Need for Speed: Payback offers a thrilling, action-packed racing experience, from risky heist missions to spectacular vehicular battles and breathtaking highlight moments. After your crew has been torn apart, you find back together to take revenge on the House, a ruthless cartel that controls the city's casinos, criminals, and cops. In this corrupt gambler's paradise, the stakes are high and the House always wins. Take on a variety of challenges and events in the roles of Tyler, Mac, and Jess. Each racer must complete races, missions, and challenges to earn the respect of the Valley's underground scene - the only way to participate in the ultimate race and to bring down the House.
Your car is at the centre of everything you do. Use the most comprehensive performance and optical tuning available to create unique cars and push them to their limits to escape the police in breathtaking car chases. Compete against other racers, drive both on and off-road through canyons, deserts, mountains, and the city. Increase the stakes by betting additional in-game currency in events, challenges, and missions to multiply your winnings ... or lose everything. To show off your skills, you can connect with your friends and compete against them via Autolog recommendations. Your leaderboard will fill up with other players of similar skill, so you can see how well you are doing in global comparison.
