Velan Studios and Mattel are launching Hot Wheels: Rift Rally, a new mixed reality racing experience. The game presents a unique Hot Wheels experience by combining the excitement of an AAA racing game with Velan’s R/C mixed reality tech. 

Players can get behind the wheel of their favorite Hot Wheels vehicles using the Chameleon R/C car that can digitally transform into more than 140 vehicle variations. This includes iconic Hot Wheels vehicles such as Twin Mill, Bone Shaker, Mach Speeder, Gotta Go, and many more fan-favorites, as well as several Rift Rally originals.

There are two ways to play Hot Wheels: Rift Rally. In Campaign Mode, players can set up Rift Gates to create a mixed reality track and explore maps where there are multiple challenges to complete. In Stunt Mode, players drive the Chameleon without gates as they chain together drifts, wheelies, and burnouts to earn high scores and rewards.
