The next installment of the Need for Speed video game series appears to take cues from the massively popular Fast and Furious franchise. It’s called (with apologies to the late James Brown) Need for Speed Payback, and the game‘s new “official reveal trailer” recently premiered online.
Need for Speed is historically a racing series, but Need for Speed Payback adds elements of action-adventure and cinematic storytelling to the formula. As the game’s executive producer Marcus Nilsson put it in its press release:
“We’re still delivering everything our fans love about the franchise –- the deepest customization, an impressive roster of cars, intense races and open world pursuits –- but with Need for Speed Payback, we’re bringing together all those elements in an all new blockbuster driving experience. From the story, to the different characters you can drive as, to the varied missions, to the edge-of-your-seat moments, this is our vision for what action driving entertainment means today.”
You can watch the official reveal trailer for Need for Speed Payback below. The game comes out on November 10th, and for more take a look at EA’s official site for it here.
