Need For Speed Payback Is On Its Way & Looking For The Perfect Ride

Need For Speed

A new Need For Speed title is on its way as Need For Speed Payback has been announced and aims to pull into our homes this coming November

Look out as we have a new driving game coming our way as Need For Speed Payback has been given the full announcement treatment and has already been given a release date for us to look to. The name may be a bit of a throw off for those who have been fans of the franchise for a while, but Payback is the latest from Ghost Games to come out for us on all the major platforms and coming on November 10th this year. Seems about right as there hasn't been much word on Need For Speed here in a while and now that we have word it makes sense to not have to wait too long to get it in our hands. All to experience a nice story mixed in from the point of view from three new characters as well. Not too shabby.

Along with the announcement for Need For Speed Payback is of course a nice new gameplay trailer that shows off just how the game and franchise have pushed the genre forward as it can. It is a bit fast and a bit too furious, but it is something that a large portion of gamers out there want and demand. That and we get to play for revenge, as the title alludes to, against The House and for various reasons. It almost sounds like a twisted version of Grand Theft Auto in that aspect when you get down and dirty with it all, but it is what it is currently. All while still focusing on your best ride that you can put together and drive around the game's world with.

Of course, pre-orders for Need For Speed Payback are already out there in the wild for you to go and purchase from. There are also a few different editions of the game to pick up which will score you five extra cars and another getting you said cars and the ability to play the game three days before everyone else. There are a few other cosmetic bonuses there too, but for the extra little cost you can get all of that and see it before anyone else can hop into the game. Hopefully there are a lot of gamers who want to do that too so you aren't just driving around some lonely streets out there.

Need For Speed Payback — Official Reveal Trailer

Ghost Games, an Electronic Arts studio, announced Need For Speed Payback, the new action driving blockbuster from one of the world’s bestselling video game franchises, hitting stores November 10th, worldwide. 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.

For players that pre-order the game, they will receive the Need For Speed Payback Platinum Car Pack and get instant access to five uniquely customized and tuned iconic cars at launch, each with exclusive Platinum Blue Tire Smoke. The Car Pack includes:

  • Nissan 350Z 2008
  • Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
  • Dodge Charger R/T 1969
  • Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
  • Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016

For drivers who want to get the extra edge over the competition, the Need For Speed Payback Deluxe Edition gives players up to three days of early access to the full game, along with exclusive customization items such as the Deluxe Edition license plate and NOS color, in-game discounts, Rep bonuses, everything the Platinum Car Pack has to offer, and more.

Are you going to shell out the extra cash and pre-order it all to make sure you get all of the cosmetic bonuses here?
