Batman Invades Hot Wheels Unleashed in Latest Expansion Pack

Hot Wheels Unleashed: Batman

Batman will finally land in Hot Wheels Unleashed ! You can only imagine the team’s excitement when we managed to have a chance to work with DC Comics… with the Batman himself! All the dev team was trembling in excitement to see what kind of amazing stuff we could do. People started to instantly brainstorm ideas, pitching concepts about the environment, finding new cars to add and, last but not least, creating a new module for the Track Editor!

The Batcave was one of the biggest and most challenging features we had to face. Its creation took a lot of time and effort, trying to recreate the same vibes that people are used to when they refer to the Batman. The Batmobile was one of the main pillars around the entire environment had to revolve around: we wanted to recreate it at its finest, so that players could sprint, drift and race all around it, spotting all the small details that make it so unique and fascinating.

I may not say this, but I suggest you to explore the entire Batcave, though: we had the chance to sneak in some nice Easter Eggs directly from the DC Comics world that we think you’ll enjoy. I’d love to see if you’ll manage to find them all.

With heroes you can expect villains as well: that is why, together with the Robin 2.0T, Batman Rebirth, and Armored Batman cars, you’ll get The Penguin and The Joker GT. Get ready to compete with your friends and see who’s the fastest!

On top of all of this, we’ll be adding the Joker Funhouse Split: this is a new animated module for the Track Editor that you’ll see inside some of the tracks that we’ve created specifically for the Batcave. The Joker Funhouse Split will keep on your toes as you’ll have to decide which side to race around the Joker while his hammers will smash you into the ground or send you flying!

Working with DC Comics and being able to portray the amazing Batman’s Batcave and some of the different car’s from DC Comics has been an honor and it was fun to see this world getting together with Hot Wheels. Hope you’ll enjoy racing in the Batcave at least as much as we enjoyed creating it! The Hot Wheels – Batman Expansion is available now on the Xbox Store.
