Out today, this PS5, PS4 Hot Wheels game requires a toy car to play.
It seems to have flown completely under the radar, but Hot Wheels: Rift Rally has been released today on PS5 and PS4. From Waylon Studios, the makers of Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit (and, less appropriately, Knockout City), is a mixed reality arcade racer that turns your house into a customizable track.
In the box, you get the Chameleon RC car — so-called because you can customize how it looks in the game — and a set of gates, which you place on your floor to map out your race course. Via a camera on top of a remote-controlled car, you’ll drive through your own rooms and hallways on your TV screen. This is a new idea, so you have enough space to make it work.
As mentioned, the car can be customized to look different Hot Wheels favorites, and you can then drive through an entire campaign, engage in local multiplayer, and perform freestyle stunts like Can join other modes.
It looks like the game is currently only available in the US, where it retails for $129.99 (Standard) and $149.99 (Collector’s Edition). It is unclear if a wider release is planned at this stage.
