Lina, after explaining that everything is against Ty, tells him, "You're about to run out of luck". The story is about betrayal, vengeance and of course payback. Each with their own different in-game styles. You're in control of three main characters; Tyler "Ty" Ramirez, Jessica "Jess" Miller and Sean "Mac" McAlister.

Ty is "the natural-born racer", and appears to be the lead of the narrative. Drag and street races are his cup of tea and he likes winning races. Once his crew is betrayed, his focus becomes singular: payback.

Jessica "Jess" Miller - Jess is a runner, a driver for hire to the rich and infamous who can get you out of trouble no matter how volatile the situation. She spends her time running high-risk, high-reward jobs yet never loses her level-headed outlook. And Mac is the team's drift and off-road specialist. And the game's story mode looks like an ode to The Fast and the Furious - which is great.

Need for Speed: Payback was revealed at Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 2017) in June. Earn the respect of the Valley's underground and compete in the ultimate race to finally take down The House.

Need for Speed Payback is being developed by Ghost Games using EA DICE's Frostbite Engine. With Need for Speed Payback, it's no longer just about being the first to cross the finish line or racing to prove to be the best, it's about building the flawless ride, getting behind the wheel and playing out an action driving fantasy. What was your favorite NFS among all?

The game releases on November 10th.
