The lights are on
Payday 2 lets you live out your criminal aspirations from the safety of your own home. The four-player co-op game features a variety of heist-based missions that encourage players to either work together as a tightly coordinated team or suffer the consequences. A new developer walkthrough shows off how the game works with plenty of gameplay footage.
As you can see in the video below, players have to make snap decisions throughout their heists. Do you take hostages or take a more violent approach? Is it worth taking the time to grab all of the available cash and loot, or would it be less risky to grab what you can and slide out ASAP?
The game will be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 on August 13. The 360 and PS3 versions will also have collector's editions available for $59.99. It includes the game, as well as a mask, gloves, $100 bill wallet, and a soundtrack CD.
For more information on Payday 2, take a look at these screens from E3 and our earlier preview.
