Milestone have announced a collaboration with Universal to bring iconic cars from the Fast & Furious franchise into the upcoming Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged.
As it turns out, a small easter egg within the latest film was actually a hint towards this crossover.
The DLC will be available day one and feature cars such as Dominic Toretto’s Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Widebody. There are also plans for more cars to come post-launch as well.
Here’s a rundown of the game, plus announcement trailer for the DLC:
