Overkill’s The Walking Dead launches cheaper Starter Edition

After a launch described as "disappointing" by owners Starbreeze, Overkill's The Walking Dead has a launched a cheaper 'Started Edition'. Costing £25 instead of £47, it contains all the content the cooperative zombie-busting FPS had at launch, but won't receive the "second season" of maps and things which started yesterday for Standard Edition owners. Instead, interested Starters will need to buy that piecemeal as DLC.…

After five years, players have reached Payday 2’s secret ending

Header image courtesy of "Sensei Tehminer". I like a good ARG. Both as a noise to scream atop blustery hills, and as a chain of convoluted mysteries that take the collective brainpower of entire communities to solve. Payday 2 players have been uncovering more and more of "The Secret" for the past five years, which has now culminated in cracking open a big ol' hidden…

Payday 2 raids the White House in new heist

Cooperative heist FPS Payday 2 has reached new heists of National Treasure-ish nonsense with the addition of a heist sending us into the White House to steal presidential pardons for ourselves. Sure. I've enjoyed Payday's escalation over the years from robbing banks through conspiracies and Illuminati and strange artifacts, and of course it leads to the White House. What else could it do - steal…

Overkill’s Walking Dead game gets four character trailers

With the final season of Telltale's The Walking Dead kicking off soon, there's no shortage of good interactive experiences from that fictional universe. Hell, I'm impressed if you've managed to stay caught up. I'm pretty sure I've still got at least half a season in my cue, just like the show itself. Meanwhile, serving as the Fear The Walking Dead to Telltale's series, there's the…

Payday 2 gets a bit Indiana Jones-y in new heist

Cooperative heist FPS Payday 2 has capped off a week of daily updates with a new heist, one busting into a heavily-defended research facility to swipe mysterious artefacts. They may or may not be magical or alien or... the story has grown a little more complicated than "steal money from a bank cos a boffin said so" over the past five years. The week-long 'Spring…

Payday 2’s latest heist is a Reservoir Dogs crossover

It's been a rollercoaster year for co-op hypercrime FPS Payday 2. After a gutsy decision in summer to give away five million copies of the base game for free, a re-launch as the Ultimate Edition heralded the end to the piecemeal DLC model of the game in favour of a single purchase of the new Ultimate Edition getting you all but the most questionable cross-promotional…

Enter The Gungeon meets Payday 2 with crossover items

Last year's Enter The Gungeon [official site] was a rather pleasant surprise, offering a satisfying blend of bullet-dodging shmuppiness paired with a bit of Binding of Isaac-ish'roguelite' dungeon-crawling and looting. This week saw the release of a cross-promotion update between Gungeon and Payday 2 [official site], with both games gaining a generous handful of free extra gubbins. The funny thing: none of them are guns.

Payday 2: Ultimate Edition is out, containing all DLC

Decent cooperative heist FPS Payday 2 [official site] yesterday launched its Ultimate Edition, the new version packing all the game's many DLC packs. Aside from one final character pack, that's all the DLC Payday 2 will ever have - and old DLC is no longer sold separately. I do enjoy Payday and recommend it, though I know its dozens of map, character, and weapon DLCs…

Payday 2 giving away 5 million free copies

Hey, you. Do you own co-op heist FPS Payday 2 [official site]? If not, go to Steam, click 'Install Game', and it'll be yours for keepsies. It's a steal! This comes as developers Overkill Software stop selling Payday 2's DLC, in preparation for the launch of an 'Ultimate Edition' including its 40-odd paid DLCs. Overkill haven't announce a release date for that yet. For now,…

Shambling: Overkill’s The Walking Dead delayed again

Co-op brain-busting FPS Overkill's The Walking Dead [official site] is now due in the second half of 2018, following yet another delay. It was previously due some time in 2017, and 2016 before that. Made by Payday developers Overkill Software, the game's still a bit of a mystery, beyond being a co-op zombie-killing FPS with L4D-sounding dynamic levels and new characters and stories in the…

Payday 2 brings back Heat Street, launches trial week

Co-op heist shooter Payday 2 [official site] has brought back the first game's Heat Street mission (as in the movie Heat, not the website Heat Street). It's a long firefight moving through city streets in the aftermath of a double-cross, not a copy of the movie's famous scene but quite fun. The level has arrived as part of a new update, which is being dragged…

John Wick Wicky Wah gets VR FPS, new Payday 2 DLC

I was pleasantly surprised by John Wick, an action film bouncing confidently along with cool murderers doing cool murders. Good stuff. It's a shame Wicky Wick's video game appearances are mostly just okay. Ol' Johnny Boy first popped up in Payday 2 [official site] in 2014, and with a cinematic sequel looming who's nipped back in for a DLC pack adding new Wick-Wicky-wah-wah heists and…

Pay quiddos for my little friend: Payday 2’s Scarface DLC

"Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in," Tony Dakota muttered in Scarface, his face dusted in icing sugar. And here he is, called out of retirement for two new bags of Payday 2 [official site] paid DLC. Ant has arrived in the co-op heist FPS himself as a playable character, armed with a chainsaw and His Little Friend, and a…

Payday 2 Gets New Safe House, New Heist, Much More

Cooperative first-person heister Payday 2 [official site] has concluded ten days of content updates - a little shindig developers Overkill called Hoxton's Housewarming Party. They really make a big scene out of everything, that mob. Don't even get me started on their weddings... Anyway! Additions include a new safe house chill-out zone buttled by John Cleese, a new enemy, new weapons, new masks, new wacky…

Payday 2 Biker DLC Introducing Playable Ron Perlman

As part of their recent promise to support Payday 2 [official site] for at least the next 18 months, Overkill Software have now revealed what its latest batch of DLC, due out on Thursday, is all about. It's two separate expansions - The Biker Heist and The Biker Character Pack - taking the total number of paid-for and free add-ons for the first-person robbery fest…

Payday 2 Drops Microtransactions, Payday 3 Confirmed

Last year, Overkill Games upset a pretty vocal corner of their Payday 2 [official site] community by introducing microtransactions to the co-op heist 'em up - something they'd previously promised to avoid. In an announcement made yesterday, Starbreeze - Overkill's parent company - revealed they've now acquired full rights to the Payday franchise and as such will scrap paid-for in-game items via the next update.…

Payday 2 And Goat Simulator Swap Goofy Crossover DLC

Checks calendar. Okay, it's not April 1. Checks Steam. There's definitely a store page for it. I guess this is really happening. The latest Payday 2 [official site] heist is themed around...Goat Simulator. And the latest Goat Simulator [official site] DLC is themed around... Payday 2.

Payday 2 Gets Point Break Remake Tie-In DLC

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)…

Payday 2 Adds More Microtransaction Bonuses

When Overkill Software first added TF2-like weapon crates to Payday 2 [official site], putting special gun skins with better stats in 'safes' unlocked by paying real money for 'drills', it went poorly. The vocal portion of the co-op heist FPS's playerbase were riled, to say the least. Overkill backpedalled a little, making it so folks might randomly earn free drills while playing, but it was…

Microtransaction Mishap: Payday 2’s ‘Safe’ Skin Tweak

We can be fairly certain that affordable time travel won't exist within our lifetimes because Payday 2 [official site] developers Overkill Software evidently haven't travelled back to last week and erase their mistake of adding microtransactions to unlock more-powerful versions of guns. If they had, memories of CS:GO-style weapon crates and keys concealing a random selection of garish weapon skins with better stats would fade…
