Enjoy first person shooters? If so, there’s a good chance you’ve played Payday 2 on Steam or a console. The follow-up has been rumored to slide onto next-gen consoles for quite some time, and today we finally got confirmation of the Payday 2: Crimewave Edition release date for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
We’re just going to cut to the chase with this one. Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will arrive “sometime” in June, and along with it comes a slew of DLC. Seriously, you’re getting a year’s worth of updates and DLC along with a new characters and many more new features including the Big Bank Heist. Needless to say, if it’s been a while since you played it on the Ps3, you’ll be thrilled with all the free swag.
In addition to all the digital goodies, Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will rock 1080p resolution and there’s a special deal for those who pre-order early. You will get 25% off the price of the game along with a special Red dot sight, a color pattern, mask pattern, console exclusive mask, exclusive skull mask, and a wad of in-game cash. The discount should make this one worth a pre-order, and those extras are just the cherry on top.
Overkill dropped the ball (numerous times) with the Ps3 and Xbox release of Payday 2, and while news of a June release is great, some folks are still going to be a little leery. That said, we have our fingers crossed it’s a more successful release this time around, and getting all the updates, etc… at once is certainly going to help. If you dig co-op shooters, Payday 2: Crimewave Edition is a game you’ll want to have an eye on this summer. Check back in June, and we’ll have a full write up on the game soon after it arrives.
