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 DC 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 big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, 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.

Key Features

  • Rob Banks with Friends – Players must choose their crew carefully, because when the job goes down they will need the right mix of skills on their side.
  • CRIMENET – The dynamic contract database lets gamers pick and choose from available jobs by connecting with local contacts such as Vlad the Ukrainian, shady politician “The Elephant”, and South American drug trafficker Hector, all with their own agenda and best interests in mind.
  • PAYDAY gun play and mechanics on a new level – firing weapons and zip tying civilians never felt so good.
  • Dynamic Scenarios – No heist ever plays out the same way twice. Every single scenario has random geometry or even rare events.
  • Choose Your Skills – As players progress they can invest in any of four special Skill Trees: the Mastermind, the Enforcer, the Ghost and the Technician. Each features a deep customization tree of associated skills and equipment to master, and they can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate heister.
  • More Masks than Ever – PAYDAY 2 features a completely new mask system, giving players the ability to craft their own unique mask together with a pattern and a color combination.
  • Weapons and Modifications – A brand new arsenal for the serious heister, covering everything from sniper and assault rifles to compact PDWs and SMGs. Once you’ve settled for a favorite, you can modify it with optics, suppressors, fore grips, reticles, barrels, frames, stocks, all of which will affect the performance of your weapon. There are also purely aesthetic enhancements – why not go for the drug lord look with polished walnut grips for your nine?
  • Play It Your Way – Each job allows for multiple approaches, such as slow and stealthy ambushes, to running in guns blazing. Hit the target any way you want, and watch as the heist unfolds accordingly.

PAYDAY 2: Update 100!

News

PAYDAY 2 was easily one of the top games on Steam until last year when developer Overkill added microtransactions in the Black Market update. The move resulted in a massive fallout within the community, and it wasn't too hard to figure out why: not only is there a disdain of microtransactions in general among gamers, but the developer had promised in 2013 that it wouldn't implement them in the first place.

Now, it looks like Overkill and parent company Starbreeze are looking to get back in the good graces of its once thriving community, announcing that it has acquired the full rights to the PAYDAY franchise from publisher 505 Games, and one of the first things it will do with its complete ownership is remove microtransactions from PAYDAY 2.

In a video that accompanied the release, Producer Almir Listo begins by saying: "We are freeing up the black market."

"Starting with the next update in PAYDAY 2, any old-generation safes in the loot drop will stop to drop," he continued. "Any new-generation safe, going forward, will drop completely for free. You will still be able to trade all the old and new generation safes and items using the Steam Marketplace. Your prices [and] supply and demand will still continue to shape the PAYDAY 2 marketplace. Any new generation safes that drop will be dropping completely for free, and will continue to have different rarities and qualities, depending on what kind of items you get. The only difference is, now you open them for free."

Update 100 is live!

AMA WITH FAQ ON TWITCH.TV TOMORROW!

Tomorrow OVERKILL_Joakim, OVERKILL_Hampe and OVERKILL_Jules are doing an AMA on the Starbreeze Twitch.tv Channel between 4pm-6pm EST. We will go through as many questions as we can asked in the question thread. Make sure to pop in and join us! FAQ answered on the stream will be posted in this section for people to review in the coming days.

UPDATE CHANGELOG 100

PAYDAY 2 bundle files have been split up into smaller parts. Instead of having 15 files that are 1.5 GB each, we now have 60 files that are 400 MB each. What that means is that it will require less harddisk space to install a patch.

For example: If you have a patch that is 10 MB, then you need to make an backup of the 1.5 GB file which will require a disk space of 1.5 GB + 10 MB. With smaller files it will require a disk space of 410 MB instead.

In short, starting from the next update, microtransactions will be gone in its entirety.

Surprisingly, this isn't the only big news that Starbreeze announced. In addition to microtransactions being removed from PAYDAY 2, it also confirmed Payday 3 will be coming in the future. It didn't say this specifically, rather, the agreement with 505 Games for PAYDAY includes a note about money made from Payday 3.

Specifically, it says 505 will get a 33 percent revenue share of Starbreeze's net revenues from future sales of PAYDAY 3, capped at $40 million after Starbreeze, and after Starbeeze has fully recouped its development and marketing costs. In addition, 505 will retain full net revenue from PAYDAY 2 on the Steam platform starting retroactively from May 1st, 2016.

In the meantime, Starbreeze pledged to continue developing new content for PAYDAY 2 for at least 18 more months. This means that players can expect more content for the game through the end of 2017.

There's also an E3 teaser that starts around the 3:45 mark of the video featuring Dallas, Chains, and Dragan. You can watch it separately below:

"We've made it clear that Payday 2 will have no microtransactions whatsever (shame on you if you thought otherwise)" quote from Overkill. 2 years later... we have microtransactions, for drills to open safes to get 'skins' that give stat boosts for certain weapons, DLC weapons you have to pay money for to unlock... Ugh.

It is a good game. Great for coop-playing!
But it has severe graphic problems. Try this semi-official natural light mod on steam called GEM v3 from Andrew:

Steamcommunity.com

It won't get you banned.
(GPU-Forced Anti-Aliasing still doesn't work for me though.., makes the image dark as hell!)
If anyone has a solution for this, please say so..

Thanks

This is a leap forward of the original. I'd say its worth getting the standard version of at the very least.

*Update* Kickday 2, the robbery repetition simulator. The free additional content is nice, the developers are a good bunch but the game and the people who play it... not so great. Do ANYTHING that isn't perfect and chances are you're getting kicked, which means generally you're going to go into every heist doing the same exact god damn thing unless you dare to incur the wrath of the host. 7/10 -------------------- Initial Review The first Payday felt like Call of Duty: Robber Simulation(v0.2).
