EA have announced that Need for Speed Payback is in development at their Ghost Games studio. The next instalment in their popular franchise is described as an explosive adventure filled with intense heist missions, high stakes car battles, epic cop pursuits and jaw dropping set pieces.
Need for Speed Payback promises gameplay never before seen from the series, fueled by a gripping story of betrayal and revenge. It’s no longer just about being the first to cross the finish line or racing to prove to be the best, it’s about building the perfect ride, getting behind the wheel and playing out an action driving fantasy.
Ghost Games have also announced that you will be able to play through the single player experience in Need for Speed Payback completely offline. That means there’s no need to be always connected to the Internet and you’ll be able to pause the game.
Watch the Need for Speed Payback announcement trailer below:
Set in the underworld of Fortune Valley, players will drive as three distinct characters reunited by a quest for vengeance against The House, a nefarious cartel that rules the city’s casinos, criminals and cops. They will take on a variety of challenges and events as Tyler, the Racer; Mac, the Showman; and Jess, the Wheelman to earn the respect of the underground. Featuring the deepest customization from the series, players can truly craft a personalized and unique ride, or spend hours finding and tuning an abandoned derelict into a supercar. They can then push their cars to the limit and raise the stakes by betting on their own performance, where they can either multiply their winnings or risk losing it all.
