WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. – June 10, 2014 – 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, and Overkill Software, a Starbreeze Studio, today announced the first DLC packs for the console versions of heist-based, co-op shooter PAYDAY 2. The first content rollout, which includes the Armored Transport DLC and two Gage Weapon drops, will be available soon for the Xbox 360┬« video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation┬«3 computer entertainment system. Players will also have the option to purchase Swag Bag #1, which contains all three DLC packs at a discounted price.

 

Key features of the console DLC packs include:

The Armored Transport DLC

The Armored Transport DLC lets players do every heister’s dream — robbing armored transports full of valuables — right in the middle of Washington D.C. If they’re lucky, players can hit it big with a classic train robbery.

Up to four friends co-operate on the heists, and as the crew progresses they have a chance to unlock an even more rewarding job — a classic train robbery. New weapons, weapon modifications, masks, patterns and materials have been added to let players continue to build and customize their own guns and gear.

Gage Weapon Pack #1

Frag Grenades make their first entry into the PAYDAY series and are bound to spice things up. With the new Grenade Case asset, players can share grenades with each other during the heists. Three new weapons are added and players can now toggle between Single and Auto-fire with all full auto weapons. Four new animal masks have been added, as well as new patterns and materials.

Gage Weapon Pack #2

With Cloakers putting fear in the hearts of every criminal, Gage has the perfect antidote as he brings back the Light Machine Gun and introduces melee combat weapons to counter them in this new weapon pack. With the Light Machine Guns, players can provide cover for each other by unleashing devastating attacks.

Three Light Machine Guns and four Knives are added to the player’s arsenal. Four new masks from Gage’s collection have been added, as well as new patterns and materials.

 

The award-winning PAYDAY 2 casts gamers as a member of the infamous PAYDAY crew as they work their way through the biggest, most elaborate heists of their careers using the all new Crime.net system, overseen by the mysterious Bain. Designed from the ground up to be the ultimate four player, co-operative experience, PAYDAY 2 features four new skill trees — the charismatic Mastermind, the heavy Enforcer, the gadget-crazy Technician and the super stealthy Ghost — which, alongside a versatile weapon modification system and all new mask creator, gives players the chance to live out their fantasy of being a career criminal.
