Activision to release Fast & Furious: Showdown on May 22

Game to coincide with the theatrical release of Fast & Furious 6

With the Fast & Furious 6 hitting cinemas on June 6, Activision has announced the release of its Fast & Furious: Showdown game.

The racing title will be coming to both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 22, ahead of the film’s June release.

Fast & Furious: Showdown will let players get behind the wheel of the exotic vehicles the franchise is known for.

The vehicles can be raced across various locations around the globe, either in single player or teaming up in two-player co-op.

In the game’s Challenge Mode, players can test their skill at completing objectives and compare challenge scores with friends and gamers via an online leader board.

Beyond driving fast cars, Fast & Furious: Showdown lets players switch between key roles from driver, gunman, tactician, to daredevil.

Cars can also be built and modified with a variety of upgrades and performance perks.

Following the success of 2011’s Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6 brings back actors Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson in a story that focuses on the drivers’ inability to return home and living on the run.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
