Need for Speed: Payback

Postby Navid » 02 Jun 2017 13:20

Need for Speed returns in this explosive adventure is filled with intense heist missions, high stakes car battles, epic cop pursuits and jaw dropping set pieces. It’s blockbuster gameplay never before seen from the series, fueled by a gripping story of betrayal and revenge. With Need for Speed Payback, it’s no longer just about being the first to cross the finish line or racing to prove to be the best, it’s about building the perfect ride, getting behind the wheel and playing out an action driving fantasy.


Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, players will drive as three distinct characters reunited by a quest for vengeance against The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. They will take on a variety of challenges and events as Tyler, the Racer; Mac, the Showman; and Jess, the Wheelman to earn the respect of the underground. Featuring the deepest customization from the series, players can truly craft a personalized and unique ride, or spend hours finding and tuning an abandoned derelict into a supercar. They can then push their cars to the limit and raise the stakes by betting on their own performance, where they can either multiply their winnings or risk losing it all.

Release Date: November 10, 2017

It does remind you of Need For Fast And Furious Speed.

The Fast & Furious franchise is quite popular so could be decent angle for them.

Need a half decent racer in my life again, hopefully some gameplay at E3.

Edit: Saw first gameplay comeng 10th June

I like what i have seen of this. It has a real Rivals feel to it mixed with a Burnout Takedown vibe. Looking forward to seeing more & seeing what MP options there are.

That said, they tried story stuff in The Run which was AWFUL, so I'm not getting overly excited quite yet.

Damn, :choochoo: Not sure if that's a good thing (the hype that is) but there's definitely a Burnout / Rivals feel about it with extra stuff.

Would prefer it to sneak in under the radar and hit me but think I'm already looking forward to this.

Hopefully any story stuff is just a link to various types of missions and provides decent options for racing and exploration.

May not be something for everyone but I don't mind a bit of customisation. I do like the idea of picking up a derelict vehicle and making it a full on racer though.
