Growing up, it was great to play with toy cars and build unique tracks to race on. With Hot Wheels Unleashedthe developers wanted players to have the same feeling of being able to race in these cool vehicles and create tracks on which they would be featured.

Of course, being able to build the tracks can be a lot of fun because Hot Wheels Unleashed provides a plethora of tools to use for the track and different environments to use as scenery. But there are some who just want to race on the custom tracks and there are a few steps to follow to do so.


Where to find Custom Tracks

Upon starting the game, players will see two different ways to navigate the menu. First, there is a list of vertical options which include campaign mode and multiplayer. Then there is a list of options at the top left that can be cycled through. Those who want to search for custom tracks should go to “Track Builder”. Once here, select “Community Tracks”.

From here, players can browse all custom tracks under the “All” menu. To find the most popular custom tracks, check out the “Most Likes” tab which will focus on the most liked tracks of all time. “Most Liked Weekly” and “Most Liked Monthly” examine the most popular tracks in a much shorter time frame, especially in more recent times.

To save a track before it disappears from popular tabs, players can tap the button prompt at the bottom left of the screen that says “Add to Favorite Tracks”. This will add the course as it can be used by people under that profile under the “Favorites” tab. Keep in mind that these tracks can be tricky and will lead to lots of mistakes.

How to Play Custom Tracks

Current custom track playback options are limited to a few modes. For those playing solo, the only way to experience the course is to go to “Quick Modes” in the menu at the top of the main screen and select “Time Attack”.

Once on the course selection screen in this mode, players will see a button prompt in the bottom left that says “Community Tracks”. This will bring up all the custom tracks readily available in-game, including a section for favorites. This mode allows the rider to race the course but without any other riders, just trying to get the best time on the course.

For those who want to play a track with multiple people, they must do so online. Those playing randomly with others will see custom tracks appear as potential options before a race. However, those running private lobbies will be able to choose from their community tracks if they wish by following the same process on the course selection screen.

At the moment, there is no option to do single-player quick races or split-screen local multiplayer with the custom courses. It is unknown at this time if this will come in a future update.

Hot Wheels Unleashed is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
