Need for Speed Payback seamlessly blends gameplay and cinematics

58 second read


Need for Speed Payback’s the new NFS coming from EA this year. Coming from Ghost Games again – and it will be a cinematic racing experience.

“The current generation racer is launching in November, bringing players to a brand new city for you to tear up the streets with. Ventura Bay is described as sprawling, varied city, with dense streets for high-octane racing to scenic harbours and high canyons for you to test your handbrake skills. The open-world structure is being retained once again, with players free to explore the space at their leisure and hunt out events.”

EA showed off a new bit of gameplay that seamless blended racing with cinematic action, making it a lot more like a Fast and The Furious video game than we’ve had before. Check it out:

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
