Conspiracies, Clowns, and Feds!

By 2018-04-23PAYDAY 2

Spring Break 2018 has not even started fully but we already have some crazy dude posting about the “deep-state” and other theories evolving around Washington D.C. We still have no clue who he is or what’s going on, but see for yourself: thesecretisreallyreal[]

But enough about him, today’s release includes a new stealth heist, some of you may recognize the location! Additionally, we don’t want you to be scared in the dark while sneaking around corners, so we added a new flashlight melee weapon and some new night vision goggles. You might think, this is just another mask in your inventory, but guess what, they actually work! Experience heisting in a new “light” with your new goggles or the old Batshit Crazy and Cloaker-san masks!

Ultimate Edition Changes, Sales, and Free 2 Play

Last week we changed our Ultimate Edition setup a bit, making the PAYDAY 2: Base Game available to buy & gift again for a reduced price of $9.99. Additionally, we joined the Steam Spring VR Sale and extended it for our players for the whole duration of Spring Break 2018 until April 29th. PAYDAY: The Heist, PAYDAY 2: Base Game and PAYDAY 2: Ultimate Edition are now on sale, so don’t miss out. Last but not least, the Base Game will be Free 2 Play for the whole duration of the event, so no more excuses!

Steam Privacy Settings

With the recent changes to Steam’s Privacy Policy, we’ve seen some issues with hosting and joining lobbies for users who have their accounts set to the new default – ‘Private’. The issue is easily remedied by setting your account as either ‘Public’ or ‘Friends-Only’.
