Yes. Fast & Furious 6 is a thing, and it'll be launching in cinemas and multiplexes the world over on May 24th. And to tie-in with the theatrical release of the sixth film in the street racing series, Activision is to publish Fast & Furious: Showdown, which has you racing in "some of the hottest vehicles" across "epic locations around the globe."

Featuring two-player co-op, Fast & Furious: Showdown has you teaming up for a variety of "high-stakes" driving missions, with the ability to switch between the role of driver, gunman, tactician or daredevil. You can build and customise your own 'dream car' with upgrades and performance mods, while the Challenge Mode includes objectives to complete with online leaderboards to compete on.

Fast & Furious: Showdown will release ahead of the movie starring Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and the rest of the old Fast & Furious gang. The movie releases on May 24th, whereas the game launches on May 21st, 2013 for $39.99. Check out the first three screens below.

Well at least the game won't be selling at full retail because the screenshots don't do this game justice.

Mowshun blerrr 2 hied deeee GRAYFICKS.

See, we could have a really good F&F title that could span the whole film series.. But there's about as much chance of that happening as a 'Good' Need for Speed reboot.. Underground 2 will still hold the 'Closest to a Fast and Furious' title

"launches for $39.99."

A sign of quality going by Survival Instincts and Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior reviews

Son of a bitch, how hard was this supposed to be? I would have just picked up the phone, called Raw Thrills, and asked for a port of their Fast & Furious Super Cars arcade game.

If your not going to even attempt to make licensed games to a good standard then why bother making them in the first place? Oh yeah because all you care about are sale figures and profit. Seriously I know EA isn't a great company but Activision should have won the award for worst company in America.

This looks terrible, bad graphics and bad premise. Maybe pick it up at under $10 in 6 months.

Personally, graphics don't mean a damn thing to me.

The only thing that I care about is the gameplay.. Granted, the screens do the game no justice..

But I refuse to give the game anything positive and or negative until I see a gameplay trailer.

Until then, I just have to sit here and wait patiently.. Which sucks major ass.. -_-

I am expect Activision will closed down Firebrand Games when game didn't sells very well. But we know this will happen if game didn't sells well. Activision alway closed down their studios.

I like Fast Furious movies and first and 2nd series is better and rest of other series is crap and letdown. I unsure if game is live up to from what movie is.

Screenshots of game look ok. I guess this one will be medicore or below. Look at The Walking Dead that Activision released last month and it is poor. I guess this is another crap movie / tv ties in from Activision. :)

Fast and Furious should be the name of this game's development cycle.

If only this wasn't being rushed out. You could do something decent with the F&F license. Make a game similar to NFS:U 1 and 2.

More I look on those screens, more i'm getting a feeling, that it will definitely suck. C'mon, Safe motive from F&F 5 movie in second picture, give me a break. Still better would be to cancel this shit project.

i think the first F&F game for PS2 looked better than this. Wait for Forza Motorsport 5
