Need for Speed Payback update introduces Speedcross races

EA is getting into the Christmas spirit by launching a new update to Need for Speed Payback, with the new Speedcross update adding a slew of new class of races, and much more.

Need for Speed Payback's new Speedcross races will see you driving through point-based competitions where all the cool stuff matters the most: jumps, high speeds, drifting, and destruction. NFS Payback developer Ghost Games is also throwing in new cars, steering wheel support (why didn't it launch with this?!), and multiplayer Drift Run competitions.

You'll need to own the Deluxe Edition version of the game in order to play the Speedcross races as it's paid DLC, but all of the new cars, multiplayer additions, and even steering wheel support are all free.
