Payday 2 heist video
Payday 2's dev team attempts a daring heist in a new trailer for the upcoming bank robbery sequel...
Bank robberies are wrong, we all know that, but with so much Hollywood sparkle, they can also be cool. The bank robbery genre of movies often depicts super stylish crews of robbers, realistic or otherwise, that make for interesting casts, and the tension of a good old fashioned bank heist makes for some great cinema (well, sometimes). So, a game based around this nefarious money-grabbing was always going to appeal, especially an FPS with Left 4 Dead-style co-op and random mission structure. Enter Payday: The Heist.
The original 2011 game was greeted with mixed response, with the console port coming off worse than the PC release, but the game was a hit with fans nonetheless, and a sequel is coming this month.
Below you'll find the latest video for the game in which the dev team attempts to rob a bank, carefully using their numerous class-specific skills to get into position without raising an alarm. Of course, as is often the case, the best laid plans...
Payday 2 will be released on PC via Steam on August 13, and the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will arrive a few days later around August 16. Now, I'm off to watch The Kill Point.
