Need for Speed Payback Trailer Previews the Story

By Kelly Packard, 1 month ago
EA has dropped a story trailer for Need for Speed Payback. Perhaps historically not the most important part of a racing game, it's always there nonetheless. This one looks to contain all the usual fixings: the main characters getting "played," drama, explosions and a harebrained scheme to steal a supercar.


Players will step into the shoes of the three main characters: Ty Morgan, Jess Miller and Sean McAlister, better known as Mac. According to EA, "Each driver must take on races, missions, and challenges to earn the respect of the Valley’s underground and compete in the ultimate race to finally take down The House."

Other major players include Rav Chaudhry (part of the crew, but not a playable character — he's your "mechanical genius"), Lina Navarro (a representative of the infamous House) and Marcus Weir, better known as The Gambler. Closeups of all the characters and other scenes from the story mode can be seen below:


Need for Speed Payback launches on November 10th.
