The lights are on
Payday: The Heist, a cooperative first-person shooter from Overkill Software, came out two years ago to a mediocre reception. Payday 2 looks to seriously improve upon its predecessor, offering 20 times the amount of missions, more distinctly unique classes, and powerful new player abilities.
The core of the Payday series, however – robbing banks with a team of heavily armed, clown mask-wearing specialists – is still very much intact. Check out some new images from Payday 2 below.

Looks a bit better than the first one. Hopefully it is better
I would like to see this but in a Counter-Strike mindset where one team are the robbers and the other team are the police/SWAT responders. I think it would be cool to give the robbers a small time period to start the heist and setup a formation before the SWAT team gets in and then the objective is escape with the money VS take down the robbers.
Only the PS3 version was mediocre. The PC version was actually a ton of fun with friends and generally well received. It got an 8/10 from Gameinformer and currently has a 76/100 on Metacritic.
Will be picking this one up. Does sound a lot better. I liked the first one just thought it was a little laggy at times.
I've been keeping an eye on this. I never played the first but any chance to gun down cops and steal money sounds good to me... In a video game, of course. =/
Certainly looks good, hopefully the realistic gunplay carries over as well.
