2. Need for Speed Payback
If you’re a Need for Speed fan, it’s likely that 2015’s Need for Speed reboot left a bitter taste in your mouth, as it clearly wasn’t the most inspired entry in the series to date. But publisher Electronic Arts is looking to bounce back this year for Need for Speed Payback, a new entry in the franchise which boasts several new features and improvements which could make it a racing come to watch out for when it’s released this fall.
It’s also welcome that those wanting to play single player will be able to do this offline too, plus judging by the trailer below it’s clear that both the car models and Fortune Valley (the game’s setting) will be looking particularly good in EA’s upcoming racer. And given that this game will be enhanced for the Xbox One X, owners of Microsoft’s console can expect to play this at 30 frames per second and native 4K resolution, meaning this could be the prettiest Need for Speed game yet when it hits shelves later this year.
Release date: November 10.
