Fast & Furious cars are returning to Zynga’s CSR Racing 2, a mobile drag racing game that is one of the most popular racing games ever.

That means players will be able to access the iconic cars and characters from the Fast & Furious films.

Over the next few quarters, CSR Racing 2 will feature a series of Fast & Furious-themed events designed to keep current players engaged with the game and to revive lapsed players. It’s been about a year since the last Fast & Furious event in the game.

“The world of Fast & Furious is truly a global phenomenon, with amazing characters and stunning cars that audiences embrace on and off the movie screen,” said Julian Widdows, vice president of CSR2, in a statement. “Combining that with the proven, high-speed racing elements of CSR2 allows fans and players to get closer than ever to the heart of the Fast & Furious experience.”

The Fast & Furious features and events that players can enjoy include:

● Battle in races that once again bring Fast & Furious into the world of CSR2.
● Experience Fast & Furious characters such as Luke Hobbs, Deckard Shaw and Roman Pearce as they continue to drive the storyline while players compete in themed races — such as the “Shaw’s Pursuit” and “Hobbs’ Heist” challenges — to collect popular cars from the blockbuster franchise.
● Unlock and upgrade a range of Fast & Furious cars from earlier CSR2 Fast & Furious events.
● Collect cars including the Lamborghini Murciélago, Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, C-West Nissan Skyline GT-R (BNR34) and Veilside Honda S200.
● Race in competitive cups to win legendary cars from the Fast & Furious universe.
● Experience a new car from the film Fast & Furious 6, which will allow players to boost their lineup of popular vehicles.
● Compete against fellow Fast & Furious drivers in multiplayer action.
● Place Fast & Furious cars in real-world environments for a 360-degree view using CSR2s next-gen augmented reality experience, AR Mode, and discover hidden Easter eggs in the game.

The upcoming limited-time events include:

  • Hobbs Heist – March 21 – April 4
  • The Ice Charger March 22 – April 4
  • Ice Charger Cup March 22 – April 4
  • Shaw’s Pursuit April 11 – April 25
