Need for Speed Payback is also changing its loot crates and progression

It looks like Star Wars Battlefront II isn’t the only game changing loot box systems after the fact. Need for Speed Payback is changing its loot boxes and progression system to be more generous.

Inside the loot boxes, you will find more Rep and Bank, two resources you need to get anywhere in the game. You will also gain more Rep and Bank outside of the loot boxes by completing events or beating Roaming Racers.

Ghost Games spokesperson F8RGE detailed the changes: “We’ve been using community feedback, along with our own in-game data and have come up with a number of changes, many of which are in the process of going live. Our aim with these changes is to make the progression, especially around the ownership of cars a much more enjoyable experience.”

  • Increased the amount of REP awarded by taking part in events.
  • Increased the amount of Bank awarded by taking part in events.
  • Bait crates now reward increased REP.
  • Bait crates now reward increased Bank.
  • Competing against a Roaming Racer will reward you with increased REP.
  • Competing against a Roaming Racer will reward you with increased Bank.
  • Air Suspension will now appear more frequently within Shipments.
  • Slightly increased REP and Bank for finishing an event outside of first place.

These are supposed to be “phase one” of changes and more tweaks will appear in the future. One of the next things to get improved is the Tune-up shops, which will have improved quality and level of parts in stock.

In Dawid’s review of Payback, he mentioned that the progression system was clumsy and confusing and held the game back.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.

    All these changes are coming not from community feedback because they don’t care about such things…they are coming from the gambling investigations regarding loot boxes that are being conducted by European countries.

    Kinda on the fence about this . The game got a little too easy after the update , I went from buying 1 or 2 cars a day to 4-5.

  • still not good enough.

    talk to us again when you’ve SCRAPPED the exploitative gambleboxes.
