Pre-order offers 5 exclusive cars; play a week earlier with EA Access.


Need for Speed is back on the scene again this year, with the new title from Ghost Games and EA due this November on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Need for Speed Payback features three playable characters looking to take down The House, a cartel that run the casinos, criminals and cops of Fortune Valley. You can watch the first trailer right here.

As well as customisation, Need for Speed Payback is offering cop and rival chases, and promises a driving environment that features deserts, canyons, mountain and city streets. It’s not a real location, as previously speculated.

Players who pre-order get access to the Platinum Car Pack, which includes five extra cars and platinum tyre smoke. Those extra cars are:

  • Nissan 350Z 2008
  • Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
  • Dodge Charger R/T 1969
  • Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
  • Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016

Although the official release is November 10, those who buy the Need for Speed Payback Deluxe Edition will get access to the game three days early on November 7, a special license plate, discounts, rep bonuses and the five vehicles from the Platinum Car Pack.

And if you want to play the game even earlier you can use EA Access and Origin Access from November 2, clocking up 10 hours of play with the Play First Trial.
