Payday 2!

Post by Sephymuffins on Sat 30 Nov 2013, 02:24


Great gift for the holidays!  Wink

What is it?
"Payday 2 is a cooperative first-person shooter video game developed by Overkill Software. It is the sequel to Payday: The Heist. It was released for Microsoft Windows on 13 August 2013,[1] and for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on 16 August.[2] On 24 July 2013, a beta version for Windows was made available on Steam to users who pre-purchased Payday 2 Career Criminal Edition. 
Payday 2 involves the player and their team, which consists of either friends or randomly assigned players, performing bank heists and robberies."

Gameplay?

"Payday 2 is similar to most first person shooters, but instead of running-and-gunning, more emphasis is put on the cooperation of players. Players spawn outside of the designated heist location in civilian clothes until the player holds the action button and dons a mask. This gives the players a tactical advantage, being able to infiltrate the location without suspicion and potentially disabling security systems from the inside.
When a player carries a bag of loot or equipment, this adds weight to the carrier, slowing them down and tilting the camera. The player is able to throw the loot to the ground to regain speed, or towards another player to pick up and carry instead.
Money looted from heists is used as currency to buy guns and gun modifications, as well as items that may help on future heists, such as the codes for window shutters to prevent the player being shot through them. Heists also provide experience points, which upon leveling up unlock more guns to purchase as well as skill points, being able to spend those skill points on perks with an appropriate sum of money. To that there are 4 skill trees, "Mastermind", "Enforcer", "Technician" and "Ghost", each featuring a customization tree of associated skills and equipment to unlock and they can be mixed and matched as per the player's preference."

SO!  This game currently (as of November 29th 2013) is on sale on Steam!  Has anyone else played the first game or the second installment?  
So far it has been amazingly fun.  I am still a newbie (level 3 as of right now), however I'm slowly getting the hang of it and how to correctly play.  You sort of feel all tough playing this game, though I DO NOT condone robbing banks, violence and/or taking hostages. Facepalm

Payday 2 is extremely intense and it has your heart pounding at times.  Your goal really, is to execute a robbery or heist either stealthily, or as smoothly as possible.  Because of the RPG elements, it makes the game something you want to continue playing!  If things can go wrong, they will and the more you play and unlock skills and/or weapons, the "easier" it gets.  I've never felt so alive playing a game!  LaughingTwisted Evil

Hi there,

I did play a "free weekend" (or something similar) for the first edition, but it was pretty boring to me.
Does 2 look a lot like the first one?
