Need for Speed: Payback Fully Unveiled, Launches November 10

Electronic Arts and Ghost Games have fully unveiled the next Need for Speed game.

The new game is titled Need for Speed: Payback, and its set for a release on November 10th across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Featured above, you can view the game’s debut trailer.

Here’s a rundown on the title, via Electronic Arts:

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.

Here are the first screenshots:

If you pre-order the game, you’ll get the “Platinum Car Pack,” which gets you instant access to five specially customized cars at launch, each coming with fancy “Platinum Blue Tire Smoke.” The pack includes:

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

Finally, a Deluxe Edition of the game will net you early access three days in advance of its launch, alongside exclusive customization options like the Deluxe Edition license plate and NOS color, as well as Rep bonuses, in-game discounts, everything in the Platinum Car Pack, and more.

    Guess it’s time for the pre-E3 reveals to start happening so that there are no surprises come E3.

    “fueled by a gripping story of betrayal and revenge”
    Ah yes, everybody’s favourite part of Need for Speed, the Oscar winning storytelling.

    I’m still pining for a new Need for Speed: Shift though I know that’s not in the cards since Slightly Mad has moved on to Project CARS.

    I at least hope NFS: Payback brings back offline single player mode.

    Well, I guess I’ll keep an eye on it. Maybe EA won’t fuck it up.

    I think it was confirmed it won’t be always online.

    Of course! Everyone knows that’s what sold millions of copies of NFS The Run!

    Unless they stopped forcing always-online DRM, I’m not even going to consider it.

    Well there will always be some nice maybe in-game engine animation for trailers. Just don’t expect them to represent anything.
