Need for Speed Payback is now available to play for all Xbox One players after its three-day advance access for Deluxe Edition buyers wraps up.
This latest game in the Need for Speed franchise continues the series' tradition of blending racing and story and sports a wider variety of vehicles and locations to explore than its predecessors.
Here's some of its features.
- Scrap to Stock to Supercar: Your car is at the centre of everything you do in Need for Speed Payback. Endlessly fine-tune your performance through each of the five distinct car classes: Race, Drift, Off-Road, Drag, and Runner, to turn the tables on the competition in any race, mission, or challenge. Find abandoned derelict cars scattered throughout the world to build your perfect car from the ground up. Collect, win, or buy the hottest after-market parts and craft multiple cars into the perfect driving machines.
- Live out an action-driving fantasy: Play through an explosive, action-packed adventure as three distinct playable characters united by one common goal: revenge. Tyler, Mac and Jess team up to even the score against all odds, and enter the ultimate race to take down The House. Battle cops with ever-increasing intensity, race against rivals across the city, and drive on and off-road through mountains, canyons, and desert.
- High stakes competition: Get on a roll and win big with all-new Risk vs Reward gameplay. The return of intense cop chases means the stakes have never been higher. Put your reputation on the line and challenge your friends or potential rivals via Autolog recommendations throughout the campaign events or go head-to-head in classic online leaderboards.
