New Need for Speed announced

We’ve got the trailer for the newly-announced Need for Speed: Payback

EA announced a new Need for Speed today and along with it came a fast-paced and thrilling trailer.

The new games is called Need for Speed: Payback and has players racing through a Las Vegas-like town called Fortune Valley. EA says the game will feature high stakes races, heists and jaw-dropping set pieces.

It will also feature a betting system, the “deepest” car customization ever seen in a Need for Speed game, according to EA’s press release, and of course tons of races, missions and challenges.

The game will not require an always-on internet connection the previous Need for Speed, 2015’s Need for Speed (reboot). No word on what types of online features Payback will include.

Players will control three different characters in what EA and Ghost Games, the developer of Need for Speed: Payback, are calling a “gripping story of betrayal and revenge.”

The game will be available Nov. 10, 2017 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Pre-orders are already being taken and those who decide to strap in for the ride will receive a pre-order DLC pack that features the items below.

  • Nissan 350Z 2008
  • Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
  • Dodge Charger R/T 1969
  • Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
  • Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016
  • Platinum Blue tire smoke for each of the above vehicles

There is also a deluxe edition that will be available Nov. 7, three days before the standard edition, that comes with the Platinum Car Pack (above) and more goodies like extra customization options, in-game discounts and XP bonuses.

EA/Origin Access members can play the game for 10 hours prior to launch beginning Nov. 2 and will receive 10 percent off the purchase price.
