Here’s why you should be excited for the upcoming action-racing game.
Need for Speed is coming back after a two-year hiatus. After an underwhelming attempt at a reboot in 2015, the series is going back to what it knows best- actual, fast-paced action-racing. It’s fair to say, however, that there hasn’t really been a truly good Need for Speed game in years. Need for Speed Rivals was admittedly an enjoyable experience, but the series just hasn’t been able to hit top gear since 2012’s Most Wanted.
With the upcoming Payback, EA and developers Ghost Games are looking to change that, and from what we’ve seen so far, it definitely looks like they’re headed in the right direction. In this feature, we’re going to take a look at fourteen things that have us quite excited about Need for Speed Payback. Without further ado, let’s get right into it.
Need for Speed as we know it today is arguably at its best when its set in an open world environment, and the upcoming Payback seems to know that fact very well. The latest entry in the series is going to be an open world game- in fact, this is going to be the biggest open world setting in the series to date. There are going to be four distinct areas in the map, and if Ghost Games can deliver an open world that isn’t lifeless or big just for the sake of being big like so many others out there, then we could be in for something special in Need for Speed Payback.
