With Fast & Furious: Crossroads set to release on in August on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, we think that there’s a chance it’s predecessor could pop up.

Fast & Furious: Showdown is the 2013 instalment in the series, and it would be great to get a taste of the gameplay for free ahead of the big reveal.

SHOWDOWN: The original entry in the Fast & Furious series would be a treat!

On the topic of 2013, we saw a Halo title feature as a free title for a whole month.


It would be fitting if Halo 3 was free to play in August, especially since it is a Microsoft IP and Halo: Infinite was announced at Xbox Series X showcase.

One option could be Forza Motorsport 4 - especially with the huge announcement on the newest version of the game. Now would be a great time to remind players how far the series has come!

The way that the dates are lined up for August, we're expecting the line up to be revealed on Tuesday 28 July.
