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 [...]
Need For Speed might be taking a different turn again with Payback as they are doubling down on cinematic action sequences, but it will keep one fan-favourite feature in tact: customisation. There is a strong fanbase for visual customisation options on cars ever since the series embraced that idea in Need For Speed Underground, and looks like they have made improvements from the 2015 reboot.
This new trailer showcases some new variety of parts- more ducktail spoilers and wheelie bars are seen. And a new tweet from the official Twitter confirmed that neon underglow is making a return.
We heard you had a thing for neon lights, check back tomorrow for [...]
In the E3 press conference by EA, Need For Speed gets its first gameplay trailer shown. And it really looks a lot like a Fast and Furious movie, or another take of Need For Speed Undercover with its focus of story driven action driving with objectives. Or another more recent example would be Need For Speed: The Run, which did not do well and was the last game by Black Box Studios.
It looks decent, all the explosives and crashes look and sound good, but from a gameplay perspective, handling wise it’s reminscent of Burnout, Criterion’s Need For Speed Games and Need For Speed 2015’s drift handling with all the sliding and radical slo-mo each time you wreck a [...]
No more teases. As expected, the new Need For Speed for 2017 was revealed ahead of E3 and we finally have a title.
Need For Speed Payback. Rather apt, don’t you think?
Need For Speed Payback takes a more story-driven direction with car battles, hot pursuits and set pieces. It’s not all about the racing this time. Payback will also feature three different playable protagonists, each with their own different skillset.
As hinted earlier, the setting is based on Las Vegas, called Fortune Valley. The goal here is to bring The House, a cartel that is controlling all of the city including its cops, down. Vehicle customisation is also back, with off-road [...]
A new Need For Speed is coming but we have yet know almost nothing of note about the new game, aside from not being always-online (thankfully). But leading to E3 the Need For Speed Twitter account has been tweeting very small teases on what possibly is its setting.
First up is this picture.

Granted it barely even tells you anything, but applying some contrast to the picture and you’ll see a glimpse of a cityscape.
But given that we do have the knowledge of the first screenshot of the game implying [...]
The longest running racing game franchise is still continuing. Need For Speed is set to make a return this year, and a new blog post has hinted at what to expect of the third entry under developers Ghost Games.
While more details will be revealed later on during E3 season- more specifically on June 2, the new blog post from the official site confirms that the game will no longer be an always-online experience. It may not sound as much, but the requirement of the feature seen in Need For Speed 2015 was A) inconvenience considering the early server connection problems it faced and B) added little to the experience. It was a major gripe for players. Glad that the devs listened, [...]
