Need for Speed Payback Peels Out

Electronic Arts announces the launch of Need for Speed Payback for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This launch trailer offers a look at the game's high-octane, open-world action, and the announcement fills in lots of details:

Today, Ghost GamesTM and Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) announced Need for Speed Payback, one of the world’s bestselling video game franchises, is available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Origin for PC. With deeper customization, a diverse open world and blockbuster action moments never-before seen in the franchise, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat experience that will have players living out their ultimate action driving fantasy.

“Two years ago, we reinvigorated the franchise by listening to what our fans wanted and built a game that returned to the Need for Speed core tenets- fast cars, deep customization, and epic cop chases. With Need for Speed Payback, we’ve raised the bar by adding Hollywood-style, adrenaline-fueled action, a huge open world, even more customization options, and a narrative that drives gameplay forward,” said Executive Producer Marcus Nilsson. “We’re excited to deliver a new driving experience that not only delivers everything our players love about the series but also pushes the boundaries of what they’ve come to expect from the genre.”

Set in the gambler’s paradise of Fortune Valley, players can drive as three different characters: Tyler, the racer, Mac, the showman, and Jess, the wheelman, each with their own distinct driving style. Together, they go up against The House, a nefarious cartel that runs the city’s underground. Drift up and down mountain roads, tear up the desert terrain, speed through the city, complete insane heist missions and earn enough of a reputation on the streets to get revenge in the ultimate race to take down The House.

With cars at the center of everything in Need for Speed Payback, Derelicts bring all-new and unique customization options. Take a scrap chassis found on the side of the road and turn it into a supercar dream machine. Five unique car classes bring endless tuning opportunities for players to specialize their ride and leave challengers in the dust during Racing, Off Road, Drifting, Drag or Runner missions.

Epic cop chases bring even more heat to the road in Need for Speed Payback. Smarter police mean it’ll take more skill to escape and fend off new reinforcement vehicles like Rhinos and Helicopters. Feeling confident? Take a chance on Bait Crates in the open world, which award players mysterious performance upgrades if they can escape an on-the-spot cop chase.

Need for Speed Payback is rated ‘T’ for Teen by the ESRB and is available today for $59.99 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Origin™ for PC. For more information please visit

No, he's right. High Stakes and Porsche Unleashed were the last (only?) good ones. Since then, it's all shitty arcade physics and zero damage model. So fucking ridiculous. But I guess there's money in pandering to the kids on consoles who don't like a challenging game.

You guys are delusional, Most wanted 2005 was the best selling need for speed series out of all nfs games that have ever been released up until this very day. Both shift, shift 2 and Pro street tried to take nfs back to a more sim like game with mixed results. The series has been falling off in terms of sales since Most wanted 2005. Most wanted 2005 sold 15 million copies across all platforms, it dipped to 4-5 million after carbon/prostreet/etc. All the others have had trouble reaching even 5 million.

The people who ended up making Project cars and Project cars 2 were responsible for NFS shift series.
