It’s official: Need For Speed Payback is getting a much requested update.
Players have been asking the developer, Ghost Games to add online free-roam since the game’s release so that players can drive around “Fortune Valley” with their online party group.
Today we got a hit in our inbox from EA saying that the feature, dubbed “Alldrive” is coming to NFS Payback via an update that is set to go out tomorrow (2-13-18).
While that is a much welcomed addition, Alldrive isn’t the only addition coming via the update tomorrow.
A new item will be added to tune-up shops called “Catch-Up Packs”.
Catch-Up packs are meant to speed up the progression of a vehicle which makes it possible to take a car form stock to maxed out in a shorter time.
There are three different packs (a level 6 pack, level 11 pack, and level 16 pack) and all three can be bought with in-game currency.
However, you can’t just buy the packs whenever you want. You have to reach certain points in the game first and the packs will be unlocked.
For example, you can’t buy a level 6 pack until you’ve reached the end of chapter 3 in the game.
Another much welcomed addition coming is the ability to scrap/sell all unequipped speed cards which should make inventory management much easier.
There is still more and if you want to read about all the changes there is a new blog post up on Need For Speed’s website which details everything coming in the update.

Earlier this year, Ghost confirmed to eager players that Free Roam, or as we call it, Alldrive, will be coming to Need for Speed Payback – but when!? The time has come, and Alldrive will be available with the latest update, starting tomorrow.
With the fan-requested update, players will be able to explore Fortune Valley alongside friends in Alldrive: Hangout. Whether cruising the streets together or just showing off your rides, Alldrive provides players an environment to socialize. In addition to the new gameplay feature, tomorrow’s update also features a handful of other items including new customization options, improvements to inventory management, the ability to take snapshots while in a takedown sequence, new camera angles and filters, and more.
