Need for Speed: Payback, the burnout game we have been waiting for?

During EA Play last night we got a glimpse of what to expect from Need for Speed: Payback.

Marcus Nilsson, an executive producer on the game, took to the stage to pitch Need for Speed: Payback as primarily a revenge story, with a fully-fledged campaign boasting three playable characters known as Tyler, Jess and Mac.

The demo showed the crew attempting to steal a vehicle from a a moving truck on a highway. The truck was flanked by cars that needed taking out, it all felt very burnout, mixed in with some great cinematics. We have the video below for you to check out, we would love to know what you think.

Need for Speed Payback announced

With a familiar Fast and Furious theme to it, the visuals of last year’s title but with some sunshine, collectable classic cars to find like in Forza Horizon, the crash sequences of Burnout, and a little of the track events last seen in Split Second, Need for Speed Payback looks to be incorporating some of the best elements of car racing films and games into their latest entry in the series.

At the EA E3 conference, Need For Speed Payback was shown off, treating us to some of the high speed racing, traffic dodging and pursuits we can expect come release, November 10th. A section of it’s story mode was highlighted, showing a stunt seen multiple times in the Fast and Furious franchise of films, where one of the three protagonists you’ll play as jumps from a high speed car onto a truck, before stealing the sport’s car within and driving off. It was exhilarating to watch, and we here at TiX towers are pretty hyped.

We look forward to seeing more, but for now, there is a reveal trailer:
