News: Some changes are coming to Need for Speed Payback that should improve the progression system overall.


Need for Speed Payback was released a few weeks back. Ever since the release EA has been releasing patches and updating content based on the feedback they have been receiving. Once such change is decreasing the amount of time for parts within the tune up shops to refresh. Instead of being 30 minutes that time has now been reduced to 10 minutes.

In addition to that there have been changes to ways that events, bait crates and roaming racers work. By completing any of these tasks in the game you will now earn more in-game currency as well as more REP. This increase in winnings should allow you to purchase more cars as well as more parts. Your increase in REP will net you more shipments which will in turn lead to more bank, more part tokens and more vanity items.

If you play in Ranked Speedlists you will also notice an increased amount of parts that are being paid out. If you happen to win the Speedlist then you are guaranteed a new part. They have also increased the frequency in which they are rewarded for simply playing in the Speedlists. A list of everything that is being changed is below:
