Payday: The Heist – New game coming to PC / PSN

We have some pretty exciting news now for those of you that enjoy playing squad-based cooperative shooter games, as we’ve just heard about a brand new game that’s coming to both PC and PSN. The title we are talking about is the recently announced Payday: The Heist.

What’s the game all about I hear you ask? Well, according to a recent article by Drew Cohen over at, the Payday: The Heist game places a player in the shoes of a ‘hardened career criminal,’ who’s attempting to carry out a number of large-scale heists.

The game’s developer Overkill Software promises gamers the opportunity to infiltrate a to-secret, high-security facility, blast their way through a bank vault and even manage hostages in a hijacked armored car. It doesn’t stop there either, as players will also have the law to deal with.

As Drew notes, law enforcement agents will spawn in waves, with both their behavior patterns and deployment guided by an adaptive and dynamic scripting system. The game features a massive progression tree and the option of 3 specialties: support, assault or sharp-shooting.

The Payday: The Heist game is due to launch on PC and PlayStation Network via a digital download sometime later this year. You can read more about the game via the website. Do you like the sound of the Payday: The Heist game?
