The Fast Family is coming to a gaming console (or PC) near you next year. Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez popped by the Game Awards to announced Fast & Furious Crossroads, a new video game taking place in the same universe as the popular action movie franchise. The game is being developed by Slightly Mad Studios, with Bandai Namco set to handle publishing. While the idea of a Fast & Furious game, on the surface, doesn't seem like a bad idea, the reveal didn't go over too well.

A trailer for the video game was showcased. It doesn't reveal much, in terms of what players will be doing, but it does feature cars speeding fast and furiously, with plenty of action and a few one-liners. Many on social media were quick to criticize the graphics and character renderings, saying that it looks more like a PS2 game. Setting that aside, it does look like one of the more recent movies in video game form.

In Fast & Furious Crossroads, players will 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. Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez will reprise their roles as Dom and Letty, respectively. Tyrese Gibson is also on board as Roman Pierce. Sonequa Martin-Green (Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead) and Asia Kate Dillon (Billions, John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum) are also included in the cast. Andy Tudor, Chief Creative Officer, Slightly Mad Studios, had this to say in a statement.

"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."

The game will feature a single-player story mode and a soon-to-be-revealed multiplayer mode. There is no word currently on what the multiplayer mode will entail. Jim Molinets, Senior Vice President of Production at Universal Games and Digital Platforms, had this to say in a statement.

"Fast & Furious remains one of the most beloved franchises of all time and continues to innovate in extraordinary ways. 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."

Fast & Furious, across eight main entries and this year's spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, has grossed $5.9 billion at the global box office. Fast & Furious 9 is set to hit theaters next year, with a tenth entry already being planned as well. Fast & Furious Crossroads arrives in May 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Be sure to check out the trailer for yourself. We've also included some Twitter reactions to the game. This news comes to us via FastAndFuriousCrossroads.com.
