tracks to the next level, thanks to the special Track Builder Modules. More than 20 amazing modules are available, such as T-Rex Escape, Spider Ambush, Hungry Cobra, those will make the tracks even more unique, insane and challenging.
The Track Builder also features the chance to share creations with the world or enjoy the tracks made by other crazy players. Being part of the community means having the chance to become an extraordinary designer or simply a racer always looking for new adrenaline and unpredictable challenges..
Finally, the new videos unveiled seven new vehicles out of the 60+ available on day 1. They are: 24 Ours™, Off-Duty™, Supercharged™, RocketFire™, Street Creeper™, Surf 'N Turf™, Tricera-Truck.
Hot Wheels Unleashed offers players the opportunity to drive the cars as if they were playing with the die-cast toys.
