  1. EA have released the first pieces of information about this year’s new Need for Speed game. As stated in the title, the game will be called Need for Speed Payback and will release on November 10th.

    “Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, you and your crew are reunited by a search for vengeance against The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals, and cops.

    Your car is at the center of everything you do. Craft unique rides with deeper performance and visual customization than ever before. From intense missions to high stakes car battles to jaw dropping set piece moments, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat, action-driving fantasy.”

    Another positive is that the response to the trailer has been great so hopefully we will be getting the NFS game we have been waiting all these years for! We are set to receive more information at EA play which is just over a week away.

  2. Need for Speed Payback got a new gameplay showcase during EA Play, this mission titled “Highway Heist” involves the player taking down a truck which is transporting a multi-million dollar super-car. The player will switch between the three main characters within the game during the mission, this adds a new dimension to the game and is something we have never seen before in the NFS series.

    Check out the gameplay below -

  3. Car customisation was one of the more interesting features in the 2015 Need for Speed reboot, and Payback looks like it’ll bring it back in a big way.

    The trailer below talks more about the ‘derelict’ cars. These are old, abandoned cars Payback allows you to customise and turn into supercars when you find them.

    The feature sounds a bit like Forza Horizon’s Barn Finds, though the potential for crazier pairings is much stronger here.

    Players will find derelict parts scattered throughout the game world and once all the parts are found, the hunk of junk can be turned into stock. The player can that the customisation even further and turn the car into a "super build."

    Those who wish for something new with less sweat involved, can purchase a new vehicle from one of the dealerships located in Fortune Valley. Dealerships will specialise in Exotics, Classic, Muscle, Rally, Sports and Sports Compact vehicles.

    Part Shops will be set up in multiple locations as an alternative to earning parts through winning events. These shops are a good bet when it comes to finding something specific and available stock will rotate out. Performance parts and more visual items such as bonnets, spoilers, and fenders are examples of the merchandise and can be equipped on the spot.

    The garage is where storing cars and various automotive parts comes into play. Here, players can switch rides, sell their cars, change out parts, use the paint and wrap editor, and fix up the aforementioned derelict cars.

    Additional garages can be purchased and once all five garages are acquired, players will be granted access to the “unlimited virtual warehouse space,” which allows them to own unlimited vehicles.

    Of course, gas stations have returned in Need for Speed Payback. Just drive through and the car’s nitrous tank will be filled and damage will be fixed.

  4. Need for Speed Payback’s latest trailer shows off what players can do in its Fortune Valley setting.

    Cars may be the most important detail in racing games, but you shouldn’t forget about your setting either – especially in an open-world, heist-focused game like Need for Speed Payback. In that spirit, EA has just unveiled a new “Welcome to Fortune Valley” trailer that introduces the game world and the benefits of exploring its nooks and crannies.

    Outside of the gorgeous, Las Vegas-inspired environments, there are all kinds of gameplay elements players can uncover just by driving around. There are unlockable challenges and drag races to complete, many of which are tied to various in-game factions. There are also a variety of dealerships with new cars, tune-up shops with upgrades, and purchasable garages where you can quietly customize each of your rides. And if you’re looking for heist-based thrills, Payback has you covered with bait crate events where you race the police to reach an Escape Point with your loot.

    Perhaps the most intriguing elements of Payback, however, are the scrap. Hidden across the map are various derelict chassis and parts which can be collected, repaired, and assembled in your garage to use in all gameplay modes. The trailer implies these items are among the best of Payback, encouraging players to hunt every corner of the map for new equipment.
  5. The Need for Speed: Payback trial starts tomorrow, November 2 on PC through Origin Access, and Xbox One through EA Access. In a blog post, developer Ghost Games confirmed everything players can expect.

    In terms of story missions, the two opening chapters will be available to play, as well as the the Highway Heist mission they build up to. Multiplayer will be available, too, part of the Speedlists mode.

    As with every Play First trial, you’ll be given a maximum of ten hours of playtime before you have to buy the game. When you do, you’ll get a 10% discount and all your game progress will carry over since you’re downloading the full game.
