Following the game’s official unveiling last week, EA took to the stage at their EA Play event last night to show off some Need For Speed Payback gameplay, including a new mission called “Highway Heist”.
This particular set-piece is all about stealing a supercar in-transit, and it looks very much like the success of the blockbuster Fast & Furious movies have had an influence on gameplay design, with cars flipping, exploding, and bursting out of transporter trucks with very little concern for their insurance premiums. Madness.
Also mentioned, was another of Payback’s quite obvious influences – coming by way of Forza Horizon – as this time around Need For Speed will also include scrapped classic cars to be found, which can then be recovered, restored and re-tuned.
Need For Speed Payback will launch later this year, November 10, across Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
