Today, at Electronic Arts’ EA Play press conference, Ghost Games presented the first gameplay of its upcoming Need for Speed, titled Need for Speed Payback.

The game comes with a robust single player narrative campaign that puts the player in the shoes of  former street racer Tyler Morgan (plus another two characters). Morgan is trying to rebuild his crew, win an apparently impossible race, and destroy a shady cartel named “The House.”

Five classes of cars will be available: Race, Drift, Off-Road, Drag and Runner. Deep customization is also on the menu, and there will even be derelict cars that can be found in the open world and restored to their former glory.

The game is located in a fictional location named Fortune Valley, coming with diverse environments, including cities, mountains, desert areas and even a canyon.

A deep scoring system will feature speed and style moments and heaters that players can chain in order to multiply their winnings, including a risk and reward mechanic that prompts them to decide between pushing their luck (and skills) and risk losing all, or bank what they got while playing safe.

You can check out the gameplay below, and see if you can hold the hype at bay. If you want to see more, you can also check out the first cinematic trailer.

Those who will purchase the Deluxe Edition of Need for Speed Payback will be able to play on November 7th, while the worldwide official release for everyone else will be on November 10th. The game will come for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
