Anki, the robotics and artificial intelligence (A.I.) company, has announced Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition has arrived on store shelves in the UK.
Anki Overdrive: Fast & Furious Edition features two highly detailed robotic Supercars based on the high-octane vehicles favored by the characters in the films:
- 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.

Each Supercar is armed with unique weapons, upgrades, sound effects, and controls. Within the game, players will battle alongside and against mainstay characters from the films including Dom, Hobbs, Letty, and Tej. 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.
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.
