505 Games and Overkill Software have revealed that PayDay 2 will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this August. The four player co-op game will have fans putting on the masks of the original crew and embarking on an epic crime spree full of bloody mayhem!
From the Press Release
Global video game publisher 505 Games and leading independent developer Overkill Software, a Starbreeze Studio, are pleased to announce that the upcoming title PAYDAY 2, sequel to the 2011 hit PAYDAY: The Heist, will no longer be limited to digital download and will now additionally be released globally at retail for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
Game Director on PAYDAY 2 David Goldfarb said, “We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill – there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out – so PAYDAY 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live® and PlayStation®Network alone.”
“It’s an incredible position to be in, having a game that just keeps growing and getting better all the time,” added Head of Global Brand at 505 Games, Tim Woodley. “We wanted to do everything we could to make a game that truly fits the vision of the team at Overkill but most importantly delivers an exciting, rewarding experience for the player – be they a long-time fan or new to the series. We’re expecting great things from PAYDAY 2 and are really looking forward to working with our retail partners all over the world to make it the huge success it deserves to be.”
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree. The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to major league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in D.C., why not participate in the local community and run a few political errands? Up to four friends co-operate on the hits and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
PAYDAY 2 will release for consoles and PC, via Steam, in August 2013.
