What’s new

Along with the main game story, the user will go through about five branches, and will also be able to find many car parts that will help players restore abandoned vehicles and turn them into racing cars. Guide « EA’s » has decided that this is a very good way to not only learn some difficult areas of game cards (it is expected that it will be very big), but also build your own racing car from found junk – this is a kind of craft.

We quote from Electronic Arts Assistant Art Director Brin Alban:

  • “ Once you complete a level and are ready to move on to the next, you will be prompted to upgrade (edit) your car. Throughout the game, the user will be able to collect the most extreme car in his garage, be it an SUV or a street Drifter. You will need to unlock the car collection options as you progress in the game. Some parts of the car will be available immediately, while others will take longer to open – they can both be found on the NFS and can be won in races. “

Internet connection

Along with their predecessors, which required a network connection ( Need for Speed: Rivals and Need for Speed ​​Reboot ), when playing Payback, the user will not be tormented by constant connection requests, since it is not required for a single player game at all . The game will include a full single player campaign where you will be able to pause while playing.

Game world

Get ready to play as three different characters ( looks like nothing? ). Like the two previous installments, Need for Speed: Payback will take gamers into a new, open world. This time, car romantics will have to conquer the vastness of Fortune Valley .

As mentioned above – the campaign will be centered around three characters: Tyler , Mac and Jesse . Each of the three pilots has his own specialty – ” racer “, ” showman ” and ” wheel “. The skills and driving style will also be very different from each other.

  • Tyler Ramirezis an ordinary street racer from a poor neighborhood ruled by The House’s revenge.
  • Sean ” Mack” McCallister is a specialist in off-roading and illegal racing encounters.
  • Jess Milleris a girl born into a wealthy family. Initially, Jess wanted to become a policeman, but “somehow it didn’t work out,” and now she is here, breaking the rules and laws as a “mercenary”.
  • As has been the practice in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuitand Need for Speed: Most Wanted , in the new installment of the game, police chases will become an integral part of almost any race.


In Need for Speed: Payback, cars will be subject to direct modifications by the user, although these are only rumors, because Electronic Arts has not provided specific information on this. The only thing that the developer has promised is that every single part of the car can be changed / modified. Thus, the user will be able to create an individual and in his own way unique transport.

Those users who pre-ordered the game will have access to five custom vehicles, which can also be found in the Deluxe Edition :
