The "Fast & Furious" fandom was dealt a crushing blow late last month with the passing of Paul Walker, who portrayed Brian O'Conner in the "Fast & Furious" film series. But with all due respect to the departed actor, the show must go on for the rest of the "Fast & Furious" crew. And the same goes for the official game of the latest installment in the series, Fast & Furious 6: The Game. Fast & Furious: The Game has just been issued another update, and the update happens to be a holiday-themed one. Most notably, it sees the arrival of snow through the London street racing scene. In line with this, the update also equips players with "snow tires." If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. In addition, it decks the Garage out in holiday lights. It also introduces new holiday-themed vinyls and decals from the Garagae, the tournament, and the Bonus Boxes given out by Brian's friend, Tej Parker. Tej's Bonus Boxes, by the way, are now presents that you can unwrap. The new holiday-themed version of Fast & Furious 6: The Game is available now in the App Store for free. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 4.3 or later. Fast & Furious 6: The Game is developed by Kabam, the same studio behind The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth. The official iOS game of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" trilogy, The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth was updated by Kabam last week with an expansion pack based on "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug."
