The game looks absolutely incredible, and has many fans of the franchise excited for September!

With the game launching at £39.99, it really is shaping up to be a must-have for late 2021.

Crystal Clear Visuals

One of the biggest advantages to the next-gen consoles is that they can run games at 120 Hz and in 4K resolution. What this means is that you'll be able to play Hot Wheels Unleashed in Ultra-HD and silky smooth 120 FPS.

LITTLE CAR, BIG WORLD: The game seems to feature miniature cars in a life-size

You can tell how good this game is going to look just judging off the trailer, it looks incredible. After the gameplay trailer also, it's easy to confirm that the game does look awesome.

Of course, you'll need to have a TV or monitor that can handle that refresh rate and image quality, but they're pretty commonplace these days.

Loading Times

The next-gen consoles both have unbelievably quick loading times. Instead of taking close to a minute to boot up, games now take just a handful of seconds.

Will Unleashed be coming to One?

If you haven't managed to upgrade to next-gen yet, don't worry, Hot Wheels Unleashed will also be released on the Xbox One.

You won't be able to make use of the game's true potential though, as the high-end frame rate and 4K graphics can only be found on Series X|S. However, you'll still be able to get your hands on the title.
