Online Free Roam Coming to NFS Payback In Future Update

Need For Speed PaybackOther 16 January 2, 2018 by

The folks at Ghost Games rang in the new year with Need for Speed Payback news. As it turns out, a fan-favorite feature is returning in the form of online free roam.

The news comes courtesy of the game’s official Twitter account:

“Now wait a minute,” you’re no doubt thinking, “wasn’t that in 2015’s Need for Speed?” Yes, yes it was. Somewhere between that game and Payback’s November 2017 launch, Ghost cut the cruise-friendly mode. Of course, it also cut the always-online requirement — something other games have adopted to varying levels — so you win some, you lose some.

With nothing but the tweet to go on, it’s unclear when players can expect the mode to return. We’re also left to wonder if the return of online free roam was planned from the beginning, or if it’s a direct response to post-launch fan feedback. Either way, we’re sure fans will welcome its returns.

In other Payback news, Ghost recently expanded the title with the Speedcross DLC. Stay tuned for any further content announcements that may come alongside the online free roam later this year.
