The post-release DLC plan for Hot Wheels Unleashed is about to step up a notch, with a new expansion and season both on the way soon.
The DC Super-Villains Racing Season will include a new set of missions to complete. In doing so, you will unlock new themed vehicles and free and premium coins, gears and customization items. Think of this like Fall Guys, Rocket League or F1 2021 seasonal content where you can earn items for free by completing challenges, or additional trinkets provided you pay for the premium tier.
The new season starts on 11th November 11 2021 and ends 18th January 18 2022. There will be six vehicles to unlock, all based around infamous DC Comics antiheroes.
Alongside the season will be the Batman Expansion. This is a dedicated paid-for DLC pack that includes an all-new Batcave environment to create levels within – and in its 1/64th scale, it’s looks, at first glance, pretty incredible. The miniaturised Gotham City-based area even includes a new obstacle module – the Joker Funhouse Split.
To go along with this new environment, there will be five new Batman-themed vehicles and Basement customisation items.
You will be able to buy the Batman Expansion outright on 2nd December 2021, or as part of the ongoing Hot Wheels Unleashed Pass Vol.1 that also includes 10 additional vehicles, three customisation packs and two Track Builder modules for £24.99/$29.99.
If that all sounds a little confusing, we’ve broken that down for you below. There’s a huge amount of downloadable content coming for Hot Wheels Unleashed, and remember, this is just Vol.1. There will be three volumes in total. Stay tuned to Traxion.GG to see what’s included in each.
