Watch Need for Speed Payback running in 4K at 60fps

The latest Need for Speed Payback video is a reminder that racing games are frequently gorgeous, especially if you’ve got a penchant for car porn. And they look even better in 4K, running at 60fps. 

I, lamentably, own neither a 4K monitor, nor a rig that could run any modern game at that resolution while maintaining 60fps, so I just have to sit here and dream. Need for Speed Payback looks striking, nonetheless. 

This is the second Need for Speed video to slide out of Gamescom, with the first showing off a 2018 BMW M5 in a high-speed chase with some cops.

Fraser is the UK online editor and has actually met The Internet in person. With over a decade of experience, he's been around the block a few times, serving as a freelancer, news editor and prolific reviewer. Strategy games have been a 30-year-long obsession, from tiny RTSs to sprawling political sims, and he never turns down the chance to rave about Total War or Crusader Kings. He's also been known to set up shop in the latest MMO and likes to wind down with an endlessly deep, systemic RPG. These days, when he's not editing, he can usually be found writing features that are 1,000 words too long. He thinks labradoodles are the best dogs but doesn't get to write about them much.
