Need For Speed PayBack February Update
Introducing Hangout, which will allow you to explore Fortune Valley alongside your friends and other members of the Need for Speed Community and you can show off your cars. This is the place where you’ll be going when you want an impromptu car meet with your friends, the place to take cool Snapshots of your crew, and the place for you to just cruise the streets (and off-road).
A new item is being added to the Tune-up shop, in the form of Catch-up packs. These packs allow you to speed up the progression of your cars, meaning you can take a car from stock to top tier in a much quicker time-frame.

- Reaching the end of chapter 3 unlocks the level 6 pack
- Reaching the end of chapter 4 unlocks the level 11 pack
- Reaching the end of chapter 5 unlocks the level 16 pack
Each pack can be purchased with in-game bank and will cost:
- 71,400 for the level 6 pack
- 131,00 for the level 11 pack
- 180,000 for the level 16 pack.

Scrap all Unequipped Parts
To help improve inventory management we are adding the ability to sell or trade-in all currently unequipped Speed Cards. Simply highlight a part category and you’ll be given the ability to sell or trade-in all the unequipped cards within that category.
Snapshot Pro Improvements
Made some tweaks and improvements to Snapshot Pro, the first one being that you can now take Snapshots while in a takedown sequence. Alongside this, the update also increased the distance the camera can move further away from the car, giving you a little more freedom to take that perfect shot. Some minor tweaks were also made to the sensitivity, making movement across bigger distances a bit quicker.
Objects in the background have had their quality level increased when you enter the mode, allowing you to take even higher quality Snapshots. The ability to toggle dirt on and off has also been included.
In addition to these changes, a new filter option is now added to the game which includes cinematic, Cool, Warm, Grunge, Vintage, Desaturated, Lo-Fi, Vivid Retro, Infra Zone and Monochrome Monitor.
Snapshot Pro will also be usable within Alldrive Hangouts.
Front Menu Improvements
The new update made some adjustments to the front menu. Nothing major, just small quality of life improvements to help you stay up to date with Need for Speed and to get into your chosen area (campaign or multiplayer) much quicker.
