Wanting to create a video game equivalent makes flawless sense, and EA is better positioned than most with Need for Speed. Focused on three playable characters, who it seems the game switches between during certain set pieces, Payback is about their mission to take down a risky cartel.
In this new video, we get to see how you will play through the world in the 2017 Need for Speed game.
In the Need for Speed Payback story, you take control of Tyler Morgan as he struggles to claw back from a double cross. The trailer also shows off how that the heist mechanic plays out as the auto catches up to the truck eventually before a cinematic plays out.

Payback was one of eight games shown during this year's event, held at the Hollywood Palladium, and seemed to be the most popular project not tied to a multi-billion dollar film franchise. EA also confirmed that the game will have abandoned cars scattered around the map, ready to be restored to their former glory, which sounds like an epic side mission if you ask us. It will be available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. And this is the point where Need For Speed: Payback started to lose me. As you track down the truck, other racecars appear to stop you. Very Fast and Furious like.
EA's on a roll with their new games, and Longshot is Madden NFL's first ever cinematic and playable story mode. Even the semi truck hijack looks like something right out of the Fast & Furious franchise. House Cartel Enforcers don't really want the player to do that, so they get in the way as much as possible.
Quite a many announcements were made so we've made it easier for you by collecting each bit revealed by rounding everything up.
