Prior to the EA Play event next weekend (yes, it’s really next weekend), the company, in conjunction with Ghost Games, revealed a trailer that showed the name and release date for the latest Need for Speed title. On November 10, you’ll go on a new vehicular adventure for revenge in Need for Speed: Payback.
In this game, you’ll play as three characters: Tyler, the Racer; Mac, the Showman; and Jess, the Wheelman. These three characters are set on taking revenge for reasons unknown against The House cartel, which has control over the casinos, criminals, and, most importantly, the police in the city of Fortune Valley.
Details on the new gameplay features are slim, but we do know that you can earn more money in each race by betting on your own car’s performance before it starts. However, if you don’t meet expectations, you can suffer a setback in funds. Car customization is back in the game, and it seems that you can still purchase new cars to fill up your garage. In addition, you can find abandoned cars throughout Fortune Valley and restore them to their former prestige so you can use them to race against other drivers.
If you pre-order the game, you’ll get access to the Platinum Car Pack, which gives you five custom cars each with a platinum blue tire smoke. The car pack includes the 2008 Nissan 350Z, 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS, 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, 2016 Ford F-150 Raptor, and the 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport. You can also pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game, which is priced at $80. In addition to the Platinum Car Pack, you’ll get a unique license, a special leaderboard icon, and a NOS color that you can apply to five of your vehicles. It also includes a story mission pack, bonuses for in-game reputation, discounts on in-game purchases, and the ability to play the game three days ahead of everyone else.
