First trailer and details for the return of EA’s racing franchise
Hey PlayStation fans, great to be back on the blog to talk about the latest Need for Speed game, something we’re calling Payback.
We love the smell of burnt rubber lingering through the streets, a remnant of the activities that were carried out during the early hours of the morning. But the darkness of night now gives way to the light of day as the city of Silver Rock begins to spark into life as the sun breaks across the entire Fortune Valley region.
Need for Speed Payback has a single player campaign that follows the exploits of former street racer Tyler Morgan. After being double-crossed and forced into exile, it’s time for Payback. Tyler must rebuild his crew, win an impossible race and bring down The House, the cartel that has a grip over the city’s casinos, criminals and cops.
It’s not going to be easy though. Tyler and the crew will find themselves in the middle of some of the most action-packed, explosive events in Need for Speed history.
It wouldn’t be Need for Speed without killer cars. The big question is: what sort of ride do you want? Cars in Need for Speed Payback come in one of five classes; Race, Drift, Off-Road, Drag and Runner. Whatever your goal, you’re going to want the right car for the job.
Now for the fun part, where you turn it up a notch and take your stock ride into something spectacular.
Visually customize your ride to get it looking just how you want, and your garage has never looked better. But deep down we know it’s what’s under the hood that counts; win and buy the hottest aftermarket parts and craft the perfect driving machine.
Keep your eyes peeled while exploring Fortune Valley, and you may just find an abandoned car that becomes your new project. Breathe life into it and raise it from scrap into your one-of-a-kind supercar.
Fortune Valley is your action-packed playground. Race through the glamorous and gritty districts of Silver Rock City, tear up the arid Liberty Desert, drift your way up Mount Providence and defy deadly drops all over Silver Canyon. Whatever you’re in the mood for, Fortune Valley has it all.
The return of intense cop chases means the stakes have never been higher. With helicopters and Rhinos in their arsenal, you’re going to have to push yourself, and your car, to the limit if you’re going to outrun and get away from the local PD. One thing is for sure, they certainly won’t go easy on you.
Double down on risk to run up your rewards. Nail speed and style moments to bank extra rep, and string together Heaters for massive multipliers. Push your limits to bank your winnings, or will you go bust? Up the ante with challenges that raise the stakes in races. Win the race and the challenge to multiply your bank.
Think you’re the fastest and willing to put your reputation on the line? An all new Autolog pushes your friends’ best scores from the entire campaign and world activities. Bragging rights are always at stake — and only a button press away.
You’ll see more of Need for Speed Payback at EA Play, starting 10th June, including a first look at gameplay. We’ll see you in Los Angeles and look forward to tearing up the streets and desert of Fortune Valley when Need for Speed Payback releases on 10th November.
Until next time.
