Electronic Arts officially unveiled the latest entry in the Need for Speed series today. The new title, Need for Speed Payback was announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with a November 10 release date.
EA promises the Ghost Games-developed title will offer plenty of story element in the Fast and the Furious-inspired title, which is no longer just about racing and will have a plot “fueled by a gripping story of betrayal and revenge.”
Here’s a little bit on its setting:
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.
Those of you who pre-order the game will get a Need for Speed Payback Platinum Pack with instant access to five uniquely customizes and tuned iconic cars at launch. Each with exclusive Platinum Blue Tire Smoke.
Here’s what it includes:
- Nissan 350Z 2008
- Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
- Dodge Charger R/T 1969
- Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
- Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016
The Need for Speed Payback Deluxe Edition will also players up to three days of early-access to the full game, as well as exclusive customization items such as the Deluxe Edition license plate and NOS color, in-game discounts, Rep bonuses, everything the Platinum Car Pack has to offer, and more.
