As promised from yesterday’s announcement, EA revealed our first look at the upcoming new game; Need for Speed Payback. As seen in the trailer, the game will introduce a new single player campaign starring former street racer Tyler Morgan. It appears Morgan wants to form a group of elite racers, win outlandish races, and eliminate “The House” cartel. The location of the game has also been revealed as Fortune Valley, fill with cities, mountains, desert areas, canyons—simply think of the SouthWest of the US.
The game will feature five classes of cars, there will be; Race, Drift, Off-Road, Drag, and Runner. With of course the assist of customizing your vehicle through the game’s menu where many of the game’s aftermarket parts will become available. You’ll also get the chance to the chance to derelict the cars in the vast open world, and restore them into what the game is calling “one-of-a-kind-supercar”. There’ll also be included an autolog feature that’ll compare your scores with everyone else’s online, that even includes your progress through the game’s campaign and open world.
