How Payday 2 is preparing for this week’s Crimefest
PayDay 2 developer Overkill Software has offered a few comments on the impossibility of continuing support on last generation consoles. In a Steam Community post accompanying the announcement, Overkill Software announced it would be discontinuing support for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox versions. Now that the Xbox One version of PayDay 2 has overcome its launch struggles, the PayDay Twitter account is getting hammered by angry last-gen players. In both instances, players were referred back to the Steam Community post.
In connection with this, we have decided to retire the PayDay 2 update development on Xbox and PlayStation 3. We wish we could provide more updates.

As a countermeasure to the stealth activities of the clowns, we have decided to exert more direct influence through one of our holdings- Gensec Industries, a company we know you are familiar with, Commissioner. Gensec has announced the Sentinel system and personnel upgrade program. The Sentinels, our new agents, are being dispatched across the country to provide free “consultation services.
Our agents will also remain on-site to supervise these adjustments, and the eye is always upon them. Gensec Sentinels are not heavily armored, but they wear an ECM-proofed Titan pager system attached to their pagers, their headsets If a Gensec Sentinel dies, their pager will go off Notes: We’ve taken to calling them the “G-men” for how they suddenly appear with all the answers I don’t know how many times the police have arrived at the scene after the clowns have escaped, leaving only a stack of their ECM gizmos behind.

It’s easy to knock a game for its lack of originality – but what if sticking to a successful format actually works? PAYDAY is built off of the same mentality, nothing really compares to getting a good team together and fighting off forces that are hell-bent on stopping the player from making off with a huge payout whether it be cash, diamonds, or gold. Gamers can also drop ammo or medical bags to help support the team. If players are running around without coordination, they’ll find the game over screen will come up fast, a lesson made especially true on the harder difficulties.
There are a total of six heists for players to take part in, and thankfully they are all very unique. The first mission has players engage in the average day bank heist, whereas the Green Bridge mission focuses on releasing a convict from custody.
Payday 2’s Xbox One Matchmaking Being Remade to Address Problems
Its mix of bombastic action and tense stealth was so much fun, and the constant stream of updates and DLC meant that I could keep playing it forever. Payday 2 sees you and a crew of AI or fellow humans taking on dozens of different heists. You could be breaking into a bank vault, stealing a rare artifact from a museum or infiltrating an FBI safehouse to take out someone who ratted you out.

Payday 2 developer Overkill Software has apologised to Xbox One players impacted by recent matchmaking issues and promised it is working on a solution. It’s frustrating for us, but it’s obviously even more frustrating for you,” he said. We’re working on these changes right now and we hope to add them as soon as possible, no later than the end of the year. Posting on Reddit , Almir further addressed the issues and Overkill’s plans, revealing the solution was a “full remake” of matchmaking.
Our ambition is to go live with the new matchmaking system and additional fixes within the coming weeks, and no later than the end of the year. Does that mean that we want to release it on 31st of December? Absolutely not, we want to get it done ASAP. Film studio Lionsgate has announced a partnership with Payday publisher Starbreeze for a virtual reality game based on the Keanu Reeves movie John Wick.

‘Payday 3’ has been confirmed, but don’t expect it anytime soon
The console version of the multiplayer first-person shooter has suffered from a raft of matchmaking issues since it launched in June, as well as a lack of updates from Overkill – all at a time when the PC version of the game continues to enjoy solid support. Now, producer Almir Listo has apologised for the ongoing troubles, and said a radical overhaul of Payday 2’s systems was being worked on. A “full remake” of Payday 2’s Xbox One matchmaking system that will simplify the way players join games is in the works.

The Steam platform also enables gamers to save games online and enables in-game voice and chat. Steam supports Windows, OS X and Linux. I have a problem.
For every incredible multi-day heist that a squad of masked criminals was able to complete, there were six or seven more that simply never occured due to connection issues. Payday 2: Crimewave Edition tasks a team of up to four players with a number of devious criminal tasks, all of which have the same basic goal: get money, get paid. These missions usually start with some sort of casing phase in which players attempt to find out as much information as possible while being completely stealthy.
One wrong move can turn things into an all-out gunfight in fact, this is pretty much inevitable except for in a couple of heavy stealth heists , so being able to make your lives easier through stealth is of utmost importance in higher level missions. In general, the key to any given mission, be it intelligence on a meth operation or insane amounts of cash, is locked behind some sort of safe of barrier, which forces players to either drill through said obstacle or find other creative ways to get the goods.
The AI concerns are much more glaring, as the computer-controlled allies all but prevent players from completing higher level heists on their own or even with a team of two human-controlled criminals. The latter two points are especially infuriating, as nearly every mission sees players waiting for, and, subsequently, fixing drills. Speaking of issues that arise with a pretty straight port, the user interface for Crime.
This presents a problem, as that interface feels directly build for a keyboard and mouse, and navigating the cursor-based mission selection screen is a bit of a chore with a joystick. One would think that a more D-Pad-friendly version of Crime. For me personally, I faced around five match joining failures for every heist I was able to enter. Imagine finally getting into a match after numerous attempts, only to have the host boot you mere seconds before the end of the heist, thus eliminating any chance to level up or gain the cash you rightfully deserve.
