Electronic Arts has revealed new information about Need for Speed Payback, and the world that players will be driving around in. Called Fortune City, the huge land mass features several distinct districts and plenty of landmarks for players to see. Not only have they released a new video showing off the world, but they’ve also released the complete Need for Speed Payback world map, which you can view below:

Here’s how Electronic Arts describes Need for Speed Payback‘s map:

The smell of burnt rubber lingers through the city streets, a remnant of the activities that were carried out during the early hours of the morning. But the darkness of night now gives way to the light of day as the city of Silver Rock begins to spark into life as the sun breaks across the entire Fortune Valley region. Head out into Liberty Desert, traverse the mountain roads of Mount Providence or simply park up and admire the sunset from Silver Canyon. Fortune Valley has it all.

Some people may be hesitant that Need for Speed still contains a cinematic-driven campaign mode. Unlike the last time around, however, this campaign appears to be focused on nothing but high-octane thrills, akin to a Fast & Furious movie, or, indeed, the Need for Speed movie which released in 2014. It is a bit early to tell if the campaign will be a success, but for the time being our focus was on how the racing felt.

Need for Speed has always let you play out your high-speed racing fantasies. Ghost Games knows how to present a racing game in cinematic form. This is their third attempt at such an entry, and it appears that the cinematics are taking a bit more of a backseat to the action. Time will tell how successful Ghost Games will be at it this time around. The driving is solid, and now we wait for Need for Speed Payback’s November 10 release date.

Need for Speed Payback launches on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Preordering gets you Platinum Blue Underglow and Tire smoke, while preordering the Deluxe Edition gets you the above plus early access on November 7.
