Hello and welcome to the PAYDAY 3 Steam Community Hub!

My name is Elisabeth, and I am the Community Manager here at Starbreeze. I’ve been around for several of our games now, including PAYDAY 2 and PAYDAY: Crime War, and I’m pleased to now be able to start chatting to you all about PAYDAY 3 as well!

If you’ve been around, you may recognise me from the developer updates I create with Almir over on our YouTube channel, or if you’ve been around from even before that you may remember seeing me on our developer streams too. And if you’re entirely new here, I am very pleased to meet you for the first time :)

The year of PAYDAY 3 is finally upon us, and we’re stoked to see you’re all excited for the game to release. We see that you have a lot of questions about it as well, which is why we’ve compiled several of the most frequently asked questions here. Thanks for joining us, and remember to wishlist PAYDAY 3 on Steam!
