After the disappointment of 2015’s rebooted Need for Speed, developer Ghost Games is going full-on Fast & Furious with 2017’s edition, Need for Speed Payback. Scheduled to release on 10th November, the new entry’s set in Fortune City, where you’ll be racing against a syndicate named the House that controls the city’s casinos, criminals, and cops.

Here’s what the blurb from a leaked Amazon listing says:

Play a variety of challenges and events as Tyler, the racer; Mac, the showman, and; Jess, the wheelman. Each driver must take on races, missions, and challenges to earn the respect of the valley's underground and compete in the Ultimate race to finally take down the House. From insane Heist missions to devastating car battles to jaw-dropping set piece moments, Need for Speed Payback delivers an edge-of-your-seat, action-driving fantasy.

A full reveal’s due within the hour, and we’ll update as soon as we know more. The most important question of all: will it have FMV cut-scenes?

Update: The reveal trailer is embedded above.
