The $99.99 set, launching this Thursday, will include the original game along with all previously released DLC, plus a handful of physical items: a Premium Dallas Mask, themed Duffle Bag, key ring, and special limited edition branded box. The bundle is only available through 505 Games’ online store. Crimewave Edition is itself a revamped version of the original Payday 2 with improved visuals, new playable characters, a new perk system, and a greater degree of customization within the skill tree.
505 Games will be releasing a new version of Payday 2. Set to go live for download on June 16, Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will feature an improved frame rate, textures, and resolution. In addition to all of the available download packs and content updates, Crimewave Edition will also include new characters, contracts, enemies, heists, jobs, and masks. Plus a new perk system, pre-planning stage, and stealth-based fifth skill tree. A pre-order bonus, Hard Time Loot Bag, is also up for grabs and is detailed below.
The PC version of Payday 2 has received a new DLC pack today, Big Bank. The $6.99 download features the Benevolent Bank, which sports better vaults and more guards than any previous bank but also houses bigger vaults and rewards. Since this is the biggest score to date, players will be able to engage a pre-planning phase to check out blueprints and choose power-ups, such as better weapons and getaway drivers. The pack also adds a new contact, The Dentist, voiced by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito.
Overkill’s follow-up to their Heat-styled shooter Payday: The Heist, Payday 2, is now available for 360, PC, and PS3. As one of the four-member Payday crew, players will pull off a series of dangerous heists using the new Crime.net system. The sequel features four skill trees (Enforcer, Ghost, Mastermind, and Tactician), a weapon-modification system, and a new mask creator.
Payday 2, the sequel to 2011’s bank-heist-themed shooter Payday: The Heist, will be available in retail for 360 and PS3. The original was published by Sony Online and available online for PC and PS3, but the sequel’s publisher, 505 Games, announced today that it is expanding the series to include a physical release for the console versions, in addition to a digital release for PC.
Payday: The Heist has launched on the PS Network. The squad-based first-person shooter pits a four-man crew of bank robbers against six dynamic heist scenarios. Alone or with friends, players will take hostages and share ammo and med kits with their cohorts as they face off against both the FBI and SWAT.
After being hit with a slight delay, Sony Online’s squad-based first-person shooter Payday: The Heist is back on track. The new launch date is right around the corner, too: October 18. The PSN-only release will pit a four-man crew of bank robbers against six dynamic heist scenarios. Alone or with friends, players will be able to take hostages, share ammo and med kits, and face off against both the FBI and SWAT.
Sony Online’s PC and PSN squad-based first-person shooter Payday: The Heist has been slightly delayed. Originally scheduled to launch on October 4, Sony has announced that The Heist will now be released “later this month” – not too bad. Would-be Point Breakers can grab The Heist on release for $19.99.
Sony Online Entertainment announced the launch dates and prices today for three of their upcoming PSN titles. The line-up—Payday: The Heist, Rochard, and Sideway: New York—includes everything from platformers to first-person shooters and will launch for either $9.99 or $19.99 throughout the fall.
