Unfortunately, Milestone has not released the official patch notes for today’s update just yet. We expeting it to be for bug fixes more than anything else.

There is a Hot Wheels Unleashed design competittion on-going right now wheere players can see their in-game creations turn into physical die-cast models.

Details on that:

The contest runs between January 14, 2022 and February 14, 2022. Participants will design a livery for the Hot Wheels® Rodger Dodger™ die-cast model using the in-game Livery Editor. The winning Rodger Dodger will be transformed into a real Hot Wheels toy (scale 1:64) available for purchase globally in December 2022.
