About Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged:
In Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged, fun comes in many forms. Race through action-packed tracks that span innocuous rooms in a home, arcades, and backyards with gravity-defying style or test your skills in no-holds-barred battles against other players or extreme challenges.
Along with fan-favorite modes from the original Hot Wheels Unleashed, five brand-new game modes will expand and diversify the racing experience.
In the new Elimination mode, players will need to rely on their survival instincts. Every few seconds, the slowest vehicles will be eliminated from the race, urging players to drive carefully, deciding when they should make a leap for the lead and when they should save their boost. Driftaholics can put their tires to the test in the Drift Master mode, where players will have to maintain precision and style to amass points and dominate their drifting competition.
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged will feature five different environments, and the Waypoint mode will let players explore and uncover all their secrets. In this mode, players can drive off the iconic orange tracks of the game’s intricate courses and immerse themselves in free-roaming action, where creativity and curiosity will be crucial to discovering the shortest paths through checkpoints.
Staying off the tracks, the Grab the Gears mode offers a perfect blend of racing skills, strategy, and a touch of frenzied action, as players will engage in thrilling online battles to collect as many Gears as possible within an open area. Lastly, chaos will reign supreme in the Clash Derby mode, the ultimate online duel for monster trucks only, where players will seize supremacy of the arena by doing what monster trucks do best: smashing into each other.
A Captivating Story for Career Mode:
Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged will bring players back to the city, where our new protagonists Robert and Darla, alongside their robotic assistant XR046, are called to save the day and restore peace after a series of creatures are mistakenly released by Professor Tanabe.
