Need For Speed Payback Undergoing Further Changes
Need for Speed Payback developer Ghost Games has already been tweaking the game to respond to user-criticism regarding the game's grind, bugs, and other complaints (check out Miller's review for more info), and now it says further changes are in store.
In a blog post, the dev says an upcoming patch is the latest improvement to the game aimed at basically giving players higher-quality speed cards at a faster rate to aid progression.
Here are the patch contents with text straight from EA:
- Tune-up shops now stock higher quality parts.
- Improved quality of cards from targeted rolls in the Tune-up Shops.
- Increased the level on parts awarded from winning events.
- Multiple fixes to Improve stability.
- Improved game performance.
No date has been given for the patch, but the post says it should be "soon."

These post-release changes are nice, but like Star Wars Battlefront II, it's too bad the dev didn't see them during development, which would have saved everyone a lot of trouble. Apart from the continued existence of microtransactions, the game also has many technical issues that hopefully Ghost Games continues to address.
