If you’re reading this, Payday 2 is almost out – and the Overkill team is off on well-deserved vacations planning our next heist. It’s hard to express just how excited we are about the game finally being available for everyone to play. But soon, everyone will be able to mask up and get their heists started for real!
Players new to Payday have a lot to look forward to. Payday 2 is an intense and dynamic first person four player co-operative robbery game unlike any other. It’s equal parts RPG and action game now, allowing players to rob banks, jewelry stores, art galleries, and a hell of a lot more. Even, uh, unusual jobs.
Our angle, even on the first Payday, has been “make a game where you feel like you are the bank robber” and we’ve referenced everything from Breaking Bad to Heat to make that happen, we want to make players feel like they’re really experiencing all the tension and high-stakes action of the life of crime.
