BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe, Universal Games and Digital Platforms, and Slightly Mad Studios today revealed the first gameplay showcasing the single player story mode of Fast & Furious Crossroads, a team-based, vehicular-heist action game set in the adrenaline-fueled Fast & Furious universe.
The Fast & Furious Crossroads story mode expands the Fast & Furious universe—with Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson reprising their roles as Dom, Letty, and Roman in an action-packed adventure set across stunning global locations, including Athens, Barcelona and Morocco. Joining the cast are Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead) and Asia Kate Dillon (Billions, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum).
Fast & Furious Crossroads puts players in the driver’s seat of the non-stop cinematic-style action of the Fast & Furious franchise. Packed with gadgets, death defying heists and iconic vehicles, the game will provide fans with an exciting story-driven experience, and an unprecedented three-way multiplayer mode, on which more information will be shared in the coming weeks.
From the trailer, I’m getting an old-school arcade racer kind of feel. It’s a genre that’s been sorely missed from this generation of consoles which seemed to have focused on realistic driving simulators. The three-way multiplayer feature is especially intriguing and no doubt will be a highlight of the game. Crossroads certainly more in line with the over-the-top, exaggerated scenarios seen in the later films than the series’ street racing origins and personally this is a good thing.
It’ll be interesting to see how some of these cars handle and whether your car selection (if that’s even a possibility) will make an impact on the frenetic-looking challenges. Speaking of which, they look positively preposterous, with exactly the kind of irresponsible driving we’ve come to expect from Dom & Co.
Swerving through rocket flames? Avoiding catastrophic rock slides? Jumping over terrifying giant earth saws? Count me in!
