Earlier on this month, a new Hot Wheels game appeared on the Microsoft Store, touting the most exciting track creator ever. With the ability to bend and stretch the track to how you want it, adding in loops and other special elements, it sounded like it could be just what I was hoping for. All that was missing was the price and release date.
Yesterday, a countdown to a trailer appeared, and it seemed like it would be time to see just what this game looked to be. And in that one minute trailer, I saw what I needed to. While it started all fancy showing a car looking out at a city during the night (or so you’d think until it got lit up), it then gets into showing off what the game is to be like. Loops, oil slicks, a variety of vehicles slamming and bashing into each other, and then… everything we see is a custom created track.
Just from a few seconds of cycling through a few of the special pieces to then arrive at the standard track – which then gets curved before it gets placed, gives a good idea of just how versatile the creator will be. Well, along with the routes seen throughout the trailer. Another feature available is to make track that runs upside down and have the cars stick to it with special strips. If a car gets pushed out from that strip, it falls.
