Official Story Trailer for Need for Speed: Payback

Electronic Arts and Ghost Games have shared a new trailer for Need for Speed: Payback.

Featured above, the game’s official story trailer gives a quick summary of the main plot – which involves the player-protagonist and a crew of hotrod drives in the Fortune Valley underworld.

Here’s a rundown on the game:

Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, you and your crew were divided by betrayal and reunited by revenge to take down The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. In this corrupt gambler’s paradise, the stakes are high and The House always wins.

Craft unique rides with deeper performance and visual customization than ever before. Push them to the limit when you narrowly escape the heat in epic cop battles. From insane heist missions to devastating car battles to jaw-dropping set piece moments, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline-fueled action-driving fantasy.

Key Features:

  • Scrap to stock to supercar. Your car is at the center of everything you do in Need for Speed Payback. Endlessly fine-tune your performance with each of the five distinct car classes (Race, Drift, Off-Road, Drag and Runner) to turn the tables on the competition in any race, mission or challenge.
  • Live out an action-driving fantasy. Play as three distinct characters united by one common goal: revenge. Tyler, Mac and Jess team up to even the score against all odds, and enter the ultimate race to take down The House. Battle cops with ever-increasing intensity, race against rivals across the city and drive on and off-road through mountains, canyons and deserts.
  • High stakes competition. Win big with all-new Risk vs Reward gameplay. Intense cop chases mean the stakes have never been higher. Challenge your friends or potential rivals via Autolog recommendations throughout the events or go head-to-head in classic online leaderboards.

Need for Speed: Payback is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 10th.

    Τhat looks like a generic, boring Holywood movie. Oh wait! This is how most modern, western AAA games are like now!
