Fast & Furious 6: The Game debuted for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, with an Android release coming soon on Google Play. Developed in Vancouver, British Columbia by Kabam’s Exploding Barrel Games Studio, Fast & Furious 6: The Game takes players to London in a plotline that runs parallel to the upcoming blockbuster film from Universal Pictures.
Fast & Furious 6: The Game is Kabam’s first free-to-play racing title, and joins the company’s existing mobile megahits that include Kingdoms of Camelot: Battle for the North, a top 10 franchise that has grossed $200 million in less than four years, and The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-earth, which is a top ten grossing game on iOS worldwide and within the top 15 grossing games on Google Play worldwide, according to the App Annie Index. Fast & Furious 6: The Game is also Kabam’s first title to be translated into Japanese, Korean and Chinese.
“We’re exceptionally proud of what the Kabam team in Vancouver has accomplished with this game,” said Andrew Sheppard, president of Kabam Studios. “It is truly one of the highest quality games on a tablet or smartphone.”
“Kabam’s first foray into the racing genre is nothing short of sensational,” Sheppard continued. “From the console-quality graphics to the unique take on street racing, this game exhilarates the player and leaves the competition stalled in its tracks.”
The game transports players to the high-octane world of Fast & Furious 6 in a storyline that runs parallel to the film’s plot. Players will race alongside well-known characters from the new film, drag racing and drifting their way through a series of intense street races and breathtaking heists. Additionally, players will be able to customize their cars with decals and original paintjobs, as well as acquire different vehicles from such manufacturers as BMW, Honda, Dodge and Ford.
