And outside of being able to drastically chop and change the look of a car, we get a distinct RPG vibe from the post-race car-part loot screens and all the numbers and such. A bit like how Ubisoft's The Crew worked. Called Performance Parts, they can either be purchased through an in-game shop (that you can drive to) or won through racing and other events.
Description-wise, yeah, there's definitely an RPG flavour to them.
The level of your parts is one of the most important factors when it comes to upgrading your performance. The higher the level, the more performance you’re going to get.
The level of your parts help determine the tier of your car. If you’ve got a car with a set of level 1 parts applied to it, it’ll be Tier 1.0. Equip another car with level 18 (maximum level) parts and the tier will increase to 3.99.
Also special parts with "perks" can be found or won to provide additional bonus stats. As an avid RPG fan, this sounds very cool. And as a huge fan of Forza Horizon 3, being able to find rusty old cars and then get involved in their restoration and customisation sounds even better.
After the E3 reveal that was more about trying to look like an action sequence from a Fast & Furious move, this latest look at Need For Speed Payback definitely has our hopes up. It launches November 10 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
