Activision reportedly working on upcoming Wii U, PS3, and Xbox 360 game to coincide with launch of Fast and Furious 6 this May.
A new Fast and Furious game may be on the way from Activision. CVG spotted EB Games listings for Fast and Furious: Showdown, which suggest the unannounced action game will launch for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U this May to coincide with the theatrical release of Fast and Furious 6.
An Australian Classifications Board rating for Fast and Furious: Showdown indicates Firebrand Games is developing the title for Activision. The studio, which has offices in Scotland, Florida, and Louisiana, previously developed NASCAR Unleashed and the Wii and 3DS versions of Need for Speed: The Run, among other titles.
According to the Fast and Furious: Showdown product description, the game will feature heists, hijacking, and shootouts in a storyline that bridges the events from Fast 5 and previous movies to the upcoming Fast and Furious 6
The game will reportedly feature 31 missions played across eight chapters set in eight different locations from around the world. The game's description reveals Fast and Furious: Showdown will feature mission objectives, including winning races, hijacking vehicles, and stealing cargo, among others.
Fast and Furious: Showdown has not been announced and an Activision representative was not immediately available to comment.
Movie based game, from the developers of a NASCAR game, and it's overpriced? WELL WHY DON'T YOU JUST TAKE MY MONEY ALREADY!
I guess that anal-yst who said that next gen console games would be around 70$ was wrong at all. But I don't totally blame it on developers. Some console humpers always bring this argument that once you buy the console, you don't need any hardware upgrades like PC huhu.
I want to know who owns the rights the arcade game. I used to see it in bus stations a lot, but it was a ton of fun. I'd buy an eShop or XBL version in a heartbeat.
@mediarays This is what people with a brain will do.
@mediarays @TheCyborgNinja Codemasters is the best. The only problem with GRID 1 was the lack of content, but this looks to fix it. There's really no other competition left for it now, PGR4 was the last somewhat similar experience. I find the super-arcadey stuff and the dry, GT5 stuff unfun. I can't wait.
i love f&f but not sure ima get this game i would really like a real street racing game like NFS underground 3 i would rather pay 68 bucks for somthing like that
68 bucks for a Fast and Furious game? Only way I'm paying more for a movie game, especially 8 bucks over standard prices, is if I get to punch Vin Diesel.
So now they're making a need for speed movie and a fast and furious game (along with another movie). I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
Hopefully this game will have no less than 30,000 references to "NOS" and 60,000 mechanical inaccuracies. I remember seeing the first movie and after the first drag race Vin Diesel was telling the other guy that he was "not double-clutching like he should". Double clutching is for downshifting to increase the motor speed so it more closely matches the speed of the input shaft of the transmission. Last I checked, you don't downshift much in a straight line drag race.
If the gameplay here is similar to Nascar Unleashed, get ready for lots of speed, insane crashes, car loops... and no realism at all.
All I wanted was another Need for Speed: Most wanted. Then another game came out with the same exact name!! Wasn't what I wanted... I was hoping maybe this would be it until I saw the "shooting" part.
I miss the days of illegal street racing/car mods/losing the cop in more interesting ways. Heck even the story for NFS:MW was better than all the following games.
I hope there'll be a ps2 version =P
I've got the other Fast and the Furious game on ps2 and I like it alot, could have a bit more depth though, like with the ones you race.
I'd really like it if the characters were like the ones on Midnight Club 2, that's varied, cool, cheesy, stereotype and over the top, just fun that way to me haha =)
mmmmmmmmmm $68 there pushing it to see if people will pay that kind of money as its already said that next gen games will be around the $70 mark in the US. So people don't buy this game if its $68 as then they will no that will will not buy them at $70.
@nairz 90 dollars for a new release? It's similar to Brazilian prices...
@nairz In Brazil we pay 100$ :(
@nairz thats insane dude....how are wages out there?? im in nyc, the ratio of cost of living:wages is pretty bad, but i would definitely have a hard time paying $90 for a game regardless of how much i was making!
