Developed by Slightly Mad Studios – yep, they behind Project Cars – Fast & Furious Crossroads has today been announced to arrive on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with a mid-2020 launch in the works.
May 2020 is the exact month in which we’ll be seeing the next immersive experience in the Fast & Furious franchise, as Bandai, Slightly Mad and Universal Games team up to deliver another adrenaline-fuelled vehicular-heist racer. Expanding the Fast & Furious saga, Crossroads will be found featuring voiceover performances from Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Tyrese Gibson, alongside an all-star cast of new crew members.
With the ninth Fast & Furious film due to hit cinemas come May 22nd 2020, we should expect to see the game arrive to accompany that, with the virtual offering providing an authentic storyline that is packed with heroes, gadgets, cars and non-stop cinematic-style action – across both a single player story, and a multiplayer mode.
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 adventure that is set across stunning global locations. Joining that cast are Sonequa Martin-Green (STAR TREK: Discovery, The Walking Dead) and Asia Kate Dillon (BILLIONS, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum), as players get the chance to travel from the streets of exotic locales to the murky world of international espionage, pulling off high-speed heists and stunts as they battle to take down a new threat.
