Need for Speed has become one of the most popular racing games ever since the series made its debut back in 1994. The racing series has undergone many forms over the years but has always delivered that adrenaline inducing racing action.
We’ve known that a new Need for Speed game was in the works but today EA has officially announced Need for Speed: Payback. A trailer has been released along with some very beautiful screenshots of the game in action. Check them out below:
The press release reads: “Players will take on the roles of three distinct playable characters reunited by a quest for vengeance against The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. Each driver must take on races, missions and challenges to earn the respect of the Valley’s underground and enter the ultimate race to take down The House.”
As GameSpot reports, Need for Speed: Payback will apparently feature the deepest customization ever in a Need for Speed game. The game will also include a betting system where players can make bets on races and potentially win big.
There is a pre-order bonus called the Platinum Car Pack which includes five new cars with Platinum Blue Tire smoke. The cars are:
- Nissan 350Z 2008
- Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
- Dodge Charger R/T 1969
- Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
- Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016
A Deluxe Edition will also be available and will include the Platinum Car Pack along with more customization options like a license plate and NOS colour. It also comes with in-game discountsand XP bonuses and will be available three days early, on November 7. The main game is set to be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 10.
