Much like its most recent predecessor, Ghost Games’ upcoming Need for Speed: Payback will allow players to upgrade and customize their rides to their liking. This time around, though, more chassis will be made available in the form of ‘derelicts,’ which are broken down, left behind and forgotten about cars that have an awful lot in common with Forza Horizon‘s Barn Finds.
The whole idea behind Payback‘s garage system is that you must earn, collect or buy the parts that your vehicle needs. This means doing well on the ‘track’ and visiting tune-up joints where your cars’ stats can be boosted for a price. As such, bringing a junker back to life in perfect fashion won’t be a quick thing, nor will it be easy on your wallet, though it will surely end up being worthwhile in the long run.
Cars will take several different forms this time around, with five distinct classes or types to choose from. This includes the familiar Race, Drift and Off-Road varieties, as well as the straight line specialist Dragsters and the “Get the job done, no questions asked” Runners. Of course, each variation will be better served for different events or explorative road trips, making it important to have at least one of each available at all times.
Need for Speed: Payback will hit the starting line on November 10, 2017. Those who pre-order it will receive the following bonus items/vehicles:
Exclusive Platinum Blue Underglow & Tire Smoke Vanity Items
Nissan 350Z 2008
Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
Dodge Charger R/T 1969
Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016
Stay tuned for more information as winter approaches.
