EA and Ghost Games have announced that Need for Speed Payback is available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. Set in the Las Vegas stand-in Fortune Valley, players can drive as three different characters: Tyler, the racer, Mac, the showman, and Jess, the wheelman, each with their own distinct driving style. Together, they go up against The House, a cartel that runs the city’s underground. With Mountains, desert and the city, everything from drifiting to races to heists are available.
“Two years ago, we reinvigorated the franchise by listening to what our fans wanted and built a game that returned to the Need for Speed core tenets- fast cars, deep customization, and epic cop chases. With Need for Speed Payback,we’ve raised the bar by adding Hollywood-style, adrenaline-fueled action, a huge open world, even more customization options, and a narrative that drives gameplay forward,” said Executive Producer Marcus Nilsson. “We’re excited to deliver a new driving experience that not only delivers everything our players love about the series but also pushes the boundaries of what they’ve come to expect from the genre.”
With cars at the center of everything in Need for Speed Payback, customization takes a leap ahead for the different kinds of missions - Racing, Off Road, Drifting, Drag and Runner. Police chases are also back with a smarter AI. Need for Speed Payback is rated ‘T’ for Teen and is available today for $59.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Origin for PC.
