Need for Speed Payback launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 10th, 2017. Nathan rated it 7 out of 10 in his review while providing the following summary:

Need for Speed Payback is a well-designed sandbox that’s at its most entertaining when you ignore what’s supposed to be the core of the game. The story is a dud, and the game’s Ultimate Team-inspired upgrade system is an attempt to force a square peg into a round hole, but there’s no denying tearing down desert roads at 180 mph in a souped-up 1965 Mustang is a blast. Need for Speed Payback is a fun joyride, but it doesn’t quite hold up over the long haul.
