It seems to be a trend these days to release highly anticipated games and DLC with a nice little smattering of free goodies on the side. That description definitely applies to Overkill Software's latest digital release for Payday 2 called the “Big Bank”.
Using the game's in-engine assets, Overkill Software put together a creative new promotional trailer for Payday 2's upcoming DLC called the Big Bank Heist.
PC Gamer posted up some new visual information for Payday 2's upcoming Big Bank DLC. It follows up on the Armored Transport DLC that recently released not too long ago.
Payday 2 will receive a free "Death Wish" DLC pack today. This add-on provides a brand-new difficulty level to challenge veterans of the co-op shooter.
Say what you will about the comedic stylings of one Dane Cook, the dude was spot-on about one thing: Pretty much everybody wants to be a part of one of those bank heists ripped from a big budget movie. This week, PlayStation Plus subscribers can do exactly that, as Payday 2 joins the Instant Game Collection for the PlayStation 3. There are also a few sales available, for those of you who fall in the small percentage of people who have never wanted to yell “Everybody, down on the floor!”
If you thought the January PlayStation Plus lineup was pretty outstanding (which it certainly was), then you may want to brace yourself for another dousing in awesome sauce as Sony announces upcoming titles for February, including a spot on the Instant Game Collection for games like Metro: Last Light, Outlast and Street Fighter X Tekken.
You won't find games like that or Remember Me, which I forgot about – or the typical AAA titles on this list. I'm not going full hipster on you but given the crappy selection of 2013's offerings I settled for a bunch of games that never would have made it on a “Best of” list had this been any other year.
Overkill Software has a Christmas gift for you Payday 2 players: a new mission. The "Charlie Santa" heist, detailed in a new trailer and teaser site, will be free to download starting on December 16th.
If you already thought the Bulldozers in Payday 2 were mammoth monsters of another dimension, be prepared to gird thy loins and bunch thy Jimmies, because Overkill has recently released a massive patch for the PC version of Payday 2 that makes a number of changes, especially to how deadly the Bulldozers can be.
Starbreeze and Overkill Software have sent out word that their venture with 505 Games with publishing Payday 2 turned out to be a massive success, so much so that the entire first month of release for the game was nothing but profit.
I've finally played enough to give an impression on the pros and cons of Payday 2 after Overkill rolled out the latest update and I can firmly say that the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Now if you want a summary of the experience in traditional review format, you can check out Pete's review of Payday 2 right here. What follows is a no-holds-barred look at the good and bad in equal measure.
Overkill Software just released a new patch for the PC version of Payday 2 (poor console gamers still being left in the dust). The patch contains some massive updates, upgrades and fixes to some of the core gameplay mechanics, as well as slight tweaks to some skills, map layouts and the AI.
You know there's a lot of talk about Payday 2, the sequel to Overkill's seminal foray into digital armed robbery, Payday: The Heist. One of the things that's rarely discussed is the actual process in which a perfect heist can take place, where even if things go bad it's still oh-so-good.
Every movie heist is a well-planned disaster. No matter how carefully orchestrated the scheme, something goes awry. A cop arrives at the wrong time or a new security camera was installed in the bank overnight. Payday 2 puts you in the shoes of criminals trying to keep it together when the shit hits the fan. Like the heists it depicts, though, Payday 2 can be a bit of a mess as well.
This is still not a review but we might be getting close... or not. Anyway, Overkill/Starbreeze's PR sent out some review copies of the game to Gaming Blend's staff and we've taken the opportunity to play the game and enjoy some bits. One of the things that really stands out is the AI... yes, the AI.
