The Play First trial for the upcoming Need for Speed Payback begins today. The trial, available through Origin Access, will let you play up to ten hours of the game.
Need for Speed Payback is big, dumb, 80s-inspired fun.
The first two chapters of the campaign will be available as part of the trial, as will the Highway Heist mission, which you’ll have seen before as part of Payback’s showing at E3. In the Heist, which you can watch the trailer for above, you’ll be tasked with stealing a Koenigsegg Regera (priced at a cool $1.9 million) from the back of a speeding lorry. It’s a wild ride.
The trial will also make multiplayer available, through Speedlists. Payback’s multiplayer has a ranked ladder that casts you as anything from Student Driver to ‘Legend’, and gives you access to new car parts, currency, and REP.
As with all Play First trials, you’ll only be able to play the game for a maximum of 10 hours, but if you choose to buy at the end of the trial, you’ll get a 10% discount. Any progress you make will also be carried over to the full version of the game.
Need for Speed Payback will release November 10, but Deluxe edition pre-orders grant access three days early.
