PayDay 2

PayDay: The Heist 2

A sequel to the first-person online shooter PayDay: The Heist from 2012. Both games were developed by Overkill Software in co-operation with Starbreeze AG. Players become members of a gang that specializes in bank heists, kidnapping, and drugs transportation. The main campaign consists of six dangerous jobs, offered via the CRIMENET system. The creators of PayDay 2 took special care to diversify the missions – as some mission elements are random, no two playthroughs are exactly the same. Just as in the first game, gameplay puts emphasis on the cooperation of up to four players. The game's impressive visuals are powered by Diesel Engine 2.0.

“Payday 2” is a cooperative FPS, a continuation of the successful production from 2011. The game, just as the previous part, was developed by Stockholm-based Overkill Software studio.

Players are the members of a gang. The action takes place in Washington and the story focuses on a series of dangerous orders received via CRIMENET system. The missions involve to up to four players. The game offers a number of different types of tasks; apart from robberies there are kidnapping and drug smuggling. Playable characters are divided into four specializations (Mastermind, Enforcer, Ghost and Technician). Each class has its own skill tree and can use special equipment.

The gameplay of “Payday 2” is focused on co-operation – you must work closely with your gang colleagues to success. Guards, police officers, FBI agents, SWAT and other criminals will try to stop you. Repetitive tasks are not boring as every time they somehow differ. It is brought by the randomness of events and location of opponents controlled by AI. The shopping before the mission has an impact on the gameplay as well. You can buy codes that open the door or secure a quick escape from the crime scene with a helicopter. Compared to the previous part, the game’s AI has been significantly improved. Enemies are now more demanding and use smart strategies. Complete the missions to receive additional equipment. The game includes a system to modify your arms and clothing.
