Need for Speed Payback is a racing game developed by Ghost Games and published by EA. Its story centers around three distinct characters who team up to take down a criminal cartel that controls most of the fictional Fortune Valley the game is set in. As a much-requested feature from the series’ fans, the single-player campaign can be played offline.
As expected of a NFS installment, it also offers an open-world environment, an extensive roster of cars (including the brand new BMW M5), cop pursuits, and, new to the franchise, high-stakes heist missions. Payback also boasts the deepest car customization in the series thus far, according to the developer. The players will find scrapped vehicles and parts as they explore the Fortune Valley, and build their perfect car from the ground up.
