Since launch, Payday 2 [official site] has received a staggering 39 different bits of DLC that range, from festive soundtracks to cross-promotional movie-game tie ins. John Wick joined the co-op crime FPS last year, and now it’s going a bit Point Break. Overkill have teamed up with Warner Bros. to add things loosely inspired by the upcoming remake (no, not the 1991 Patrick Swayze-starring original) to Payday 2, in both a free update and extra paid DLC.
The Point Break celebrations come in two parts. The first is the free-of-charge Bodhi Character Pack, which adds the leader of the Ex-Presidents gang (originally played by Swayze, now to be played by a fellow named Edgar Ramirez), new weapons, perks and masks. The second is ‘The Point Break Heists’ DLC itself, which costs £4.99 and brings with it a new pistol, four new melee weapons, six new songs, and two new heists named ‘Beneath the Mountain’ and ‘Birth of Sky’. You get to rob a plane 20,000 feet above the ground, then parachute out.
Speaking of the original film, Starbreeze CEO Bo Andersson-Klint said: “Point Break has always been a huge inspiration for the Payday games, so to be able to integrate the film’s characters and story lines into Payday 2 is a dream come true.”
The character pack was released free as an update, and should have downloaded automatically, while the DLC is sold on Steam. Here’s a look at what they both add:
