The iconic voices of the Fast & Furious characters help bring movie-like moments to life as players race and battle against their friends, family or the A.I. characters in two meticulously detailed robotic Supercars inspired by the high-octane vehicles from the films, including:
- International MXT– Hobbs’ iconic truck drives like its owner: Tough and steady. It rolls over obstacles, protected by its plated armor. The MXT’s weapons are blunt and direct, causing massive destruction. Its primary weapon, the rocket launcher, fires a deadly missile with a huge area of effect that wipes out everything in its path.
- Ice Charger– Dominic Toretto built his car for one purpose: Speed. He has no problem playing fast and loose, so long as he wins. Dom’s Ice Charger uses a Grappling Hook to gain advantage. Fire it into cars to pull yourself closer and slow down opponents.
With Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition, even the modular track pieces get more furious. Exclusive to the game is a new Power Zone track piece that triggers a massive “hack” that disables nearby opponents when players drive through it.
Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition is compatible with the existing Anki OVERDRIVE product ecosystem, including previously released Supercars and Expansion Kits. In order to play, the game requires a separate, free-to-download Anki OVERDRIVE: Fast & Furious Edition app for iOS, Android or Fire OS, and compatible device (see here for list of compatible devices).
