By 2017-11-23PAYDAY 2

Happy Thanksgiving Heisters

We are happy to bring the VR beta back online one day earlier than originally planned. After yesterdays update to the main game the beta is now synced up and ready for you. Alongside a few fixes we also added a few extra heists as well.

Earlier today we added a hotfix to the main game as well as fixing some issues that appeared during the evening.

Hope you all are having a great holiday and keep those helmets flying.

Turkey and Heisting!

Adaptive Quality

Adaptive quality is a system that, when you play the game, will adjust the render resolution to a range between 85%-140% of the resolution of the HMD. The system is designed to try and keep a steady 90 fps for a comfortable VR experience. This will give better quality visuals on stronger machines.
