Velan Studios and Mattel have partnered to create a new mixed-reality racing game called Hot Wheels: Rift Rally, which can transform your living room into a racetrack. The game has recently been released after a slight delay and is available in two versions, a standard edition and a collector’s edition, priced at £129.99 and £149.99, respectively. Both editions can be purchased on riftrally.com, Amazon, and GameStop.
Hot Wheels: Rift Rally employs Velan Studios’ mixed reality technology, which merges the physical world with a digital environment to simulate various speedways. Gamers have the opportunity to engage in a plethora of activities, including mini-games, puzzles, challenges, races, stunts, and others, using the Chameleon RC car, which boasts more than 140 vehicle permutations in-game. The game has both solo and multiplayer sessions, including a campaign mode and a Stunt Mode, where players can perform drifts, wheelies, and burnouts for rewards.
In addition to new vehicles created specifically for Hot Wheels: Rift Rally, the game features some classic Hot Wheels vehicles. The Chameleon RC car has the ability to convert into various models, including Bone Shaker, Gotta GO, Mach Speeder, and the Twin Mill. According to Mike DeLeaet, Mattel’s Global Head of Digital Gaming, Velan Studios has created an imaginative Hot Wheels experience that blends digital and physical play, keeping the brand ahead of the curve and resonating with fans.
