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 [...]
Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi made an appearance at PSX SEA last Saturday, to promote the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport. While most of the presentation- both for the public and the media- revolves around mostly known details, we managed to ask about their plans in supporting offline tournaments. With the Sport Mode being quite a focus, due to the backing from the FIA as well having Sport in the game’s name, we were curious about the plans that developers Polyphony Digital have when it comes to offline tournaments, or any semblance of supporting pro players like other esport scenes, including racing games like Forza Motorsport, have started doing.
With Gran Turismo Sport looming, more details of the series debut to the PS4 have emerged. One thing in particular that we noticed is that the campaign mode won’t be as feature-filled like previous numbered titles.
Talking to Australian money-saving site Finder (via GTPlanet), series creator Kazunori Yamauchi stated that right now the developers are solely focusing on finishing Gran Turismo Sport and supporting it post-launch with DLCs.
“Gran Turismo 7 is not currently planned. All our studios are focused on Gran Turismo Sport and, once it is out, the DLC that follows afterwards.”
Last year, Yamauchi mentioned that Gran Turismo Sport isn’t just [...]
Some say ricers, some say JDMs, but we can all agree that Japanese cars have a huge influence in the automobile industry. Moreso when it comes to our locally-produced Malaysian cars which some of them are based on existing Japanese models.
In this week’s car reveal, Forza Motorsport 7 is unveiling 77 cars from Japanese marques. Honda’s brand new NSX (pictured above with the Acura badge) and Civic Type-R is here, though if you’re a fan of the older models there are there as well. There will be a good selection of Nissans, including various generations of the Skylines, Sylvias, the Z series and of course the Godzilla itself, the GT-R. Subaru, Mazda and [...]
When Gran Turismo Sport was first announced, one big question mark was why was it not labelled as a new numbered sequel. The emphasis on online racing, with dedicated servers for races in Sport mode should be a big sign, but it will also scale down the content size- with around 170+ cars and 20+ tracks.
With these new screenshots of Gran Turismo Sport (via GTPlanet), it looks like we have more evidence why it isn’t not considered a numbered title. All of the main GT games have a sprawling campaign where you work your way from winning the Sunday Cup to gaining racing licences and then compete in faster cars on harder events- including rally and endurance events. For GT [...]
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 [...]
