Cars In Need For Speed Payback Will Have Specific Classes
The more we know about Need For Speed Payback, the harder it is to not compare the game with Ubisoft’s The Crew. The last trailer of the game showcases how performance parts work and Derelicts to collect, which feels oddly familiar. Now we know that cars will fall into several classes, each suited for a specific driving style.
The cars in Need For Speed Payback can fall into five different classes- Race (the all-rounder classe), Drag (ludicrous fast on straights), Drift (for driving in style) and new to the series: Off-Road (good for bumpy roads, off roads, and big jumps). The last one, Runner, is “for a special type of job”. Cars in Runner class will have a subtle paint job, tinted windows, lowered ride height, wide track width and no license plate. What it boils down to is Runners are the go-to car for missions and cop chases, which should make up a good chunk of the gameplay.
Each car in Need For Speed Payback will bound to either two or three of the classes. Derelicts, however, can be converted into all five classes, making finding them all the more valuable.
The big selling point in 2014’s The Crew is that cars can be converted into several specs that not only looks different, but is suitable for different kinds of driving. Looks like Payback is again taking a page out of the competition, but we will have to see if their implementation is mere copycat or with its own unique twist.
Need For Speed Payback will be out on November 10 for the PS4, PC and Xbox One.
