Need for Speed Payback goes full Fast and Furious in new story trailer

Matt Sayer 13 October 2017 NEWS


Prepare for more explosions than a Michael Bay blockbuster.

From its announcement prior to this year's E3, Need for Speed Payback has made no effort to hide its Hollywood inspirations. The latest entry in the Need for Speed franchise is openly courting fans of the Fast and Furious movies, combining fast cars with an action-packed crime story full of revenge, betrayal and plenty of explosions.

This blockbuster tone is more apparent than ever in a new story trailer for the upcoming racer. Setting up the underdog crew you'll play as, the video promises plenty of bombastic drama and ludicrous stunts, including exploding trains, exploding cop cars, exploding helicopters - well, pretty much explosions all around, to be honest.

We recently interviewed the creative director of Need for Speed Payback Will Ho on many of the new features and approaches involved in the game.

Need for Speed Payback is slated for launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 10 November.

If you want to jump into the game early, EA just announced a Play First trial of the first ten hours of the game will be available to EA Access and Origin Access subscribers.
