The upcoming Need for Speed game Need For Speed Payback has unveiled the first of what will be a large number of different glamorous cars. In this case, the car is the Nissan Fairlady 240ZG, a 1971 compact car that players will not only be able to drive, but also customize.
One of the main mechanics of Need for Speed Payback is that players won’t be buying their cars like they would in a normal driving game. Instead, players will be digging up wrecked cars from the desert and restoring them back to their former glory, and the 240ZG is only the most recently revealed car.
Need for Speed Payback focuses around a trio of drivers in the city of Fortune Valley, who team up together to take down the sinister crime syndicate known as the House, a cartel that controls the city’s underworld. While you don’t have the resources of the House, you’ll still be able to grab a bunch of cool vintage cars to pit against the House’s more modern vehicles.
When you’re not dealing with the House, you’ll be able to drive cars like your Nissan Fairlady 240ZG around the map in an open world driving mode, and the best part is you won’t need to be constantly connected, either; Need for Speed Payback will also have an offline singleplayer mode, a rare sight in gaming these days.
The Fairlady will likely only be the most recent of a number of different vintage cars that you’ll be able to drive in the game, and since you’re rebuilding them nearly from scratch you’ll be able to customize them however you want.
These include engines, brakes, gearshifts, and more, all with different levels and abilities to suit a specific driving style.
