Need For Speed Payback arrives to rev up the tire-d franchise


Outrageously modded vehicles? Check. Fast paced, car based stunts? Check. Delightfully corny dialogue? Check and mate. The first trailer for this year's Need for Speed game (subtitled 'Payback') is here, and it looks ridiculous. 

I'm personally unapologetic about my utter love for The Fast and the Furious franchise, so I'm delighted that this years reboot of the Need for Speed games appears to be borrowing heavily from the long-running car-based franchise. 

The trailer (embedded below), appears to be making a big deal out of the game's story, which is based around getting revenge (or should I say, 'payback') on 'The House', a cartel that's taken control of the city's casinos, criminals, and cops. 

Cue a number of outrageously modded supercars, fast driving, and the police chases that the game has been known for over the years. 

It all looks cheesy in the ways the best games in the franchise have been over the years, and we're looking forward to finding out more at E3 2017.
