Speedcross Update Coming to Need for Speed Payback on December 19th


EA and Ghost Games have announced that their Need for Speed Payback Speedcross Update is coming on December 19th.

Quote:
Need for Speed Payback's first big content update races into the game on Dec 19. The Speedcross update will feature new abandoned cars, a Speedcross competition event, a new section to Speedlists called Drift Run, and community-anticipated Steering Wheel Support.

While driving around Fortune Valley over the past month and a half, you may have noticed cars in Street Leagues that haven't been available to own yet. Each week following the Dec. 19 update, starting with the Mazda RX-7 Spirit R, a new car will become available at random locations in the Need for Speed Payback world. Find the car, escape the cops, and you'll get to keep the car after purchasing from a dealership. Other vehicles to look forward to in the weeks to come are the Volvo 242DL, Volvo Amazon P130, Plymouth Barracuda, Nissan Skyline 2000 GTR and the BMW M3 Evolution II E30.

In the Speedcross event, take control of Mac and go up against drivers from all over the world to work towards your ultimate goal of beating the reigning world champion, The Barracuda. Go big and focus on scoring as many points as possible in Drift Zones, Jumps, Speedtraps, and Smackables. With 16 new events across four zones, there's plenty of road to conquer in your ultimate vehicle.

The Speedcross content update also includes a new section to Speedlists, Drift Runs. Fifteen different drift runs will be taking place on the streets, off-road, and in both day and night settings.

And finally, the long-awaited Steering Wheel support will be coming to all platforms on Logitech 01-05 wheels.

Man, I really miss being able to play NFS: Porsche Unleashed. Every time I've tried on newer hardware I get game lockups, which is a known problem. A remake/update of that one would make a lot of people happy. Well, if they did it right, of course.

The current developer for NFS, Ghost Games, formed from the remnants of Criterion, has yet to make a good NFS title. I'm not sure it's all their fault as EA has pushed them towards a grind style of play, aimed towards microtransactions. They had to scale back the microtransactions in a patch, much like with Battlefront 2, after the game tanked. EA has a made a lot of money with it's pay-to-win multiplayer in FIFA and Madden. I stopped buying FIFA and Madden because the money grubbing is obscene, selling virtual card packs for multiplayer team building. They tried to make all of their games that way and it backfired.
