Need For Speed Payback Content Update Available Today!

When I first heard about this last night I was super excited to be an owner of Need For Speed Payback. You never really know what to expect from NFS. Sometimes they make their content updates really well, and other times they don’t. Sorry to say, it’s unfortunate.

The Need For Speed Payback update looks pretty promising though and its out today!

Abandoned Cars

If you’ve been playing Need For Speed Payback you know that there are some cars that the Street Leagues drive that YOU do not have access to. Well, that’s about to change.

Some of the cars include; Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, Volvo 242DL, Volvo Amazon P130, Plymouth Barracuda, Nissan Skyline 2000 GTR and the BMW M3 Evolution II E30.

That’s right guys, you finally are going to get your RX7 and I am finally going to get my Nissan Skyline 2000 GTR.

Starting today, the abandoned cars will begin to appear hidden inside Fortune Valley – just like the Crew did.

Find the car, escape the cops, keep the car. Once you’ve acquired the car, it will then be available to purchase from a dealership of your choice.

Abandoned Cars will start appearing across Fortune Valley very soon as a free addition to all owners of NFS Payback.

The first car to go find is the Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, with more cars to arrive in the comings weeks.

New Mode – Speedcross

Beyond just all the new cars available, there will also be a new mode/event available.

Take control of Mac as you go up against a number of drivers from all over the world, with cities such as Palmont, Bayview, Rockport, Fairhaven and Olympic City all represented, with the ultimate goal of beating the reigning champion, The Barracuda.

Speedcross is an event that focuses on scoring as many points as you can through a pre-determined course. Go big, and go fast as you score points in each of the following areas; Drift Zones, Jumps, Speedtraps, and Smackables.

The introduction of Speedcross will also include sixteen brand new events, split across four zones; Canyon, Airfield, Construction and Ember valley.

Speedcross will be free to all owners of the Deluxe Edition and will be purchasable as a separate standalone for everyone else.

BMW Performance Parts

To top it off, a number of the BMW cars in the game will also be getting numerous BMW M Performance Parts. These work just like the other performance parts in the game; buy and equip them via the garage.

Speedlists

Another new Mode they are adding to Need For Speed Payback is called Drift Run.

Up to 8 players will be able to take part in the event, with a multiplier being given to those that are in front (distance wise).

In total there will be 10 different drift runs, available in both day and night settings.

These additions to Speedlists will be available to everyone from December 19th.

Steering Wheel Support

For those of you that have been asking and begging for Steering Wheel support, you should also know that Need For Speed Payback has made it official; the game will now support specific steering wheels. These include:

Logitech G29
Logitech G920

Both of the wheels above can be used for PC, PS4 or Xbox One.

The Steering Wheel support is also available TODAY.
