Hot Wheels Unleashed will have a track editor, which is great news for anyone who wants to play it like a 21st century. Tricks (I). It is the exact editor that Milestone uses to create the game’s ready-made tracks. You’ll choose an environment, set your track, spray it with boost pads, obstacles, and too many loop-de-loops, and then share it online to get rave reviews.
The video above shows you how the editor works, and if you’ve dabbled in creating tracks for Trackmania, it will look familiar. The environments are the same as you will see in the main game, with built-in obstacles, but otherwise you are free to go crazy. There’s also a blank slate environment called the Track Room, if you don’t like having to build around a giant skate park or gigantic college campus.
Tracks can be customized based on your color schemes, and there are a variety of items to use (promising, looks like you can make giant boost pads). But rest assured, the community tracks won’t be littered with impossible feats – to upload a track, you must complete it.
Phil got down to business with Hot Wheels Unleashed recently, writing that it’s reminiscent of the “glory days of mid-budget racers,” which is music to my ears.
