Ghost Games made the announcement that Need For Speed Payback online free roam will be available anytime this year. It is not a new feature though, but it is definitely one that has been greatly missed.
The announcement was made through the official Need For Speed Twitter account saying “Online Free Roam coming 2018, Happy New Year from everyone at Need For Speed!”

The amazing thing about this is that it will not come as a paid DLC but will be free for everybody. As seen in the comments section of the tweet, somebody asked if it is a paid DLC and Need For Speed answers that it is “Free for everyone”.
The online free roam mode is actually not new to the game. It debuted in 2015’s Need For Speed. So getting to have the same mode once again is a great announcement for many.
There is no specific date as to when it will be launched, just that it will be coming out this year. Need For Speed’s reply in Twitter says “Still being worked on, once it’s locked down you’ll get your date.”
Need For Speed Payback is already available launching on November 10, 2017. The game is available to be played on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Since the Need For Speed’s launch, its progression system has been criticized by players. A new progression update has been released to make the fixes for this though.
