Bandai Namco, Universal Games, and Slightly Mad Studios have announced Fast & Furious Crossroads, a new team-based, vehicular-heist action game set in the Fast & Furious universe.
Fast & Furious Crossroads features an authentic storyline packed with heroes, gadgets, cars, and non-stop cinematic action. The game intends to deliver pulse-pounding gameplay for both solo players and in a soon-to-be-revealed multiplayer mode.
The game’s story mode expands on the Fast & Furious universe, with performances by Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, and Tyrese Gibson—reprising their roles as Dom, Letty, and Roman in an action-packed adventure set across multiple global locations. Joining the cast for this game are Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead), and Asia Kate Dillon (BILLIONS, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum).
Traveling from the streets of exotic locations to the dangerous world of international espionage, players will pull off high-speed heists and stunts, seeking to take down a new threat.
“Fast & Furious remains one of the most beloved franchises of all time and continues to innovate in extraordinary ways,” said Jim Molinets, SVP of Production, Universal Games and Digital Platforms. “Fast & Furious Crossroads is an authentic experience that stays true to the series by amplifying the signature elements that fans love – a star-studded cast, high-stakes story, over-the-top action, deep family ties and, of course, fast cars.”
“We are thrilled to have Fast & Furious Crossroads as a tentpole offering in Bandai Namco Entertainment’s family of titles for 2020,” Chris Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc commented. “The action-packed gameplay, all-star voiceover cast, and authentic Fast & Furious experience continues our mantra of delivering ‘more fun for everyone’ and is an exciting addition to our robust catalogue of entertainment for fans of all ages.”
Andy Tudor, Chief Creative Officer at Slightly Mad Studios said: “As huge fans of the franchise, it’s an honor to be able to expand the Fast & Furious franchise into the world of video games with a brand new story, the introduction of a new crew with ties to beloved characters, and iconic and stunning set pieces. With Easter eggs throughout for fans and an intense multiplayer experience, Fast & Furious Crossroads is a thrilling collision course that puts players behind the wheel.”
