About Payday 2
A few years after the original Payday game launch, this newer 505 Games published 1st person shooter title as a sequel to “The Heist” back in 2013. This second installment was launched for Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, and a “Crimewave Edition” was released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later.
The theme centers around a gang that comes to the Washington metropolitan area to perform a heist. Players can control 1 of the 22 members of the crime syndicate and can perform heists alone or with other teammates.
You can participate in various sprees against banks, retail, and even armored cars. There is also player customization which improved the graphical interface and play-ability.
When a heist ends, the player is presented with a screen with several cards. One of the cards is the “Payday” that the game is named after. There are also bonus cards that include weapons, skins, masks, and other colors or materials for those items.
Inside the game, purchases for customized masks are included, and some even contain features such as night vision optics.
An upcoming sequel, “Payday 3,” is in development. The newest title will be scheduled for a release later in 2023 by Koch Media on Unreal Engine. More About Payday 2.
