Fill the Batcave with toy cars and plastic race tracks in Hot Wheels Unleashed’s first expansion

Hot Wheels Unleashed has confirmed to be a surprisingly enjoyable little racer, channeling the spirit of Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road shenanigans throughout a whole $50 sport. 

Unleashed obtained its first substantial DLC yesterday with the launch of its Batman expansion. $15 nets you 5 cars, some customization choices, and, most crucially, a Batcave stage to construct your tracks in. From the official web site:

“A implausible new atmosphere is ready so that you can race and construct tracks worthy of this epic problem between good and evil, with a brand new themed module! Explore the secrets and techniques of the Batcave, by way of hi-tech units, rocks and after all… the Batmobile! Plus, new customization objects impressed by the world of Batman to your Basement and your Unleashed Profile!”


The thought of constructing Hotwheels tracks in the Batcave actually tickles my fancy. It’s a enjoyable, lovingly-crafted illustration of the World’s Greatest Detective’s very severe and vital workplace, and we get to fill it with foolish little toy race tracks with die-cast Batmobiles zipping round.

Join me in my thoughts palace the place Bruce Wayne is tripping over the toys we have left strewn round, or higher but, the place he is huddled over a observe in full Bat-regalia, prepping for a race. It’s virtually a funnier picture than Batman fighting shirtless and still wearing his cowl.

Still, it is a bit of laborious to suggest at this worth, and should you’re completely recent to Hotwheels Unleashed, you are a $65 minimal buy-in to expertise some Bat-goodness. While they seem to be a couple years outdated and do not have as many bells and whistles, Ubisoft Nadeo’s Trackmania video games provide comparable loop de loop arcade racer goodness at a decrease value, significantly Trackmania² Stadium, which is at the moment simply $10 on Steam.
