Need for Speed Payback Has Fast and Furious Heists, Burnout Takedowns

Need for Speed Payback isn't the first Need for Speed taking inspiration from the Fast and Furious action movies, but where 2003's NFS Underground cribbed the movie franchise's neon-lit street racing, Payback imitates the vehicular heists of Fast and Furiouses 5, 6, 7 and 8. The only thing missing is Vin Diesel torpedo headbutting someone with his finely polished melon. See for yourself in this Need for Speed Payback gameplay in which Mike drives and Andy is in the passenger seat.

In this gameplay we attempt to jack a Koenigsegg Regera from the back of a semi truck that is speeding through the desert. Many ludicrous and physically impossible things occur along the way, including Andy's favourite Burnout-style takedowns. This is already looking like a return to form for the series.

Need for Speed Payback comes out on release date 10 November 2017.
