Fast & Furious Crossroads
With Fast & Furious Crossroads, the story line revolves around a group of teenagers who must escape the cops and go on the edge of an infamous race track to find out who done it. The teens team up to take on this task as they have to survive the events that unfold. This game is considered to be the spiritual sequel of the movie franchise. The game will offer players the option of choosing from a wide range of stunt drivers, street racers, and other vehicles used in the film. Each character in the game will have his or her own set of skills and special techniques that can help the player customize their own character and compete with other online users in a multiplayer mode.
Not only will the game offer the opportunity to enjoy the Fast & Furious films, but it will also provide an opportunity for gamers to have a chance to experience the cast of characters from the Fast & Furious films. Players can choose from various trucks and tracks while racing to score as much points as possible. The PlayStation 2 will be used to take the game live by allowing players to connect to the Internet immediately after the initial download. Online play will be supported by a multitude of web browsers including Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome. Fast & Furious Crossroads will be available for free when it goes available for download on Tuesday, April 3rd.
The Multiplayer Saga
Some people might be hesitant to purchase a video game console based off of a popular film franchise like Fast & Furious because they don’t want to feel attached to any of the characters. However, with the release of Fast & Furious Crossroads, that reluctance will no longer exist. This new chapter in the fast & furious saga will allow players to take control of one of the characters from the series and let them experience all the adventures that can be found on the silver screen. With a new trailer showing some of the key moments in the film, players will be able to see what fans have been waiting for. This new chapter of the Fast & Furious series promises to be even more exciting than the previous instalment.
There are many of the same faces from the first film, except for those that were killed in the second film. Newcomer Dylan O’Brien plays Agent John B. casing, who was promoted to a supervisor position following the death of his brother. During a meeting with Deckard, John B. tries to put an end to an impromptu contest between local dealers after the police discover the illegal street drugs located on his car. In order to cover his tracks, he has his partner, officer Jackie Earle Haley, accompany him to the event, where he can confront and kill Bork. In the meantime, old friend Bleecker finds out that Deckard is hiding something else and has his own suspicions about the events of the day.
The multiplayer of Fast & Furious Crossroads can be played by up to four players – although only three are listed in the online gallery. There is a brief intro video at the start of the gallery which gives a brief overview of the story. Then there is an option menu which lets players change various features of the game, such as controlling specific vehicles, creating custom content and controlling specific settings. Some quick hints about how to play the game can also be seen at the bottom of the page.
