Need for Speed Payback: Meet Your Playable Characters

With Characters Comes a New Story Trailer

Need for Speed Payback is speeding its way to all platforms this November and there’re still some things we don’t know. The game already looks enticing with its variety of settings, cinematic sequences, and in-depth car customization. But since we know it has a story, what about the characters? Well, meet the crew.

Need for Speed Payback

Players will ride into the racing underworld with three unique characters, each with their own specialization. Together, they will embark upon a revenge mission against The House, an enemy in the form of Fortune Valley’s Cartel. Catch a glimpse in the new story trailer below.

Tyler “Ty” Morgan is The Racer. Drag and street races are his cup of tea and as a natural born racer, he has an unwavering will to win. Once his crew is betrayed, his focus becomes singular: payback.

Jessica “Jess” Miller is the Wheelman, always on the run. She spends her time running high-risk, high-reward jobs yet never loses her level-headed outlook. She can get out of any situation, no matter how volatile and will do whatever it takes to protect her friends.

Sean “Mac” McAlister is The Showman, with a style as unpredictable and flashy as he is. Offroad races and drifting are his specialties and he never wavers around a tight corner or fears getting dirty on the trail. Mac’s happy-go-lucky attitude keeps the crew going through the hard times.

It may be that how you drive in Need for Speed Payback is contingent on the character you’re using. We’ll know more on or before release. If you haven’t already seen as much, the game will offer an open-world map. So, expect some exploration with your cinematic story. The game is developed by Ghost and arrives for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on November 10. Stay tuned for news and updates.
