Need for Speed Payback car customization

Customizability has been one of Need for Speed‘s most iconic elements in the past decade, and Need for Speed Payback is making sure it’s one of their key selling points. Electronic Arts put out a new trailer today for the Ghost Games’ developed racer focusing on that aspect, which includes the ability to find “derelicts.” This new addition will allow players to find vintage vehicles and then restore them, and eventually turn them into “one-of-a kind supercar beasts.”

Check out the new trailer below:

While the trailer touches on these elements, they’re all fully detailed over at Need for Speed Payback‘s official website. Here’s how Electronic Arts describes the new derelict system:

There’s nothing better than creating your own one of a kind car but what if you could take that one step further and build it from scrap? In Need for Speed Payback we’re adding a new type of car, something we’re calling Derelicts.

Derelicts are cars that you build up, from nothing but scrap, to stock and ultimately supercar. But to start any Derelict project, you’re going to need to find a chassis, from there on your one of a kind ride awaits.

Once you’ve found a chassis you’ll see it in your garage, waiting for you to find the parts that make it complete. If you don’t have an open slot available you’ll be prompted to finish or cancel your existing project or acquire an additional garage.

Alongside the chassis you’ll also need to locate four other parts; wheels, drivetrain and two unique parts that are specific to your chosen Derelict build. Each of the five parts that make up a Derelict can be found hidden throughout Fortune Valley.

You’ll be able to choose one Derelict project at a time to track and by doing so you’ll find clues and pointers showing where the parts you need may be located. The exact location will be up for you to pinpoint, get out there and explore.

Electronic Arts also revealed that those who pre-order the upcoming racing game will receive access to the Platinum Car Pack. This comes with five “uniquely customized and tuned iconic cars, and exclusive Platinum Blue Underglow and Tire Smoke Vanity Items.” The five vehicles are the following models:

  • Nissan 350Z 2008

  • Chevrolet Camaro SS 1967

  • Dodge Charger R/T 1969

  • Ford F-150 Raptor 2016

  • Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport 2016

Need for Speed Payback is set to release November 7, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
