While a decade later, “Torque” sadly remains without an official tie-in.
Eurogamer has pointed to an Aussie EB Games product page “Fast & Furious: Showdown,” a racer coming to the 360, PS3, and Wii U. According to the game description, “Showdown” would weave together the complex narrative of the upcoming sixth “Fast & Furious” film and the five that came before.
Promising 31 missions across eight chapters in eight global locations, “Showdown” sounds like it has a little bit of “Driver” (racing, chasing, heists) and a little bit of “Pursuit Force” (leaping between vehicles) mixed in. Every mission will offer co-op as players switch it up between the different characters in the franchise. If memory serves, this would be only the third game tied into the muscle car-obsessed series of films following racing games for both the PS2 and the arcades.
“Fast & Furious: Showdown” is dated for May 22 in Australia, meaning a release on the 21 for the U.S., right?
