There’s nothing better than creating your own one of a kind car but what if you could take that one step further and build it from scrap? In Need for Speed Payback we’re adding a new type of car, something we’re calling Derelicts.
Derelicts are cars that you build up, from nothing but scrap, to stock and ultimately supercar. But to start any Derelict project, you’re going to need to find a chassis, from there on your one of a kind ride awaits.
Once you’ve found a chassis you’ll see it in your garage, waiting for you to find the parts that make it complete. If you don’t have an open slot available you’ll be prompted to finish or cancel your existing project or acquire an additional garage.
Alongside the chassis you’ll also need to locate four other parts; wheels, drivetrain and two unique parts that are specific to your chosen Derelict build. Each of the five parts that make up a Derelict can be found hidden throughout Fortune Valley.
You’ll be able to choose one Derelict project at a time to track and by doing so you’ll find clues and pointers showing where the parts you need may be located. The exact location will be up for you to pinpoint, get out there and explore.
You’ve found your chassis, wheels, drivetrain and two unique parts, what next? This is where the fun really starts and you take your Derelict from Scrap to Stock. Once you’ve completed a Derelict project you’ll have the option to convert it into a drivable car. More importantly you’ll be given the choice of turning it into one of the five car classes.
Unlike regular cars, Derelicts have the ability to be each and every car class available. Ever wanted to turn a Chevrolet Bel Air into a off-road racing monster? Well now’s your chance, but choose wisely, once your decision has been made there’s no going back.
Once you’ve selected your car class your Derelict will now be a fully drivable car and will act and have the same options available as a regular car. Visually customize it, apply performance parts and give it a wicked paint job. This wouldn’t be Need for Speed if we didn’t push things a little bit further and that’s where Super Builds come in.
Upgrade your Derelict to Tier 3 and you’ll be able to turn it into a Super Build . Allowing you to unlock more extreme visual customization, turning what was once a piece of scrap into an absolute beast.
Once you’ve completed your Derelict the original stock version will become available at one of the dealerships. For example, you turn your Ford Mustang 1965 into an off-road animal but want to add a race version to your collection? Head to the dealership that specializes in classic cars, hand over your cash and the car is yours.
In total there are five Derelict projects for you to complete. The Chevrolet Bel Air 1955, Ford Mustang 1965, NISSAN Fairlady ZG 1971, Chevrolet C10 Stepside Pickup 1965 and the Volkswagen Beetle 1963.
Get out there, start your Derelict project and turn it from Scrap, to Stock to Supercar.
