If you desperately enjoy Payday 2 from Overkill Software and have found yourself attached to the game, you'll be able to enjoy the game even more over the next two years as Overkill plans to unleash even more DLC for the game under publisher 505 Games.
Over on the Steam community page Overkill posted a message letting gamers know that they will continue to support Payday 2 over the next couple of years, with Overkill producer Almir Listo writing...
“We love working on PAYDAY 2 and look forward taking care of our game for two more years, making new free updates, paid DLC's and awesome campaigns together with the community. This is possible because we signed a new deal together with our publishing partner 505 games. Thanks to them, we can continue focusing on making PAYDAY 2 better and better.
Playing Payday 2 makes it known that the team actually does love working on the game. The content feels as if it's made by an enthusiastic group of developers. There's a fresh feeling of fun attached to a lot of the maps, weapons and design mechanics.
This isn't one of those games where it feels like Overkill was trying to hit preset margins just for the sake of doing so, but they actually wanted to achieve something fun and thrilling with Payday 2. Just about every map in the game has a dynamic design to it so it doesn't just feel like something tossed together and churned out just for the sake of having x amount of maps in the game.
Payday 2 originally came out back in 2013 and has managed to keep a strong audience attached to it and even accomplished the rare feat of making back its budget in pre-orders alone.
Over the past two years the team have been rolling out new guns, new maps, new modes and new ways to customize the characters.
For players worried about diving into the game and getting left behind or being outclassed, don't. Payday 2 is one of those games where it's very welcoming to newbies so long as you start off slow and work your way up without trying to do long, overkill-level missions once you hop into the game. I found most of the community to be generally accepting and rarely had any problems with other players – of course, there are those times where an intense mission that hinges on going haywire will sometimes bring out the worst in people, but hey... it happens.
Another thing that keeps Payday 2's community fairly active is that not everyone has to have the latest and greatest DLC to enjoy it. So long as the host has the DLC then everyone who joins the lobby gets to play it as well.
You can look for more content to release for the game over the course of the next two years.
