Need for Speed Payback is a racing game set in an open world environment. It will be focused on “action driving” and will have the three playable characters (each with different sets of skills) working together to pull off action movie like sequences. It will also feature a 24-hour day-night cycle unlike the previous game. Unlike the 2015 Need for Speed reboot, Payback will include an offline single-player mode.
The game takes place in Fortune Valley and follows the three main characters: Tyler Morgan (The Racer), Mac (The Showman) and Jess (The Wheelman) as they attempt to take down “The House”, a cartel who controls Fortune Valley’s underworld.
Need for Speed Payback is an upcoming racing video game developed by Ghost Games and published by Electronic Arts for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is the twenty-third installment in the Need for Speed series. The game was revealed with a trailer released on June 2, 2017. The game is scheduled to be released worldwide on November 10, 2017.
