Online Free Roam Is Coming To Need For Speed Payback

Need for Speed Payback might not be the series revival that fans were hoping for see our review here – and was hampered by some of the same problems that dragged Star Wars Battlefront II through the mud, but Ghost Games have announced a great feature will return to the game this year.

Online Free Roam is coming back in 2018. This comes with the caveats (as posted by EA Community Manager Ben Walke on Reddit) that there are no further specifics and that the date will only be announced when certain, but that it will be a free update to the game.


Still, a nice announcement for those looking to get the best out of the game in the long term.

  1. As long as you can still play offline it’s fine for me. I don’t tend to play games like this online as there are far too many tossers that would rather crash into you than play properly. That happened to me in every race I did to get the online trophies for this game.

  2. I enjoyed the previous installment. But as Camdaz said it was always spoilt but idiots purposely crashing into you for s&%ts and giggles.
    This was one of the reasons I stopped playing and secondly my plus ran out not long after.
