EA Announces Need for Speed Payback

Today Electronic Arts revealed its next vroom-vroom game, Need for Speed Payback, which will be out November 10 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.


Developed by the Swedish studio Ghost Games, Need for Speed Payback appears to be heavily inspired by the Fast and the Furious movies, which ain’t a bad thing.

You can see the first trailer above. EA will talk more about the game next week during its pre-E3 event, EA Play, which starts on Saturday, June 10. Prepare for lots of vroom-vrooms.

They’re gonna do this every time, aren’t they? You would think that by now developers would learn that no one is asking for these story driven, cut-scene laden racers.Players don’t care, and reviewers almost always make note of how they’re poorly written and don’t work.

In this genre, gameplay is all anyone cares about. Forza and Gran Turismo aren’t the biggest racing series’ on their respective platforms because they have deep, engrossing narratives, people aren’t still begging for a new Burnout because they had engaging characters.

Just give us the most basic of premises and put us behind a wheel, we don’t need a goddamn excuse to drive really fucking fast.
