We’ve got a lot of news to share with you this week, more info on this below.

Perk Decks Open Beta – Thanks for your feedback

First off, we’d like to thank you for all your comments regarding the Perk Deck beta that we’ve been having the past few weeks. We’ve now pushed it live, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve stopped working on it in any way – we will continue to listen to your feedback and monitor the changes and how you use them.

Updated Main Menu Open Beta is now live

The Main Menu in PAYDAY 2 has looked the same since the game was released in August 2013. Since then we’ve made a lot of changes to the game but many user interface elements have remained the same. We’ve previously changed the player inventory and have received a lot of positive response. We’re now looking to update the Main Menu and are looking to hear your feedback. The Updated Main Menu Open Beta is now live and available in the BETAS tab. If you’ve never participated in an Open Beta, we explain how to below.

Skill Trees Open Beta to be launched soon
