EA's Need for Speed Payback racing toward November release


Fast and Furious

The next in Electronic Arts’ long-running Need for Speed series is an “action driving fantasy” no doubt drawing comparisons to the huge Fast and Furious franchise.Need for Speed Payback, developed by Ghost Games, will follow three different characters (the “Racer, Showman, and Wheelman”) who team together to pull off heists and whatnot to get back at a cartel.

Promising an open world environment and customization options, Ghost Games also tells of a neat gambling motif as betting on yourself earns you money for better parts. Pre-ordering Payback will net you the Platinum Car Pack which includes:

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

There will also be a First Play Trial for EA Access and Origin subscribers starting November 2nd, in which they’ll be able to play up to ten hours. As for everyone else, Need for Speed Payback will release November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
