Most of these trophies/achievements seem very simple to obtain, with most being your standard Need for Speed objectives – reaching Max Rep Level, assemble a Derelict Car, Buy all Garage spaces, equip a full setup from each of the five brands, Beat an Autolog Recommendation, Take down 100 cops, Complete all Jumps/Drift Zones/Speed Runs etc. There are also 20 hidden trophies/achievements to collect, which are no doubt tied to Need for Speed Payback's Single Player campaign.
However, the list reveals new information about the game that we’ve previously not heard of, including the inclusion of Jumps and smashable Billboard collectibles, Visual Customization Points, Speed Traps, the return of Activities from Need for Speed (2015), Ranked Multiplayer Speedlists and most interestingly, the Roaming Racers League.
Jumps and Billboards were forms of collectibles in Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012), coming from previous Need for Speed developers roots with Burnout Paradise. While this could be a controversial inclusion for some that disliked the Burnout-influenced Need for Speed games, they add to the list of side-activities players can expect to complete in free-roam.
Activities, which were added to Need for Speed (2015) towards the end of its content cycle, are returning – with trophies confirming Speed Run activities will return and will have a 3-star rating system based on how long it takes to complete them. While the only other type of activity was Drift Corners, it seems as if Drift Corners will return asDrift Zones.
While unclear if they are a collectible, activity or event type, Speed Traps will be featured in Need for Speed Payback. In Need for Speed Most Wanted (2005), Speed Traps were events requiring racers to drive at their fastest possible speed past multiple speed cameras to get the highest accumulated speed record at the end of the race. In Need for Speed Most Wanted (2012) however, these were merely collectible types which were triggered by in a similar fashion, but stored in a Autolog Leaderboard for friends to try beat your highest top speed.
Not much has been revealed for Need for Speed Payback’s multiplayer component as of yet other than the game is no longer always-online. Based on the trophy list, Speedlists, which were also added into Need for Speed (2015), will make a return as one of the online PvP modes. With trophies for completing all events in a Speedlist and completing 10 Ranked Speedlists, it could be possible we may see Casual and Competitive Speedlist types.
Roaming Racers League is the most interesting, where it sounds as if Need for Speed Payback will feature AI racers in free-roam which will be a part of different clubs. There are two trophies with descriptions pointing to this - "Beat all the members of the 1% Club roaming racers league in the NISSAN GT-R" and "Beat all 4 Roaming Racer Bosses". By the sounds of it, there will be a league comprising of four clubs (one of which called the 1% Club), requiring you to go up against each of the members before unlocking the clubs boss to beat them. If this is what the Roaming Racer League ends up being in Payback, this adds an interesting new level to the existence of AI racers roaming in the world than just randomly challenging them to a race.
Overall the trophy/achievement list seems very obtainable much like Need for Speed (2015)'s list while at the same time filled with fun challenges to do, which I'll definitely be going for the Platinum Trophy in. Lets just hope if Ghost plan on adding DLC-related trophies/achievements in the future, they're not as difficult as getting Gold medals on all Prestige Mode events (Seriously, I still can't do it!) Will you be going for the Platinum Trophy/ 1000 Gamerscore in Need for Speed Payback, or do you not care for trophies/achievements and just care about the new information that came from their descriptions?
