Payday 2 Trailer Showcases the Heist

By Keith Gray, 5 years ago
Payday 2, the 4-player co-op heist title from OVERKILL Software, is all set to bring the special "skills" that are required for bank robbing to consoles next month. 505 Games, the title's publisher, has released a new trailer today. David Goldfarb, the Game Director for the title, explains how the sequel introduces customisation options that are far superior to its predecessor, the original Payday. As a result, the game will have more of an RPG-feel to it with the opportunity to alter masks, weapons and other gadgets to make life as a career criminal in Washington that much easier.

Goldfarb also emphasises later in the footage that players are actively encouraged to execute the heist with their buddies, in co-op, as the game will be more difficult otherwise. As you'll see from the control commands in the video, the footage is taken from the PC version of Payday 2.

The action will soon come knocking on the disc tray of your Xbox 360, so you should probably take a look at the pre-order bonuses that are available to ensure that you are prepared when Payday 2 picks the lock on your wallet in August.
