Need for Speed Payback has been announced ahead of the EA Play E3 2017 event in Los Angeles.
The 2017 Need for Speed game has a November 10 release date for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Described as an explosive adventure, Payback is said to include a series of heist missions, car battles, cop pursuits and "jaw dropping set pieces".
Players will also be able to build their ideal ride thanks to extensive customisation options.
"Need for Speed returns this year to challenge what players expect from racing games,” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer.
“We’re still delivering everything our fans love about the franchise – the deepest customization, an impressive roster of cars, intense races and open world pursuits – but with Need for Speed Payback, we’re bringing together all those elements in an all new blockbuster driving experience.
"From the story, to the different characters you can drive as, to the varied missions, to the edge-of-your-seat moments, this is our vision for what action driving entertainment means today."
