Need For Speed Payback Gets Forza-Style Open-World

A new trailer detailing the open-world of Need for Speed Payback has just been released.

The game will be based in the world of Fortune Valley and based off this trailer, will therefore bare many resemblances to the Forza Horizon series. Among the areas included in Fortune Valley will be a Las Vegas-inspired downtown area dominated by casinos and hotels while gamers will also have the opportunity to race through mountains and deserts.

Like other Need for Speed titles, Payback will offer comprehensive customization options for players to personalize their vehicles.

Electronic Arts has yet to release a full car list for the game but it will include everything from American muscle cars to JDM tuner cars and full-blown hypercars. The game will land on shelves on November 10, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
