Payday 2 – What Will Your Heist Look Like?


Payday 2 is coming in just five days, and Overkill has been periodically posting new videos of it’s own internal crime spree. Below you’ll see a great example of how a typical heist might play out. Four members of the dev team got together to show off their criminal competencies, and ended up successfully knocking off a DC area bank.

You’ll hear the team talking about different character classes that provide varied, yet essential benefits. The ghost can slip in and case the joint gathering vital intel, while the mastermind wards off law enforcement by impersonating a bank guard, and the technician goes to work on the vault. The enforcer is on hand to wipe out police if things get ugly, and from what we’ve seen, most heists boil down to a shootout at some point.


Payday 2 is set to arrive on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC August 13, 2013.
