Is Hot Wheels Unleashed On Xbox Game Pass?

While Hot Wheels Unleashed was supposed to launch alongside the best games on Game Pass later this month, it appears that will no longer be the case. As legend warrior pointed out, the Xbox Wire article announcing the new Xbox Game Pass titles for December has been updated, removing Hot Wheels Unleashed from the announcement. 

An editor's note at the bottom of the post reads: "Hot Wheels Unleashed – Game of the Year Edition is no longer coming on December 15, 2022 as previously announced. We will update with a new date when we have more information to share."

There has yet to be an explanation given as to why Hot Wheel Unleashed will no longer be included in Game Pass alongside the ten other games announced for the service. We hope to hear more about the game from Microsoft soon, and we'll keep you updated.

What Makes The Removal More Interesting?

Hot Wheels Unleashed was included in the October PlayStation Plus games and is now available in PS Plus Extra. Many fans wonder if this is due to a licensing issue or if games on PS Plus cannot be immediately featured on Game Pass. Overall, fans will only have to wait for this game if Xbox Series users are willing to spend money on a licensed racer. Although it was not Forza, the game received favorable reviews upon its initial release and would have been a worthwhile try for fans of the old/current toys. Hot Wheels Unleashed is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Hot Wheels Unleashed

Milestone developed and published Hot Wheels Unleashed, a 2021 racing video game based on Mattel's toy line. On September 30, 2021, the game was released for the Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows. Hot Wheels Unleashed is a racing game played in the third person. In the game, the players take control of Hot Wheels vehicles and races against other players on miniature tracks set in various everyday locations and environments, such as a garage, kitchen, and bedroom. The vehicles in the game can be completely customized. At the start, 66 different cars were available. There is also a career mode, a time trial, and a track editor in the game. The game can support up to 12 players in an online session, but players can compete with another player in a local split-screen multiplayer mode.

Is Hot Wheels Unleashed free?

PlayStation fans (on PS4 and PS5) can pay monthly, quarterly, or yearly subscription fees, unlocking a Pandora's Box of free games. Fortunately for the world's 102 million active monthly PlayStation users, Hot Wheels Unleashed is free to play with your PS Plus Membership, even if you only have the Essential package. Injustice 2 (for PS4), a twisted take on heroes and villains duking it out in a DC universe through online/local play or an immersive single-player campaign as Batman, will also be released in October (PS4). Consider a first-person shooter where time only moves when you do.
