Hot Wheel: Rift Rally official release trailer

The trailer of Rift Rally reveals gameplay images of the game from Velan Studios. It shows two players and their vehicles, racing and preparing the track.

On the gameplay side, several important points are presented in the trailer:

  • Mixed reality of the circuit and your remote controlled vehicle;
  • Customize your vehicle in its virtual version, such as color, model and decoration. Of course, this will not change its real appearance, but your custom car will be visible on the screen during the race!
  • Doors to be placed on the ground to create a course of your choice, on a relatively flat surface;
  • And various environments and objects to use to affect the race of your opponent or boost your car Hot Wheels: Rift Rally to come first.

Game Modes: Campaign & Stunt

In its release trailer, Hot Wheels: Rift Rally does not really mention the possible game modes. However, you will be able to discover the Campaign mode and the Stunt mode. In campaign mode, you can play alone or with others (alternating vehicle control) on your own custom track with your doors. You can also compete with your friends in Rift Rally challenge on Playstation and mobile up to 4 players at the same time.

The Stunt mode focuses on freestyle. In-game, practice impressive tricks. Your score will increase and you won't need to focus on the gates since there is no track in Stunt mode. Campaign and Stunt are the only two modes available at the release of Hot Wheels: Rift Rally. In parallel, we would have liked to see time trials or other challenge variants.

Rift Rally replaces Knockout City

While we're thrilled to be able to announce the release date for Hot Wheels: Rift Rally, it comes at the cost of another game. Last week, Velan Studios said that its game Knockout City would close in June 2023. Knockout City is a multiplayer shooter in which you have to knock out your opponents with accurate shots. Those who haven't tried it yet only have a few months left to do so.

Or they can also prepare for the release of Hot Wheels: Rift Rally in March! Check out the other best mobile car games in our dedicated top.

Yaya Yaya would never have spent a single cent on a mobile game. At least, that's what the legend says.
