Need for Speed Payback's car customisation is insanely intricate

Martin Bigg On June 14, 2017

The Need for Speed 2015 reboot wasn't very well received, to say the least, but one aspect you couldn't fault was the extensive customisation that allowed you to modify cars with a range of aftermarket parts from real world tuning companies harking back to the fabled Need for Speed Underground series.

While Need for Speed Payback will be steering the series into a more action-centric direction with high-octane chase scenes and heist missions in addition to the traditional racing, customisation will return and will be expanded even further. As we learned before, the visual customisation elements from the 2015 reboot will be included in Payback with further tweaks, giving players more control over ride height and camber angles. Cars which had limited modification options in the previous game will also have new customisation options designed by Ghost Games. 



Similar to Forza Horizon's barn finds and The Crew's spec upgrade system, derelict cars will also be scattered around the map for players to discover in Need for Speed Payback, which can then be restored from collected scrap parts and upgraded to Super Build specifications ranging from Race, Drift, Drag, and Off-Road.



Using a Chevrolet Camaro SS, Volkswagen Beetle derelict car and Nissan 350Z, we explore the plethora of customisation options in Need for Speed Payback. If you ever wanted to fit an inappropriately large rear diffuser to a Volkswagen Beetle, now you can. Even the wheel options are insanely intricate, allowing you to swap, paint and resize the rims, paint the brake calipers and change the tires. 
 

Need for Speed Payback launches on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 10th.
