Need for Speed: Payback is an interesting game because it puts a The Fast and the Furious-like campaign twist on the high-octane racing gameplay we expect. During the campaign, you play three distinct characters called Jess, Mac and Tyler. According to EA, the three are united with the one common goal of revenge.
From what we've seen, Need for Speed: Payback features thrilling heist missions, stunning set pieces, and even car battles! It's certainly seems like The Fast and the Furious but in video game form. Jess, Mac and Tyler must take on The House, a nefarious cartel that runs the story's criminal underworld. See the trailer below.
Tyler Ramirez, better known as Ty, is The Racer. According to EA, drag and street races are his cup of tea and as a natural-born racer, he has an unwavering will to win. Jessica Miller, also known as Jess, is the Wheelman, and is always on the run. She spends her time running high-risk jobs yet never loses her calm outlook on well, the illegal situations she's involved in. Lastly, Sean McAlister, or Mac, is The Showman. Offroad races and drifting are his specialties and he never wavers around a tight corner.
Need for Speed: Payback promises a thrilling campaign so be sure to check it out when it launches on November 10, 2017. Remember, EA Access members not only get a discount on the Xbox Store, but they can also play the game a few days early due to their subscription.
