PAYDAY 2: Skills beta update 1 and update 97.7 are live

By 2016-04-29PAYDAY 2


We’re now live with with update 97.7 and an update to the skills beta.

Patch up time

So the skills beta has been live for almost 24 hours and we’re releasing our first patch. You’ve given us a lot of feedback, thoughts, ideas and last but not least bug reports. But this first patch is not focused on all that stuff – just the crucial issues that crashes the game.

So this will be a smaller, but necessary patch to make sure that you can continue playing the beta.

We will of course update the beta further down the line, but then we’ll gather more stuff into one larger chunk rather than just patch smaller fixes here and there. So in the future you can expect bigger things coming.

So keep playing and stay active in the skills beta sub forum!
