The reason behind the race.
Need for Speed: Payback is all about going fast in cool cars, but there’s also a story nestled there that you might want to pay attention to if you’re going to be playing the game. That’s why there’s a new trailer that focuses squarely on the story, giving you a glimpse into what’s going on behind the glamour of the expensive cars.
The game finds players taking up the mantle of Tyler, Jess, and Mac, a trio who’s come together to seek out revenge against a cartel known as The House, who basically run the underworld that comprises Fortune Valley. It’s more than just the criminal enterprises: It’s the cops and criminals too, so no one is really winning in this situation. You’ll meet these characters as well as mechanic Rav, gambler Marcus, and House’s representative Lina Navarro as well.
Need for Speed: Payback releases on Nov. 10, but you can try the game out as part of a Play First Trial via EA Access and Origin Access for 10 hours of playtime on Nov. 2. Also, if you purchase the Need for Speed: Deluxe Edition, you’ll get to play the full game three days early, beginning on Nov. 7.
