Need for Speed Payback Videos
We’re seeing new Need for Speed Payback videos appear out of EA Play including the following Need for Speed Payback gameplay trailer.
In this new video, we get to see how you will play through the world in the 2017 Need for Speed game. You’ve seen a little in the preview, but this is new once you get past the intro.
You’ll need to take out cars and catch up to a truck in this new mission. You get to see actual gameplay, though another cutscene quickly interrupts.
While you need to take down other cars, you don’t have weapons, so you’ll have to ram into them repeatedly. It’s very Fast & Furious in that aspect. Even the semi truck hijack looks like something right out of the Fast & Furious franchise. You play as three characters, and we see some of that in the trailer.
