Payday 2, a hugely popular bank heist game for PC and consoles is here at E3 showing off their upcoming downloadable content, but arguably the biggest news they have to offer is for Xbox fans. Players on PC have been awash with new content on an ongoing basis, while console players have had to look on enviously, playing with the core game launched last summer. The wait is nearly over, as Overkill Games has announced that Armored Transport and the two Gage Weapon Pack add-ons will be available individually or as a discounted bundle. These packs combined will vastly increase the variety of weapons available to console players and offer new levels to master.
For those that haven't checked it out (and you totally should), Payday 2 is a cooperative first-person shooter where you and your buddies can get into all sorts of crime. This includes framing politicians by planting cocaine in their residence, taking hostages, hauling bags stuffed with gold bars to your getaway van, and getting into good old-fashioned firefights with SWAT teams. There's an extensive levelling up and weapon customization system, not to mention a whole range of creepy masks to wear while heisting. Though there's plenty of fast-paced action, Payday 2 places a ton of value on teamwork and stealth. Every level has randomized elements, ensuring that no two play-throughs are the same.
The new DLC for consoles is great news, but there are no specifics on timing or pricing just yet. It would be great to see other recent DLC packs come to Xbox as well, like the sniper pack and the recently-launched Shadow Heist, but we'll take what we can get. How many of you guys have played Payday 2 on console? Have you been getting frustrated by the lack of updates. Any PC players?
