Need for Speed Payback is a racing game set in an open world environment. It will be focused on "action driving" and will have the three playable characters (each with different sets of skills) working together to pull off action movie like sequences. It will also feature dynamic weather system and day-night cycle which affects the gameplay. Unlike the 2015 Need for Speed reboot, Payback will include an offline single-player mode.

Need for Speed Payback successfully returns to its Fast and Furious roots with aplomb, but a focus on the grind and a beautiful but empty world means it ultimately falls short of greatness.
Where Payback falters, however, is its misuse of compelling characters, lack of police force, and an open world which – while beautiful – only has about 1/8th of it in the city, leaving most of your driving to be an extended scenic route. It’s a step in the right direction for Need For Speed with just a few too many missteps. If you enjoyed Underground or Most Wanted, Payback will be right up your alley.
Need for Speed returns with another flawed entry. There's the core of a great racing game here and when you're just driving around the open world, it's wonderful. The progression system encourages grinding and the basic story is delivered with B-movie seriousness, taking away from the racing pleasure. There's a better game inside of Payback, but you have to go through everything else to get to it.
