The future of Need for Speed is no longer limited to fast cars, but this year’s series also makes it clear. In a first trailer, EA concentrates on the narrative and explosions – the scenes could also spring from a “fast – & – furious” movie.
The world of Fortune Valley with the city of Silver Rock may make players uncertain as Streetracer Tyler Morgan who will return from exile and take revenge for the injustice suffered. To do so, a crew has to be set up, a particularly difficult race has been won and a gangster cartel, which controls the city and the police, is brought to a halt. The “Fast & Furious” claim of the game also underlines in writing: Tyler is to be found “in the middle of some of the most action-packed, explosive events” of the series – attributes that are usually not associated with racing games.
Dangers are nevertheless still with cars for the categories race, drift, offroad, drag and escape. The guns should be visually and technically extensively tuned, announces EA; At least verbally, a major focus is once again on modifying the bodies. Forza Horizon also takes the title of barn finds. In Payback, you will also find restrained vehicles that can be turned “from a scrap truck into your own unique, unique sports car”. In order to increase the tension, additional challenges should be assumed before races.
