EA Reveal Need for Speed Payback Coming This Year

EA have revealed the new line for their racing title Need for Speed with Payback coming this year on November 10th 2017.

The game will take place in the underworld of Fortune Valley which is said to be “an explosive adventure fueled by a gripping story of betrayal and revenge” EA says. Players will be able to play as three different characters who are reunited; Tyler, the Racer;  Mac, the Showman, and Jess, the Wheelman with each driver taking on races, missions and challenges in order to earn the respect of the Valley’s underground.

Need for Speed returns this year to challenge what players expect from racing games, We’re still delivering everything our fans love about the franchise – the deepest customization, an impressive roster of cars, intense races and open world pursuits – but with Need for Speed Payback, we’re bringing together all those elements in an all new blockbuster driving experience. From the story to the different characters you can drive as, to the varied missions, to the edge-of-your-seat moments, this is our vision for what action driving entertainment means today.”

– Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer
