Today Electronic Arts and Ghost Games released a new trailer of their upcoming racing game Need for Speed Payback.

The trailer reveals that players will be able to take control of three playable characters, united by their desire for revenge against the cartel that runs Fortune Valley’s criminal underground, named “The House.”

The three characters are the racer Tyler “Ty” Morgan, the daring Jessica “Jess” Miller and the flashy Sean “Mac” McAlister.

Tyler “Ty” Morgan is the The Racer. Drag and street races are his cup of tea and as a natural born racer, he has an unwavering will to win. Once his crew are betrayed, his focus becomes singular: payback.

Jessica “Jess” Miller is the Wheelman, always on the run. She spends her time running high-risk, high-reward jobs yet never loses her level-headed outlook. She can get out of any situation, no matter how volatile and will do whatever it takes to protect her friends.

Sean “Mac” McAlister is The Showman, with a style as unpredictable and flashy as he is. Offroad races and drifting are his specialties and he never wavers around a tight corner or fears getting dirty on the trail. Mac’s happy-go-lucky attitude keeps the crew going through the hard times.

You can check the video out below. If you want to see and read more about Need for Speed Payback, you can enjoy a recent gameplay video, another trailer released alongside the PC hardware requirements, and the reveal of the 2018 BMW M5 from Gamescom.
