The latest Need For Speed instalment is bringing even more depth, detail and options to the customisation side of the franchise, while also giving players the chance to rebuild a car from the ground up.
A new trailer from publisher EA and developer Ghost Games has showcased the almost-overwhelming array of customisation options that gamers can try out when NFS Payback hits virtual and real-life shelves on the 10 November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Players will be able to put their own stamp on their cars, while also altering the performance like never before – with five car classes to delve into (race, drift, off-road, drag and runner). Of course, customisation has long been a part of NFS, but not in this kind of depth.
Derelicts are cars that you can find during the single player campaign. You don’t have to buy them, win them or anything like that. It’s a full-on hunt for these classic, abandoned machines, ready to be brought back to life. Winning, buying and finding car parts allows players to bring it back to stock condition.
Then, having done that, gamers will be able turn it into a bonkers super-build – a far cry from the battered, run-down car that was found in the open-world map. Five derelicts are in the game, associate art director Bryn Alban told us, and these include the 1965 Chevrolet Stepside Pickup and the 1963 VW Beetle.
EA also confirmed that those who pre-order the game will get the Platinum Car Pack, which gets them five uniquely-customised and tuned cars:
- Nissan 350Z 2008
- Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967
- Dodge Charger R/T 1969
- Ford F-150 Raptor 2016
- Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016
- (Plus exclusive Platinum Blue Underglow & Tire Smoke Vanity Items)
